How do I wash my Norwex cloths?
I want you to love your Norwex cloths for many years to come! That means that how you care for them is important! You’ll be happiest with your cloths if you follow these simple Norwex washing instructions.
Wash them in the washer, dry them in the dryer, and follow these 3 simple rules:
1) No fabric softener or dryer sheets.
2) No bleach.
3) No linty loads.
A hot water wash with eco-friendly detergent is great! Norwex laundry detergent is the best!
How do I deep clean my Norwex cloths?
The easiest and most effective way is to Deep Clean your Norwex is to use the Norwex Microfiber Cleaner Laundry Booster for a 30-60 minute soak! This stuff is incredible at removing build-up from your Norwex cloths!
- Fill a sink or large bowl with hot water and add a scoop of the Microfiber Cleaner Laundry Booster.
- Stir to dissolve.
- Add cloths/ mop pads/ Norwex microfiber.
- Let soak 30-60 minutes.
- Launder as usual.
*If you have hard water that has built up on your Norwex cloths, you will want to do this deep clean in DISTILLED WATER instead of tap water.
A second way to deep clean Norwex microfiber is to bring a large pot of water to boiling (again, distilled water is ideal if your tap water has high mineral content). Remove the kettle from heat. Add a scoop of the Norwex Powder Laundry Detergent and stir until dissolved. Add cloths and let soak 60 minutes. Rinse well and launder as usual.
How do I know when to deep clean my Norwex cloths?
Norwex Deep Cleaning should only be necessary about every 6-12 months. You will know your cloths need a deep clean if they are not as soft, have acquired an odor (meaning the BacLock microsilver has gotten coated and isn’t able to do it’s job as effectively), or are not cleaning as effectively. See Norwex Deep Clean Method recommendations above.
If you have hard water, you may notice over time that your cloths are not as absorbent. This is because the minerals from your water are literally coating those tiny little fibers. Some of my customers have found a soak in white vinegar after using the Microfiber Cleaner to be helpful for this hard water build-up.
(BONUS HARD WATER TIP: This is a bit random here, but speaking of hard water buildup, if you have water with a lot of mineral content, you will probably LOVE the Norwex Descaler for cleaning shower doors, around faucets, etc. Just be sure to not use it on natural stone surfaces since it’s job is to break down mineral content (which is what natural stone is made up of!)) 🙂
