Netted Dish Cloth Review

Today I am going to give you a quick review of a simple little product that performed in a big way! I was introduced to Norwex about 6 months ago. As a mom who is contantly trying to find ways to make my home a safer enviroment for my family AND save money along the way I was intrigued at what Norwex had to offer. I myself searched reviews before purchasing their products so I figured I could help others by sharing my experiences, good or bad.
                                                    Norwex Netted Dish Cloth (sells for about $7 )

 Okay let's start with the product that the Dish Cloth will replace...the yucky kitchen sponge! I have always known the kitchen sponge was yucky and I always run it through the dishwasher as often as I remember to kill the bacteria. One article said, “One single bacteria cell can become more than 8 million cells in less than 24 hours! The number of bacteria it takes to make people sick can range from as few as 10 up to millions. And infections spread when germs are transferred from a contaminated item (say, your cutting board) to your hands to your body.” and many articles verify that the kitchen sponge is the #1 source of bacteria in your home.
 This entire cleaning bonanza started with one goal in mind and that was to rid the kitchen of fruit flies. I know that is gross but this time of year and fruit seem to be a great pairing for this annoying pest! So I had done everything I could think of to get rid of them including the regular cleaning of the kitchen. When I picked up my sponge I noticed a foul odor and decided to pitch it in the trash. Pulled out my new Netted Dish Cloth and started to clean. First I cleaned all my surfaces. On this granite counter it is hard to see all food and sticky mystery spots, the netted cloth caught at those areas and grabbed them with a few strokes the spots were gone. These are things I would have normally grabbed a SOS type pad to scrub up before so I was impressed. I also came across some grease build up behins the cooktop on the granite. I added some Blue Diamond (A Norwex product for bathtubs) and again the grease came up with minimal effort. Impressed again. I was attempting to find areas in this kitchen that already "looked clean" and around the faucet there was some minimal gunk...surprise, surprise the cloth fit into the areas between the faucet and lever and with some back and forth motion I had some hunks of gunk on my cloth. I had always struggled with that tight area so again was happy with this amazing little cloth!
 I also was able to get these above areas very thoroughly..that little ridge between the sink and granite had some grossness and it came right out! I took this little cloth down every cabinet (inisde all the grooves of woodworking) and over the water tray on the fridge door. All of this with just the cloth and water. The only time I used a product was for the grease build up and dishes. As you see below a certain child left a very unhealthy cereal (no judgement, my hubby loves them and refuses not to buy them!)in a bowl with no rinsing. If you have had this happen you know these cereals are nearly impossible to clean out hours later as they literally begin to turn into to a GLUE based substance!! Well I gave it a try and sure enough the Netted Dish cloth ended its long day in my kitchen with 2 swipes through the bowl and the cereal was gone...seriously no scrubbing!
Best part was I just threw the cloth in the next dishwasher load for cleanup! I do give my raving review of this product in all aspects of cleaning. The only negative thing I could find with the cloth was that it did not lather the dishsoap like I thought it would but we just switched dishsoap so I am still unsure if it was cloth or soap...I'll let you know!! By the way with a great apple cider vinegar/dawn dish soap trap and a Norwex cleaned kitchen I am happy to report the fruit flies are gone!!

Disclaimer: I reviewed this product for fun. I do not sell Norwex and I actually bought the product myself. I do know two great consultants who sell it and would be happy to answer any questions you have but I do not receive anything from these reviews.
