Cleaning with Norwex saves time for Penny Zimny
by Jennie Zeitler, Staff Writer
Penny Zimny never pictured herself getting away from using chemicals to clean her Royalton home, but once she started using Norwex products she observed the “no chemical” smell in her home.
“I was the ‘Queen of Chemicals’; I thought that the more cleaners I sprayed on, the cleaner something would be,” she said.
But she was truly hooked when she cleaned her east-facing patio windows.
“They always streaked, no matter what I used. When I used Norwex products, they were so clean, it didn’t even look like there was glass,” she said. “I remember my mom cleaning all the windows inside and out twice a year; it took hours. I cleaned all of mine in half an hour.”
Zimny first saw Norwex products being used when a consultant smeared Vaseline on a mirror and wiped it off completely.
“I was amazed,” she said. “I bought the basic package.”
Zimny praises the performance of the envirocloth, which will “literally clean anything. Each fiber is 1/200 of the size of a human hair,” she said. “Micro silver is woven in with the microfibers. Using only water, they remove everything from a surface.”
Using Norwex has saved Zimny up to 75 percent of her cleaning time.
“Everybody is busy, but Norwex has made a huge difference,” she said. “I do a lot less laundry than I did before. Dish cloths, wash cloths and cleaning cloths are just rinsed out and hung up.”
Zimny also notes that dirt and grease are trapped in the cleaning cloth’s microfibers, which does not come out and smear something else. There is no cross-contamination.
She also got used to a simply clean smell. It used to be that when her kids came home after she’d been cleaning, they would ask, “what’s that smell?”
“Most people associate clean with a lemon, pine or flowery scent,” Zimnys aid. “But clean doesn’t have a smell; clean is just clean.”
Since her husband and children have allergies, Zimny is pleased with a better environment for them to be in. She also noticed a difference for her family during cold and flu season.
“I used to walk around with cleaner and get everything we touched,” she said. “Now I just take the envirocloth and wipe down all those surfaces. It hardly takes any time.”
Norwex offers a variety of cleaning cloths along with some cleaning products. Products are generally sold at home parties.
“It’s about having friends and family over to learn how to save money, save time and save the environment,” she said.
