I started using Norwex because I LOVED that I could clean in a safe and healthy way and replace the toxic chemical cleaners that I had been using. Besides being safer, eliminating all of these cleaning products had another benefit: less bottles and products to store and clutter up my cupboards! It really simplified my cleaning routine and my LIFE.
If you are embracing a minimalist lifestyle or just looking for a simple, practical cleaning routine, here are some of my favorite sustainable cleaning supplies that eliminate toxins, waste and can clean and disinfect with JUST water:
This is my go-to. My multi-purpose, everything cleaner. This microfiber cloth can be used wet or dry- first use it dry to dust, then get it wet to wipe things down. A superior quality microfiber, it is super thick and can pick up anything from dust to dirt to oils. The best part: it has the tested ability to remove up to 99% of bacteria with only water. The BacLock™ technology means there is micro silver in the wet cloth self-cleanses within 24 hours to reduce mold and odor on the cloth. I have thrown out all those bottles of toxic disinfectant cleaning solutions, this cloth is all I need.
This cloth is the EnviroCloth®’s best friend. It is great for cleaning, glass, windows, mirrors – anywhere you are looking for a sparkly shine, free of streaks. Cleaning my windows is incredibly easy and gets done more than ever before! I just wipe off the dirt and oils (or crayon or food) with my EnviroCloth®, then follow up with the Window Cloth. Additionally, I have been able to dump my toxic window cleaning solutions!
I could stop there and clean a LOT of my home with just these two products. However, adding a few more tools makes my cleaning routine easier while still keeping things simple and lean:
EnviroWand with Two-Sided Sleeve and Dusting Mitt
I don’t have to buy dusting pads or sprays anymore with these dusting tools. I wear the Dusting Mitt for quick easy dusting and getting in small places. I have found it is great for screens and blinds! The EnviroWand is perfect for dusting the tops of cupboards, ceiling fans, window sills and picture frames. These both pick up the dust instead of spreading it around, and I am always amazed at just how much dust they pick up!
I replaced my broom, dust pan, mop and chemical-laden floor cleaners with the Norwex mop system. Just one handle, one base, two interchangeable mop pads and water are all I need to keep my floors clean and SAFE!
This brush is excellent for brushing dirt and debris off mop pads, the dusting mitt and the EnviroWand. It also works really well for brushing pet fur, lint and more off uphostery, textiles and carpet. This brush has worked wonders on my car upholstery and carpets!
Fluff and Tumble balls
I am so happy that I don’t need to purchase or STORE fabric softeners or fabric sheets anymore, especially after finding out how many toxic chemicals are in those products. These wool dryer balls are all I need, and I just leave them in my dryer. Not only do they naturally soften fabric, they cut drying time.
Ultra Power Plus Laundry Detergent
This powder packs a punch and is all I need in my laundry room. This highly concentrated, superior stain-fighting powder contains biodegradable surfactants and dissolves grease and grime. This also works great diluted in a spray bottle for use on clothing stains and carpet stains, grout stains or just as an all-purpose cleaner. I’ve tossed out the big bulky detergent dispensers and everything that came along with them, from phosphates and sulfates to dyes and fillers.

BONUS: Aluminum Spray Bottle & Essential Oils
If you think you will miss the smell of “clean” that you get from chemical cleaning solutions, just add a spray bottle and essential oils to your cleaning supplies. Drop 4-5 drops of essential oil in the spray bottle, fill with water and use in conjunction with the microfiber or just spray it in the air as an air freshener. Add 2-3 drops of essential oil to the Fluff and Tumble dryer balls with a load of laundry for a fresh scent.
