norwex cloths – product review!

hey crunchies! it’s been FOREVER since i’ve posted! but that’s life, right? it always finds a way to not go how you planned ❤
i miss you guys.

so awhile back, i was contacted by the lovely rachel from norwex. she reached out to me about these antibacterial microfiber cloths, and it of course piqued my interest being both water-only and all-natural with cleaning my home.

when asked to give them a try and review them, i was over the moon!!
as always, my review of any products (including this one) are completely honest!

norwex cleaning cloths

what is Norwex?

it’s a fantastic company that’s mission is to “[improve] quality of life by radically reducing the use of chemicals in household and personal care products.” how perfect right?!

they have products for cleaning both body and home.

what are the Norwex cloths?

they’re these super soft, super awesome, microfiber antibacterial cleaning cloths. they have cloths for cleaning your counters, windows, face, body, removing makeup, a hair turban, bath towels, bath mats, dusting mit, etc.

caring for them is a bit different than other cloths. you can’t use any soaps, oils, etc. you can wash them with clothes and sheets, but not with towels! towels have too much lint. so really, anything linty shouldn’t be washed with these cloths. i’ve been washing them in a castile soap mix, but was advised it could buildup on the cloths. if that were to happen, i could just give them a good vinegar rinse and they’d be good to go again. cool!

what did i use them for?

water-only washing:

before i say anything, i will say very honestly, i never want to use any other cloth on my body or face. i’m completely smitten with these body cloths. they are so soft, but they exfoliate and really work wonders with water-only washing. my skin always feels so soft and clean! after i’m done, i wring the cloth out and leave it hanging on my shower curtain rod to dry. i only wash it once a week (it’s antibac, remember!). over the past couple months, i’ve never experienced any sort of mildewy smell or anything. this cloth is magical! now that i’m all packed to visit family for the holidays, my cloth is packed right with my clothes. i won’t leave without it!

another thing.. rachel mentioned she uses it to shave instead of using a shaving cream. not gonna lie, i was SO skeptical… but i tried it! i exfoliated my legs with the cloth (folded the cloth a few times and “wiped” my legs a few times over), and then got right to shaving with just my razor and water. i don’t understand how, but it works! i didn’t feel any irritation! after my shower, i just used a dab of CO on each leg  as usual, and no burns/cuts/etc. seriously, this. cloth. is. magical.

stop using your acne creams, cleansers, lotions and potions and USE THIS CLOTH! the antibac and mild exfoliation action will kick your acne to the curb.

look how soft… makes you wanna rub your face on it huh?

household cleaning:

since i use a vinegar based cleaner, this cloth was perfect to use. i’ve cleaned my bathroom and kitchen with the cloth multiple times, and every time i notice how much more dirt and stuff it picked up, compared to using my normal cleaning cloths. the first time i cleaned my bathtub, i actually felt pretty gross. i thought my tub was sparkling clean all the time…and alas, it was not! but now it is!

my mirrors were spotless… my laptop screen spotless… windows spotless…

you can use them to dust, too. dry or wet, these babies do it all!

Norwex

this post sounds like an infomercial…i’m aware. but really crunchies, these cloths are really THAT great!

for more info on Norwex and their cloths/other products, click HERE. you can order straight from rachel! if you have any questions, feel free to contact her! she’s an angel.

if you can only get 1 type of cloth, go for the body cloth. you’ll notice a huge difference in the softness and clean-feeling-ness of your skin (yep, just made that up.) then when you get a chance, spring for the other ones! they’re totally worth it!

i hope you fall in love with these cloths, too!
HUGE thank you to rachel and norwex for changing my body and home cleaning routines. i am forever grateful!

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS about the products and/or purchasing them (EVEN INTERNATIONAL READERS), please email Rachel at RachelKNowak@yahoo.com 🙂

  1. Hi Darianna,
    Yes, they totally would hold up for a week of camping! Just make sure you rinse them well after every use and give them a good chance to air dry between uses. While they are drying, the microsilver is inhibiting the bacterial growth, by the time it’s dry, your cloth is clean. Bacteria cannot reproduce in a silver enviroment. You’d probably want to wash it when you got home though, a week of using it as your only source of a “shower” and probably using lake water (?) or well water (?) to clean the cloths will take its toll eventually. Not sure what your water source is while away camping, I’m just guessing there. You’ll have never felt cleaner whilst camping then if you take a Norwex Body Cloth with you! ENJOY. Norwex also has hand and body towels that have the micro silver in them as well, they roll up really small and are light, great for hiking in camping spots where you don’t want too much weight in your packs. Also have Travel packs, small sized Enviro cloths that come in a pack of 5 and are fantastic replacements for hand washing or hand sanitizers, just put water on your hands and rub away with the mini Enviro cloth to sanitize your hands. Again, just rub against itself, rinse out and hang dry. Those Enviro cloths pick up 99% of bacteria with just water alone. Hope this info helps you out for your next camping trip! If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to contact me! Cheers, Tanya

  2. Would these hold up and be efficient enough for a week of camping without an actual shower? Looking for something anti-bacterial and fast drying that won’t hold odor and cleans efficiently.
