NORWEX FOR HOUSE CLEANERS


Ever wonder if House Cleaners would be able to actually clean a house from top-to-bottom with Norwex? The answer is a resounding ‘Yes!’ Norwex is the BEST choice for House Cleaners. My fellow Canadian consultant Crystal Moore has spent time professionally cleaning houses. Her top choice was Norwex. What she discovered and loved the most was how much time she saved using Norwex! And of course, she was able to use green cleaners that actually worked.

Whether you clean houses for a living, and are looking to add Norwex to your routine, or you’re wondering if you can clean your own house with just Norwex, Crystal has shared with me what she brings with her to do a top-to-bottom clean, so you can see for yourself that it can be done!

NORWEX FOR HOUSE CLEANERS

ENVIRO CLOTH AND WINDOW CLOTH

Being so versatile, and so easy to use, these are the MUST have items for your cleaning bag. You can walk around the house with a damp Enviro Cloth, wiping down doorknobs, fingerprints on walls, stainless steel appliances, smudge marks on windows and mirrors, bathroom sinks and toilets with these. This cloth picks up grease, grime, germs and dirt with just water (it can remove up to 99% of bacteria from the surface)! Have a stash of different colors, that are used for different purposes (ie. blue is general purpose, pink is sinks and mirrors, green is toilets, etc).

Use your Window cloth to polish appliances, windows, mirrors, glass surfaces and glossy furniture after cleaning them with the Enviro.

DUSTING MITT

This makes it easy to zip around and dust every surface. It uses static electricity to attract dust to it. On really dark furniture, get it slightly damp for an even more effective dust. Shake it outside like a polaroid picture every few rooms to get rid of the excess dust. This thing even gets the black dust from wood stoves! This is very effective for wiping down hardwood stairs too. Ever use one of those swifter-duster thingy’s? Those things are a waste of money people (sorry if you use them, ha!). You can get some with fragrance in them. Oh. man. Hello, asthma!

CLEANING PASTE

Every glass-top stove needs the cleaning paste (with the Spirisponge of course, followed by an Envirocloth wipe and Window cloth polish) to leave an impressive gleam behind. You can use this paste with an Envirocloth to wipe off scuff marks from a wall. Use it on tubs and glass shower doors that have a lot of hard water build up. Scrub up kitchen sinks. Great for cleaning up grout too! Like it says in the Cleaning Paste review, it’s elbow grease in a jar. {How are you living without this stuff?}

SPIRINETTS

These little guys are the secret to leaving things shiny! Kitchen and bathroom faucets, kitchen sinks, etc (as long as they’re not brushed nickel or brushed steel). Removes rust. Picks up sticky-stuck-on stuff from kitchen counters and floors. Hard water build up from drips that people have NEVER been able to get rid of. Gooey build-up around the edge of a sink. Just rub gently (unless it’s tile floor or grout), as it can scratch surfaces. And avoid using in plastic lined tubs, as it will scratch these for sure.



BLUE DIAMOND CLEANER

This stuff is so effective in a shower, especially when paired with a Spirsponge on any collection of hard water, whether it’s on tile, tub, the faucet or the glass doors (*Rant: Crystal hates glass door showers and would have probably quit if it wasn’t for the Blue Diamond Cleaner, which actually helped her get anywhere with them!). Have a spray bottle of this, diluted with water, in your bag. To use, spray on the surface, leave for ten minutes, then wipe or rinse clean. You can squirt the Blue Diamond, full strength, in the toilet bowl too (and you only need a little). This is a cleaner that is SAFE and gentle on your body, lungs and the water system!

MICRO CLEANING HAND PAD

Take one and cut it into fourths, as it disintegrates as it’s used. This little hack will make it last longer. Keep this on hand for those stubborn wall marks. It’s great for so many random things too, that you’ll be missing it when you run out!

THE MOP

Last, but not least, the mop. The beautiful, wonderful, versatile, adjustable, money-saving, life-made-easy, Norwex mop. Use the dry mop pad on hardwood floors to pick up dust and animal hair, as well as get under couches and beds. Use the rubber brush to wipe all the dust and dirt in the garbage can, then switch to the wet mop pad. Some houses are really soiled, so take the wet pad off after a few rooms, rub it under running water to clean it up a bit, give it a good squeeze, then tackle the next dirty room with it. Other houses may not have super soiled floors, but it begins to dry after a few rooms, so spray it with water to dampen it again. Switch to the Tile Mop pad on the tile floors for extra scrubbing power, as the wet pad doesn’t work so great on tile.

What about if you clean more than one house in a day? Give all of your cloths and mop pads a good rub and rinse after your clean, before moving on to the next house. And have extra Enviro cloths too, that you save for the next house.

When you come home: Throw all of your cloths and mop pads in my washing machine, using hot water and the Norwex Ultra Power Plus laundry detergent. Then toss them in the dryer, plop them in your bags when they’re done, and you’re ready for tomorrow! Since house cleaners will use their Norwex products SO frequently, give them a deep clean once in a while for good maintenance.

Here’s an ‘inside look’ into Crystal’s cleaning bag (from another direct selling company called Thirty-One. Isn’t it so cute?! It’s like it was made for this very purpose!)

Norwex_Cleaning_Bag_DuskThe orange and yellow plastic tubs in the bag are handy for holding wet or dirty Enviro cloths, damp sponges and gloves. Crystal says that Toms are her must-have indoor shoes for cleaning. They prevent dirt from sticking to your socks (at the really dirty houses), make cleaning more comfortable, and double as great dancing shoes!

Sometimes, she’ll wear an apron with pockets to stash her Spirisponges and Window cloth, as she’s zipping around the house.

She mainly wears the apron when she’s alone though, as it assists with dancing and singing loudly to the music she cranks at the empty houses.

“Oh, so that’s what my cleaning lady does when I’m not there!” And yes, she told me that people have come home to her crooning before. They were more embarrassed than her though, and those clients now ring their own doorbell before then come home. ;o)

Happy Cleaning!

NORWEX IS EXPENSIVE. BUT HERE’S WHY IT’S WORTH EVERY PENNY

Why is Norwex SO expensive?

One of the most frequently asked questions from potential customers us consultants receive is, ‘Why is Norwex So Expensive?‘ People who are newly introduced to the product love it, but are surprised by the cost. I admit – so was I. It was hard to wrap my head around the cost of these ‘rags.’ And who in their right mind pays ‘that much’ for just a mop? However, the more I used the products, the more I began to ‘understand’ the reason for the expense. So let’s talk about why it is expensive, and if it’s actually worth it.

QUALITY

This is not your dollar store microfiber. Or even the microfiber you can buy at the hardware store or from other home party companies. It’s a whole different level.

Contains BacLock®, an antibacterial agent woven into the fibers, for self-cleansing purposes. Does your microfiber self-cleanse in between uses?
More absorbent than the average item made of microfiber, as it holds seven times its weight in water.
Guaranteed: While Norwex offers a 60-day return policy, that’s not even the best part. The best part is the warranty. You’re purchasing products with an exceptional warranty on them. All the microfiber products have a two-year warranty. Other products vary in length in warranty, from 60 days to 5 years. And from experience, as a consultant, who has made warranty claims for her customers: Norwex is GREAT to deal with. They don’t give customers a hard time. They offer superb customer service that impresses me every time!
Durability: Customers find that their products last them much longer than 2 years. While every customers experience will be different, based on frequency of use, you too will be impressed with how long they last!
1/200th the size of a human hair: To compare that to other microfiber products you use, think of it this way. In order to be defined at microfiber, the fibers are split at least 1/6th the size of a human hair. Compare that to the Norwex microfiber. With at difference of 194 splits, you can see why Norwex is that much better in quality than others. And ask yourself this about the microfiber that you buy at the hardware store – Do you know how many times it has been split? That’s always hard to know, because it’s not on the packaging (I look, every time)!

A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY

The Ultra Power Plus detergent, Blue Diamond All-in-One Cleaner, and Odour Eliminator (to name a few) – these are concentrated formulas. So, you only need a little, and that means they’ll last you a long time! You don’t need to be intimidated by the cost of the Blue Diamond, compared to your ‘regular’ bathroom cleaner. This will last you MUCH longer than the other brands, that you typically need to replace every few months.

One product that has a history of lasting a long time is the Cleaning Paste. This comes in a container as a hard cake. You only need to scrape off a little bit for your job. That means that it will last you a long time. A year. Two years. Perhaps even three, depending on the types of jobs you’re using it for (and it can be used for so many!), and how frequently you use it.

Or what about the Leather Care. This is a versatile product, like the Cleaning Paste. You can use it on couches, boots, shoes, purses, coats, saddles, belts, car interiors and dash boards. And yet – you use it all the time, for so many things, and it continues to last for YEARS.

CUSTOMER SERVICE

With Norwex, you get your own PERSONAL company rep to help you with your products. Who doesn’t love personalized customer service? Here are some examples of what I mean:

You received your new products, but you’re not sure how to use them. Contact me, and I’ll walk you through it!
You’ve had your products for a year, but are suddenly encountering a problem. Easy. You just contact me, we’ll talk through it, and figure it out together.
You have a cleaning problem, but not sure what product to use, and wonder where to start. I can help you with that!
Uh-Oh. Your product has broken/fallen apart and it’s been less than the warranty period. Simply contact me, and I’ll get a replacement sent
I’m here. For you. Always!

IT’S ACTUALLY NOT THAT EXPENSIVE, WHEN YOU DO THE MATH

Most Norwex products actually significantly reduce the use of costly cleaning products. Many Norwex products are reusable, washable, and durable, so once you’ve purchased them, you’ve automatically reduced the amount of products you need to keep purchasing on a monthly basis at the grocery store or your run to Wal-Mart.

Norwex seems expensive. But look at how much you're actually saving!

I GET IT

I get the whole cost thing. When I first got my hands on the bath mat, I, a consultant, was SHOCKED at how small it was. For the price I was paying, I was expecting a very large bath mat! I couldn’t ‘believe’ it and figured I was NOT going to like this product that was obviously too tiny, and way overpriced. However, I was totally proven wrong. This mat is worth every.penny. It’s simply better than any bath mat I’ve ever used. Heck – I even use one in my puppy’s kennel for absorbing his accidents, it’s that worth it!

Every time I get my hands on a Norwex product I hadn’t used before, I admit that I’m surprised by them. I always begin as a sceptic, and turn into a lover! These products are practical, made with quality, and are going to last me longer than the ‘average’ product. They work, they work well, and also make a real difference. My home is a safer place for me, and my family, because of these products. I’m making a real difference in reducing chemicals in my own life, and in my own community.

DON’T FORGET THE FREE STUFF

You can actually get Norwex for FREE! Norwex is a party company. So, when you help Norwex by telling your friends about the company, you are rewarded with free product. A business model that rewards its customers? Awesome! Hosting a Norwex party is your opportunity to tell your friends about a great product. Something practical that they’ll use, everyday. You’re sharing a product that makes a difference in their life, because it’s radically reducing the chemicals in their home. Which ultimately, helps them create what Norwex refers to as a safe haven. You’re not bullying your friends into buying. You’re offering them a game-changer in their homes!

OUR CORE VALUES

Integrity. Trust. Respect. Working for this company has shown me that Norwex cares about its customers, and is always creating with these values in mind, for their customers. That’s worth a lot!

HOW TO HAVE SANDAL READY FEET FOR SUMMER!

I don’t know about you, but the older I get, the more I have dry, cracked feet, particularly my heels. I can DISTINCTLY remember, when I was in my very early twenties, seeing an ‘older’ womans’ heels (she was only in her 40s), and noticing how terribly cracked they were. My heels were the opposite: smooth and supple. Seriously. Supple is the best word to describe my heels at that age. And I remember thinking – “No. Never me. I will never-ever-no-not-ever let me feet get so bad that they are permanently cracked and dry like that. My heels will always remain supple.” Why I can remember thinking this, I’ll never know. It’s not only obtusely random, but some days, I can barely remember to put the milk in the fridge, not the cupboard!

Last night, I was examining my feet. And I realized – my heels are the heels of ‘an old woman’ (old woman as defined by an early twenties woman). They’ve become cracked. Dry. Anti-supple. I am aghast. I have let my naive twenty self down! And so, I’ve decided that I will bring back the supple. And I have access to the secret weapon that will eliminate my need to worry about my dry, cracked feet.

DRY, CRACKED FEET, MEET: THE FOOT STONE

I’ve been highlighting lots of hidden gems offered by Norwex on the blog lately, in a series titled, “Did You Know Norwex Sells….” so you don’t miss out on any of the many items Norwex offers. Did you know that Norwex sells a Foot Stone? This product is small, and doesn’t always get noticed, but it leaves a big impact on your feet! I have sadly neglected this little gem on the blog, as it has only once been briefly mentioned by me. gasp I love that Norwex has expanded so much into offering great personal care products to help people radically reduce the amount of chemicals in their homes. You may know some of the more well known personal care products, like the Naturally Timeless Skin Care Line, the Body Lotion, Shower Gel or Hand Soap.

The Norwex Foot Stone is 100% pure pumice – nature’s remedy for dry, rough skin! You can use this to safely and gently remove corns and smooth away calluses and rough skin. And this stone has a best friend. While they are sold separately, they are better together! Like Han Solo and Chewie, the Foot Stone and Timeless Organic Shea Butter can conquer the unknown crevices on your feet!

HERE’S HOW TO USE THEM

Rub the Foot Stone, either dry or wet, over the areas of your feet that need attention.
Rinse and dry them.
Apply a small amount of the Timeless Organic Shea Butter all over your feet.
To amp up the moisturizing benefits, do this just before going to bed, and wear cotton socks to hold the moisture in (*Note: you won’t be able to stop touching your feet the next day, the first time you do it!).
Follow this routine regularly for the most effective long term results. (ie. on the nights you don’t fall asleep in your clothes)
Wanna know something cool about our Shea Butter? It is an Ecocert-certified organic cosmetic! The Mediterranean Meditation Olive Oil Salt Scrub is another Norwex product that has been Ecocert-certified. WE ARE LEGIT!!!! Sorry. I love all excuses to use that word, for some reason.

Here’s a fun fact about your foot stone: You can break off a piece of easily, and use that piece to clean heavy build-up on the inside of your toilet bowl? It’s true! It will help rub away the built up ring in your bowl, without scratching the bowl!

SO, GET SUPPLE AND SMOOTH WITH THE FOOT STONE AND SHEA BUTTER, AND SHOW OFF THOSE THOSE FEET THAT LOOK LIKE THEY’RE IN THEIR TWENTIES AGAIN!

NORWEX CLEANING PASTE FOR QUICK AND EASY BATHTUB CLEANING

We all have those messes that need just a little bit of ‘elbow’ grease! If you’re anything like me I like to clean quickly and efficiently because I usually have a list a mile long of things to do! One thing I love about Norwex is that it allows me to get a deep clean without putting in the time that a deep clean typically takes.

Recently while cleaning my bathroom I was amazed at how quickly the Norwex Cleaning Paste removed the gunk and buildup in my bathtub! The Cleaning Paste is not only environmentally friendly but it also POLISHES and PROTECTS chrome, stainless steel, porcelain, and other such surfaces when you use it! Wow! That’s amazing!

As you can see there is the typical build up of dirt and soap that happens between cleanings! I got out my trusty Bathroom Scrub Mitt and was able to clean my bathtub in under 60 seconds in 3 easy steps.

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR BATHTUB IN UNDER 1 MINUTE:

Put on your Norwex Bathroom Scrub Mitt and wet it thoroughly with water.
Swipe the wet Bathroom Scrub Mitt across the surface of the cleaning paste to get the cleaner onto the mitt.
Clean the surface with Bathroom Scrub Mitt and Cleaning Paste and watch it sparkle within seconds!
It’s that easy! Another great thing about the Cleaning Paste is that it lasts for a very long time! A little bit of this stuff goes a long way saving you TIME and MONEY!

The Cleaning Paste made such an incredible difference in such a short amount of time! I love how Norwex is able to create products that not only simplify our daily lives but also helps to create a chemical free home so that I don’t have to worry about what my family is being exposed to!

I just wanted to write a quick blog to share with you one of my favorite products! CONTACT me if you have any questions

WHAT YOU NEED TO START POTTY TRAINING!

Check out these Norwex products before you start potty trainingPotty training: a mysterious process in which tiny humans learn to use the facilities.

Synonyms: frustrating, exhausting, messy, patience draining.

Potty training is one of those moments when you panic a little because your child didn’t come with a “how to” manual. All of a sudden, preschool is requiring your child to be potty trained or dad is antsy to stop buying diapers or other peers are hitting this milestone; and now you have a new project with no clue where to start! One of my friends went through this for the first time recently and shared some tips and essential Norwex products she used throughout the process.

“When you start potty training, you need a plan and a strategy. If you are in need of a plan, I recommend Oh Crap! Potty Training: Everything Modern Parents Need to Know to Do it Once and Do it Right by Jamie Glowacki. This book offers great how to’s and advice to clear up some of the confusion created in potty training. Take heart, the accidents are only temporary. Your child will learn how to use the toilet. Some day, you will hear a flush while you’re in the living room and sigh in relief that your child can do things himself.

Once you have a plan, you’ll want a strategy on how to clean up the messes. It seems self-explanatory, but you’ll want to know how you’ll be cleaning up the messes that occur once the diaper comes off. If you have any special rugs or don’t want the accidents on the carpet, then block off a space to use for a couple days. During the process, I developed a strategy with a couple key Norwex products.

EnviroCloth: The EnviroCloth is perfect for cleaning up accidents on the floor, wiping off the toilet (since your little man is still working on his aim!), or wiping out the little potty after use. It is very absorbent and reusable. Just rinse it out, hang it up to dry, and keep it handy for next time. You will need to wash it more often than usual (every couple days), but it is much more cost effective than buying disinfectant wipes or having a stack of wet, dirty towels.

Get stains out naturally with the Norwex Carpet Stain BusterCarpet Stain Buster: You might end up with what I call “Poop-ageddon” a.k.a. poop in all the wrong places. If it gets on the carpet, spray some of the Carpet Stain Buster on it. The enzymes and microbes work naturally to get the stains out.

Mattress Cleaner: Even after your child is potty trained during the day, they will continue to have accidents in the night. Protect the mattress with some Pull-Ups or padded underwear and a mattress protector. If some does leak on to the mattress, spray some Mattress Cleaner to naturally break down the organic material.

Pet-to-Dry: Now is the time to build a good hand washing routine, so make it fun with a Pet-to-Dry. Kids love these cute little animals!

Norwex Pet to DryPotty training is hard work, but it is so worth it! Make sure you set aside time for you to de-stress! You will save yourself time, money, and the stress diapers put on the environment. Remember the hard work is just temporary; it will get easier as they learn!”

GET NATURALLY FRESH, CRISP LAUNDRY AT YOUR MAY NORWEX PARTY!

Get Everything you need for fresh laundry at your May Norwex party! Spring has sprung and summer is around the corner! May is the month to stock up on Norwex before a busy summer and get a few limited edition products for free with a qualifying party. I love the Collapsible Laundry Basket and the other laundry items up for grabs this month. They are natural and effective on tough stains. Let’s take a look at what you could earn after your May Norwex party!

At the $350 level, spruce up your kitchen cleaning routine with the Enviro Cloth, Kitchen Scrub Cloth, All-Purpose Kitchen Cloth, and the Sea Mist Kitchen Cloth. There is a cloth for every surface and situation in the kitchen. The rectangular Silicone Bakeware Lid is also a must-have for your kitchen, especially in the summer. This lid won’t get tangled like plastic wrap does when kids are running in and out of the house for a quick treat! Throw the Wrinkle Release Spray Mini in your purse so you can re-press your work clothes after getting out of the hot car.

At the $550 level, you will complete your kitchen linens stack with the Sea Mist Kitchen Towel. I love our Kitchen Cloth and Towel because they self-purify and don’t stink when the summer sun shines on them. When your Norwex Cloths do start to stink, use Ultra Power Plus so the cloths don’t get clogged up by the fillers and fragrance that other laundry detergents carry. Soak baseball uniforms in Ultra Power Plus to get tough dirt and grass stains out! The Washing Net is also handy for washing swimsuits in the summer. If you bump your party total up another $50 to $600, you will receive the Collapsible Laundry Basket, EnviroTowel and Scrubby Corner Cloth. The Laundry Basket is so convenient because it folds up to make more space in your laundry room. I tend to use my laundry baskets for more than transporting clothes. In the summer, it becomes a tote for our cabin supplies. Now once I get up there, I can collapse my laundry basket and hide it away.

The $750 level is also jackpot during the month of May! You will receive a Window Cloth, Fruit and Veggie Scrub Cloth, and limited edition small Superior Wet and Dry Mop Pads. These mop pads are a cute pink and gray. Finally, at the $1000 level, top off all your new kitchen supplies with the Dishwashing Liquid. I love this formula. It smells great and gets sudsy, but not greasy.

Which level are you shooting for? Let me know which one so I can help you plan your party for that level. Book your May Norwex party today!

Did you know that May is Celiac Awareness Month?

Maybe you’re wondering why we even need a month promoting Celiac Awareness, but as a wife to a husband with Celiac Disease and a friend to many others who live with it, I am very aware that more public education needs to be done to help people understand this disease. Many people still think that Celiac Disease is not that big of a deal, more of an excuse to be gluten-free rather than a disease. Some people even see gluten free as a fad; a way to ‘diet.’ It’s nothing of the sort. According to Celiac.org, “Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that can occur in genetically predisposed people where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine” (2016). This immediate damage can lead to other serious long term health issues. Currently, the only way to treat this disease is to eat a strictly gluten-free diet. With health issues like this on the line, this is no diet preference.

I really had no idea what “gluten free” or “Celiac” meant prior to 2008. That was the year that everything changed for my family. After years of trying to discover what was wrong with his health, my husband was diagnosed with Celiac disease. This was a enormous learning curve for us! Since he has a severe form of Celiac that also involves a skin reaction referred to as “DH,” we have to be careful of gluten that is hidden away in ingredients other than food. I can still remember crying in a doctor’s office at Mayo Clinic because I thought I had been SO careful to take care of my husband and she looked at me and said “What about your makeup? Is your lipstick gluten free?” What?!! Is my LIPSTICK gluten free? Who would have ever thought that makeup would have gluten in it! That opened my eyes to the fact that gluten can be hiding in soaps, shampoos, cosmetics, and even envelope glue. Crazy!

Since our family’s reorientation around my husband’s Celiac disease, I’ve become more aware of ways to help him and others live more at ease around me. Here are 3 tips to help you be a considerate friend or family member:

If you are going out, think about the restaurant ahead of time and check out the menu to make sure they have gluten-free options. There are lots of apps available for your smartphone that can tell you if a restaurant is gluten-free friendly. My favorite is Find Me Gluten Free, which also has a very helpful website! (If you’re in Minnesota, my favorite local restaurant is Mad Jacks in Vandais Heights, MN. They’ve catered many Norwex events for me and the manager has a passion for safe food for people suffering with a gluten allergy or intolerance.)
Consider a different style of cuisine. My go-to when friends came over was usually Italian or American food (think pasta, pizza, and grill food). Since our switch to gluten-free, I have modified things a bit. We make most things from scratch, and are very much focused on protein and vegetables. We’ve eliminated a lot of the really starchy foods that we grew up on (like the ever present Minnesota “hot dish” / casserole). It’s easy to make gluten free meals if you’re cooking from scratch with healthy ingredients.
Shop for gluten-free cleaning and personal care products. Did you know that people with Celiac Disease also need to use gluten-free personal care products? I was surprised when I found this out. Thankfully, THE ENTIRE NORWEX CATALOG IS GLUTEN FREE*!! Shopping for those with Celiac is much easier when you don’t have to read EVERY label. My favorite things to give my friends with Celiac are the Timeless Organic Shea Butter, Shower Gel, and the Makeup Removal Cloths. *excluding the Mediterranean Moisture Face and Neck Gel
Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for supporting those with Celiac during Celiac Awareness Month!

I can’t wait to celebrate Mother’s Day! Since I am a mother, I love to celebrate it all the more because I know what my own mother has done for me. She has shaped me in to the person I am today and I am so grateful! What does your mother mean to you? How will you be celebrating with you mom this year?

Have you started to think about what to get her? “May flowers” are always a cheerful gift, but maybe this year you’d like to do something unique. I’d love to get you started on some ideas that moms of all ages will love!

For the Spa Gal

Get your mom’s skin ready for summer since shorts and sandal season is almost here! Our Mediterranean Meditation Organics Olive Oil Salt Scrub is perfect for exfoliating away winter’s dry dead skin, leaving it smooth and rejuvenated. Give her the feel of the spa everyday with the Wrap it Up Set, including the Spa Wrap and Hair Turban.

For the Beauty Queen

Is your mom hooked on Norwex Naturally Timeless? Well, just in time for Mother’s Day, the new and improved Naturally Timeless products are now available! Surprise you mom with all her favorite skin care products in the Naturally Timeless Set. These products are free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, artificial colors and animal-derived ingredients. You know your mom looks at the back of every package!

For the Natural Chef and Gardener

I bet your mom’s gardens look beautiful right now! Does she grow flowers or produce or both? Feed her hobbies this year with a few Norwex products, and I’m sure you’ll reap some of the benefits too! For the flower gardener, pair your gift of flowers with a Bottle Brush to ease washing those vases. The Veggie and Fruit Scrub Cloth and the Fresh Produce Wash will be very useful when your mom’s vegetable garden gets going.

For the Mom-on-the-Go

I laughed at this quote the other day; I hope you do to! “A suburban mother’s role is to deliver children obstetrically once, and by car forever after” -Peter De Vries. Isn’t that the truth!! Summertime is the busiest time for moms trying to keep their children from boredom. This year, gift her with a to-go cup and gift card to her favorite coffee shop, along some Stainless Steel Straws (don’t forget the Straw Cleaning Brush!) so she can sip carefully in the car. Complete your gift by throwing in a summery printed Optic Scarf so she can wipe off those sunglasses that easily smudge.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you! Enjoy the day with a family you have held together!

My favorite from the $40 level is the Body Lotion. It smells so good, is natural and the packaging is biodegradable even though it feels similar to plastic. If you really want to go all out, any of the gift sets below are sure to be a hit. The essential oils have many different uses, but their aromatherapy sets the mood to relax or energize for whatever the occasion. I hope you have a wonderful time with the motherly women in your life!

Happy Shopping and Happy Mother’s Day!
