30 Days of the Norwex Enviro Cloth – DAY 22 – THE KITCHEN SINK

UPDATE: March 23, 2012

After much consideration – and months of in-home testing and scrutinizing – I am convinced that e-cloth® offers a product that is equal in quality and performance to Norwex but is more reasonably priced. As such, I have resigned as a Norwex Consultant. I still stand behind my review of the Norwex Enviro Cloth, but the e-cloth® General Purpose Cloth (and the new e-cloth® Antibacterial Cloth) performs just as well – and is of equally high quality – at a fraction of the price.

Washing my kitchen sink was never high on my list of priorities. I mean, it kinda gets washed with the dishes, doesn’t it? Except for that greasy ring that the dish soap leaves behind and all that gunk at the bottom.

Bringing out the cleanser always seemed like such a chore. Not to mention the manic rinsing I did afterwards to make sure I got all the cleanser residue out of the sink before I washed my dishes again.

This is another reason I really like the Enviro Cloth. Wipe the sink, faucet and knobs with a wet Enviro Cloth and I’m done. Less than a minute. It picks up all the grease and grime, not to mention any bacteria.

It’s so easy that I usually do it once a day. Tell me the truth, how often do you clean your kitchen sink?

I usually wipe the sink at the end of the day, after I’ve done the counter, table, stove, etc. Afterwards I give it a quick rinse in hot water with a drop of dish soap. Ready for the next day.

    I recently hosted a Norwex party and my consultant said not to use anitbacterial dish soap. Would you agree to not use that, even if it’s just a 1/2 teaspoon to clean it at the end of the day?


    • Hi Jessica – I’m just not a big fan of antibacterial soap of any sort so I’d avoid it all together. But that aside, if you’ve just been doing everyday cleaning you can just rinse your cloth in hot water (agitate the water as much as possible) and that alone will get rid of most of any bacteria left in your cloth. If you’ve been cleaning greasy spots (like stovetops) or really dirty spots (like floors or spills), you’ll likely want to add a bit of dish soap to the water and then rinse again with no soap. There is no need for antibacterial detergent. If you’ve been cleaning areas of high bacteria counts like toilets or raw meat juices, rinse the cloth in hot water and then set it aside to be laundered.

      I’m not sure about Norwex cloths, but e-cloths have been proven to release over 99% of bacteria when rinsed in warm water.
