I had to laugh when a good friend asked me to explain why we sometimes refer to the Norwex Enviro Cloth and Window Cloth as the “Bert and Ernie Cloths”. It brought me back to those early parties 3 short years ago when I was just getting started in my Norwex business in Cedar Rapids, Iowa! Would you like to hear “the rest of the story”? ;0)
In those early days, when our customers were brand-new to Norwex, they would occasionally ask “What ONE cloth should I get?” And well, we all know, that’s practically a swear word in Norwex, because the Enviro/Window cloth DUO (the “Basic Package”) work best TOGETHER. These two cloths are “Best Friends”- they’re always together, and they roll best that way!
They could be called a multitude of dynamic duos… but being mom of young little guys, we had some Sesame Street Bert & Ernie books, and it seemed like a great fit… and bottom line is that my customers quickly adopted it and started referring to “the Bert & Ernie cloths”…and so a legend was born.
Not only are Bert & Ernie great buddies, but Bert is the heavy-duty cleaner of the pair! He’s organized, collects things (i.e. bottle caps) and is very precise. That’s kind of like our Enviro cloth. It is our heavy-duty cleaner (with just WATER, might I add!!) and it collects everything from the surface, so that we no longer need to look to chemicals for cleaning!!
Ernie on the other hand? Well, he’s not quite so organized and *definitely* not a deep-cleaning type of guy, but he LOVES to get the credit! We had a Sesame Street book where Bert spends all day Spring Cleaning, Ernie proves he’s not a detail-sort-of-guy when it comes to cleaning, but in the end, Ernie takes all the credit for Spring Cleaning. That’s sort of like the amazing Norwex Window Cloth! The damp Enviro first thoroughly CLEANS the surface, then the Window Cloth (“Ernie”) dries it to a streak-free shine, and takes the glory for streak-free windows and mirrors!! They are indeed a Dynamic Duo!!
