Every single day, it takes about 51,000 trees and 60 billion gallons of water to support North America’s paper towel habit alone!! Wow. Sit back and think about that statement for awhile and then think about your paper towel usage in your household. Isn’t that something you can improve on? Every step, no matter how small, can have big impacts on the world.
I was so excited when Norwex launched their new products at the beginning of the month. There was one thing I wanted more than anything: the Counter Cloths! And there’s a bonus…for a limited time you can order 6 cloths with a handy, house-shaped box. Besides the obvious environmental effects, why on earth would I be this excited about cleaning products?
As the wife and mother of the household, I always find myself trying to save the family money, leave a better earth for my offspring, and trying to keep the house clean. Did you know that your family can save $1,000 over five years just by eliminating your paper towel usage?? Check out this estimate: http://www.growingagreenfamily.com/ditch-paper-towels-and-save-1000-in-five-years/. It’s so easy to grab a paper towel for messes in the home, so Norwex brilliantly creates their reusable version: Counter Cloths. Here’s just a couple key features:
- Removes 99% of bacteria from surface using ONLY water
- Each cloth is the size of half a sheet of paper towel
- Made from recycled plastic bottles
- Super absorbent
- Uses BacLock* Technology….a micro silver antibacterial agent that stops the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria in 24 hours so the cloths are ready to be used again!
- Handy box keeps the cloths easily accessible and provides a place to let them dry
- Fits into any decor style (but I love it even more in my farmhouse theme).
- Can also be used to dry hands in bathroom
In just a couple days of owning these, they have already proven beyond useful!! My husband normally isn’t too geeked about new cleaning cloths, but these are so easy to use, even he can’t keep his hands off them. Does it sound too good to be true? Here’s the results in just a couple pictures where we have used the Counter Cloths to help clean up:Cleaning up after cookiesCleaning the little crevices of the instant potMy handsome husband ❤️ cleaning up after dinner ❤️❤️Wiping down the table after a juicy grapefruit and messy toddler
