The Cleaning Blog

Most Thursday nights my friend Kim and I go for a dog walk.

We talk about a lot of things - people, world events, kids etc.

but we DON'T EVER talk about housework.



I mean

Never.



So I was quite shocked when she told me about a new

chemical free


way of cleaning that she is using.


She said her friend Angie is selling it from her home.

I know Angie slightly because I taught her son

so I called her and made an appointment.


You know -


 save the environment and all that.


Angie came over yesterday.

This is what happened:




My stove top.

 
I have been trying so hard to keep the black top nice.

Bought the recommended cleaner and the special sponge.

I was surprised at the difference when

 Angie cleaned the front burner on the right.

The one on the left isn't been done yet.




Here's the close up.

I decided to clean the left burner.

First  I tried the recommended cleaner but as usual I couldn't get all of the marks off.

Then I tried Angie's product.




Check out the burner on the left after I had finished!

 Angie is cleaning my kettle while I take a picture of my beautiful stove.



In the past I've had to use magic eraser to remove tea stains from my cups

but here I am removing the stains with only a cloth. 

No chemical cleanser!


There's a scientific reason for this, but I'm not a scientist

and who the frig cares anyway. 

It works and it's safe.






My sink with just a few swipes of the cloth.


And here is Angie doing my kitchen window

without vinegar and newspaper which is my preferred window/mirror cleaner.

 
Not a streak and not an iota of dirt.

Now I have to tell you I am impressed.

The only thing I  didn't like was that although the products originated in Norway,

they are now made in


SURPRISE


China.


Anyway, the company is called

Norwex  

 so if you would like to have a few less

chemicals in your life

check them out at






PS  Remember the tire blog? 

I promised I would never blog about tires again.

Well I never have.

And now I give you my solemn word that

I will never blog about house cleaning again!

That's amazing! You'll have to wear sunglasses inside now so you don't get blinded by the sun bouncing off your clean stove-top, windows, etc. Maybe you can borrow Secnarf's shades, eh?

Jane said...

Looks fantastic, but I'm not completely convinced - I need Angie to come over and clean my entire house before I can decide... haha!! I see Flynn's back in his favourite spot :)

Jane said...

I now realize that I actually have three of these cloths - two are for your body, one for general cleaning. My daughter gave them to me a while back and I stuck them in a drawer. Now maybe I should try them out :)

You guys are so funny, but yes Jane you should try them. I ordered the dish cloths too but that is going to be a real psychological challenge for me to wash my dishes without using soap!

Sounds very interesting, Francie. You had me at the stove top. I used to have a stove like that before we moved here and could never keep it clean that way. It used to drive me batty. Unlike Jane, I did not receive cloths like these from either of my daughters, so since Angie doesn't need to go to Jane's house, perhaps she can come over and put on a demonstration for me -- throughout the entire house. That would be nice :)

We have something very similar called E-cloths. I was sceptical, but very pleasantly surprised. They work wonders on my stainless steel hob and oven.

Geez, no more tires, no more cleaning --- At this rate, pretty soon you'll run out of things to blog about.
