I just interviewed a towel

Saturday, February 18, 2012


I would like to introduce my guest this evening, this is EnviroCloth, although he likes to go by E.C. 

Jen: Hi, E.C. thanks for stopping by! I've received a few questions about you after becoming a Norwex Independent Consultant. Would you mind answering a question or two?

E.C.: You bet! Where would you like to start?

It removes bacteria, with only water. So that means it is loaded or coated with some sort of chemical, right? Nope! The microfiber is a blend of polyester & polyamide and is 1/100th the size of a strand of human hair. There is also silver woven in, but absolutely no chemicals or additives.

How does it clean? When combined with the Norwex knitting process, it becomes highly effective at attracting and holding dirt and grime. You can also feel the microfiber grabbing at the surface as you wipe. 

Why is it considered Antibacterial? The antibacterial agent is embedded inside tiny microfibers the size of 0.3 denier or smaller. All Norwex Antibac microfiber cloths & wet mops contain this environmentally-friendly, Silver Technology that has been approved by both the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  

How does the silver work? Silver interrupts a cell's ability to form chemical bonds essential to its survival. Bacteria, viruses and fungi need the bonds for their oxygen metabolism. Essentially, the organism suffocates and dies. 

How do you know it is working? Smell the towel. Smell it after you've used it for 2 days, a week, 2 weeks. I think the BEST test, is use another non-antibac towel the same way you use the antibac towel.  

How long will it last? All Norwex microfiber products have a full 2 year satisfaction guarantee. This means that if in that period of time your Norwex Antibac microfiber cloth degrades in some way with normal use and proper care, Norwex will replace it

Can I wash and dry it normally? To save the environment, and reduce the use of detergents, we suggest that slightly dirty cloths be hand washed in warm water with any brand dish or laundry soap (do not use hand soap, as it contains oil). Rinse well, and air dry. For more soiled-looking cloths (like when I used my cloth to clean the inside of my NASTY microwave), simply wash in any temperature cycle with any detergent in the washing machine, and ONLY with lint-free laundry (no terry towels). Then dry in a dryer with temperatures up to 90-degrees or simply air. DO NOT USE bleach, abrasive solutions, fabric softener or dryer softener sheets, these destroy the products ability to clean. DO NOT iron, DO NOT USE with paints or inks. If fabric softener or chemicals were used with the cloths, or they are heavily soiled, boil in water on stovetop for 15 minutes or place wet cloth within a plastic bag and microwave on high for 1 minute - this disinfects and allows the microfibers to swell and release the substances. 

Jen: Thanks EnviroCloth. It was so nice getting to know you better!
