Norwex mechanical cleaning compared to chemical cleaning, with raw chicken, test swabs and a black light!
Wanting to know how Norwex compares to disinfectant wipes or other typical cleaners? Check out this test that I recently did right in my own kitchen! Honestly, I was BLOWN AWAY by how much residue and “stuff” the disinfectant wipes left behind… and I question how truly clean they leave the surface since most people do not read the instructions or use them properly! And to see what the disinfectant wipe transfers from surface to surface was also quite a shock to me!!! I am passionate about letting people know there is an easier, healthier way to clean… with Norwex and JUST WATER! Check out this quick video to see the comparison!
How Norwex cleans compared to sanitizing wipes:
There are 3 main ways to clean.
- Thermal Cleaning
Think steam cleaners. The goal of this method is to utilize steam or heat to KILL what’s on the surface. The good thing is that it’s quite effective and it does not use toxic chemicals. The downside is that it tends to leave the “remains” and a residue behind. Know what I’m saying? If you’ve used a steam cleaner, you may notice that even though it is just water, it still tends to leave behind a bit of a residue feel. Also, for thermal cleaning, extra electricity and time are needed. Plug it in, fill it up, let it warm up.
- Chemical Cleaning
This is how most of us have been trained to clean. More and more studies are confirming the potential harm of using toxic chemicals in our home. So many of these ingredients have now been linked to various health conditions. The goal of chemical cleaning is to KILL everything on the surface (IF used properly). The problem with this method is that it leaves behind the chemical residue (for us to soak into our skin and breathe into our lungs during our daily living) and it also leaves behind the “dead bodies” of whatever the chemical [hopefully] killed. EWWWW.
- Mechanical Cleaning
This is how we clean with Norwex BacLock Microfiber!! Instead of “killing” everything on the surface (and leaving behind residue and “remains”), we MECHANICALLY REMOVE dirt, grime, grease, and up to 99% of bacteria from the surface, using just water and following proper care & use instructions! Cleaning with Norwex is EASY, EFFECTIVE, AFFORDABLE and FAST. Simply wet your Norwex cloth with water, wring it out tightly and wipe down virtually every surface in your home. You will quickly discover that although TRUE CLEAN shouldn’t have a smell, it definitely has a FEEL!!! You will FEEL the difference. The Norwex cloths have saved me so much TIME and MONEY (I love that I don’t need to walk down the smelly cleaner aisle or buy paper towels in BULK anymore!)! Being very passionate about protecting our health, I LOVE that there is no longer cleaning chemical residue on my surfaces and in the air of our home. When I started Norwex, I had minimal awareness about our ability to make choices to take better care of our Earth, but the silver lining of cleaning with Norwex and water has been that we are no longer flushing potentially harmful chemicals back into our precious water supply, loading the landfills with more plastic, and requiring a ridiculous number of trees to be cut down to support our crazy paper towel habit! I also love that I can use the Norwex cloth to wipe down multiple surfaces before rinsing it out, without the fear of transferring “stuff” from surface to surface.
I use this analogy to explain chemical vs. mechanical cleaning. Let’s say you have a weed in your front lawn. You’ve got a couple of options.
- You can go get the weed spray and spray it and hopefully, if you used enough and it set long enough, you’ll have a dead weed in your lawn. (This is a similar approach to using chemicals to clean- the hope that you kill what’s there, but ultimately having a “dead weed” still remaining.)
- Or you can reach down and pluck the weed, completely removing it. Simple as that. No chemical residue soaking into our soil and water supply and no dead weed left behind. That’s similar to cleaning mechanically with Norwex! The BacLock Norwex microfiber REMOVES from the surface, leaving a TRULY CLEAN, residue-free surface!
