PREAMBLE TO KATE’S REVIEW OF THE NORWEX TILE MOP PAD
First off, I’ve GOT to introduce you to our new dog, Ruger. He has adopted the Norwex tile mop pad as his own. Where the mop pad goes, Ruger goes. It’s a strange relationship.
Ruger is a 1-year old rescue that took the long trip up to Canada from Texas. He doesn’t bark often, but when he does, he has an accent. Hardy har! It’s been 3 years since the 2nd of our two Labrador Retrievers died and I’ve been missing the dog-panionship.
My old dogs, Riley and Roxy, were food-obsessed. If my eyes went in the direction of the fruit bowl, Riley started drooling. If we ordered pizza, Roxy started drooling the second we we started discussing toppings. And like clockwork, both dogs started drooling an hour before their dinner every day. There was drool all over our house and do you know what dog drool dries like? Glue! It dries like GLUE! It leaves a solid streak across the floor that is not easily wiped up.
Now you’re asking: “Kate, why are you talking about your OLD dogs when you’ve got that amazingly cute, frisky-looking NEW dog?“
Well… I bring up the old dogs because many moons ago, I was on my hands and knees, using the e-cloth Stainless Steel cloth (or it might have been the Range and Stovetop cloth – I can’t remember) to wipe up some day(s!)-old drool from our tile floor around the dogs’ food bowls. I was so impressed with how well the little scrubby strips in that cloth removed the drool that I stopped mid-job and emailed the head of e-cloth® in the US. I said “you’ve GOT to make a mop pad like this!“
Sadly e-cloth® didn’t go with the idea.
Which brings me to the Norwex Tile Mop Pad.
WHAT IS THE NORWEX TILE MOP PAD?
The Tile Mop Pad is a high-quality microfibre pad that has strips of nylon fibres woven into it. The nylon fibres have a stiff, slightly bristly – but NOT abrasive – feel to them and they are very similar to the scrubby strips in the e-cloth® Stainless Steel and Range & Stovetop cloths.
WHAT IS SIMILAR BETWEEN THE NORWEX TILE MOP PAD AND WET MOP PAD?
Overall the pads are very similar:
- Both the Tile Mop and Wet Mop Pads are meant to be used damp.
- The Tile and Wet pads will both “remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface when following the proper care and use instructions” (quoted from the Norwex website)
- The pads are the same size although they appear different in this picture. My Wet Mop Pad (the blue one) is an old version and the edges were finished with a serger. At some point, Norwex changed the finishing and all new pads – like my tile mop pad – have piping along the edges. The piping adds a bit of length.
- Both pads attach to the Norwex mop base with velcro.
- Both pads attach to the e-cloth® mop (more on that later, but remember this fact because it will save you a lot of money).
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE NORWEX TILE MOP PAD AND WET MOP PAD?
There are 2 main differences between the Norwex Tile Mop and Wet Mop Pads:
- The tile mop pad does not contain the BacLock® agent (AKA: silver. Previously known as “anitbac” but Norwex got a trademark on the word BacLock). Some of you may feel this is a deal-breaker, but if you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know that in my opinion, the BacLock/anitbac feature is over-rated. If you’re confused – as many are – here is my post on how the BacLock/anitbac/silver works and another post detailing why I don’t think high quality microfibre cloths like Norwex and e-cloth® don’t need silver.
- The Tile Mop Pad has nylon strips of scrubbers (those are the blue lines in the pad). The Wet Mop Pad does not.
- The Tile Mop Pad is cheaper than the Wet Pad.
KATE’S HOME TEST OF THE NORWEX TILE MOP PAD
I’ve had the Norwex Tile Mop Pad for a couple of weeks now and put it to a number of “tests”. My two boys were very happy to help me out by spilling more than a few things (yogurt, milk, dinner, toothpaste, etc.) and then doing a half-a$$ job of wiping it up. Little surprise “tile pad tests” all over the house.
I hate to say this because I’m afraid to jinx it but… Sadly(?) the new dog, Ruger, is not a drooler, so I have had no dried-up drool messes to challenge the tile pad with.
