The Dreaded "D" Word - Dust


For years I cleaned my home as most people do. I went to the store and bought whatever cleaning products were on sale or looked to be popular. I admit advertising played a large part in what I chose as well as the familiarity of items I grew up with. When I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition I started doing my homework to figure out what I did to cause my condition. I uncovered the dangers of the chemicals in the cleaning products I was using and their link to autoimmunity. A friend introduced me to Norwex - a company that sells cleaning microfiber cloths and products which allow you to radically reduce chemicals in your home and do 90% of your cleaning with just water. I was skeptical but decided to try a few items. After one use, I was hooked! I cleaned all of my windows that day, signed up to be a consultant, gave away my old cleaning supplies, and never looked back. When possible, I love loaning out my Norwex items for people to try because the proof is in the use. Someone can tell you all day long how great Norwex is, but until you see it for yourself, you will probably be as leery as I was.


If you have been through any kind of remodel in your home, you know how hard it can be to stay on top of the DUST. It is a never-ending task. We covered the kitchen doorways in plastic, put tarps over our furniture, closed bedroom doors, and hoped for the best. Despite my best effort, at the end of every day I could write my name on all the furniture. I wasn’t expecting my house to be spotless during the remodel, but since some of us are sensitive to dust and dust can often contain chemicals ranging from phthalates to pesticides, as well as countless other pollutants, I have been doing my best to keep it at bay.


Thank goodness for my Norwex products. The dusting mitt and Enviro Wand saved the day. The dusting mitt can remove 99% of bacteria from a surface. It has a higher pile than most dusting cloths to hold more dust and is statically charged to attract even the smallest particles. There is no need to use any spray polishes which could contain harsh chemicals and attract dust after you use them. The Enviro Wand is great for those hard to reach places (I’m 5' 2" so that’s a lot of my house) and has a chenille microfiber on one side and Norwex microfiber on the other for additional cleaning options. These two items make dusting my home each day quick and painless. While my house is in no way dust free right now, I know I have done my best to reduce our exposure to it and cut down on symptoms associated with dust exposure.
