Why It’s Important to Breathe Clean

Are You Adding Chemicals to the Air?

As Norwex’s Chief Marketing Officer, I’m proud to lead a small but mighty product development and marketing team that’s focused on helping everyone everywhere reduce harmful household chemicals.

For example, I’m thrilled about how many families have started making their homes much healthier using our Safe Haven 5 Set. Did you know that with water alone, these five products can significantly reduce and replace all those cleaning chemicals stashed under your sink and/or in your cabinets? It’s true!

And today, I’m excited to share another recently launched product collection to help you take the logical next step in your chemical-reduction journey. Our new Breathe Clean Set can help you reduce harmful chemicals that find their way into your home from indoor air pollution, dust, chemical cleaners, fabric softeners, and dryer sheets. Here’s how it works...

Five Products, One Goal

While many of us assume we have only pure, fresh air in our homes, the truth is that air pollution may be up to five times worse indoors than out, according to the EPA. How can this be? Well, outside air pollution finds its own way in, but we also play a role by inadvertently spraying or off-gassing harmful chemicals through cleaning products or dryer sheets!

Fortunately, our Breathe Clean Set can help us all breathe a little easier. Here’s what you get:

• EnviroWand® with Two-Sided Sleeve
According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, asthma has been on the rise since the 1980s and among its common triggers are pollen, chemicals, and dust mites. But our EnviroWand, with its thick chenille Norwex Microfiber, picks up dust and the allergens in it and holds on tight, trapping them within the sleeve to prevent resettling. The bendable design helps you quickly tackle ceiling fans, bookshelves, and other hard-to-dust places, plus it’s a great alternative to single-use dusting pads and chemical-laden sprays.

• Fluff and Tumble Dryer Balls
Did you know that air emissions from dryer vents have been shown to contain chemicals from dryer sheets? According to EcoWatch.com, these expensive, single-use products are coated with volatile organic compounds that can cause respiratory irritation. Instead, rely on our Fluff and Tumble Dryer Balls made from 100% New Zealand wool to soften fabric, help reduce static and wrinkles plus reduce drying time—all without the use of harmful chemicals!

• Stainless Steel Cloth
Stainless steel can be anything but—smudges, drips, and dribbles seem to show up out of nowhere. But typical stainless steel cleaning aerosols may contain ingredients that pose a moderate to high risk, possibly leading to systemic/organ and respiratory effects according to the Environmental Working Group. Instead of a flammable, toxic “cleaner” for your stainless appliances, try our high-quality Norwex Microfiber Stainless Steel Cloth. With just this cloth and a little water, your stainless can shine like new. And the BacLock® antibacterial agent within the cloth allows it to self-purify as it dries.

• Bathroom Cleaner
Cleaning your bathroom is challenging enough without having to inhale irritating fumes from bleach and other harmful chemicals. With its safe, effective and biodegradable ingredients, our Bathroom Cleaner brings most bathroom surfaces* to a sparkling shine with no phosphates, corrosive acids or fumes. And because you can dilute it, a little goes a long way. *Not for use on polished marble, aluminum, galvanized zinc, tin or magnesium.

• Bathroom Scrub Mitt
Pair this dual-sided mitt with the Bathroom Cleaner and a little water to scrub up dirt and grime and then wipe them away. It safely removes soap scum and hard water deposits, getting tubs, showers, countertops, and toilets sparkling clean. It’s even proven to remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface with water alone when following proper care and use instructions.

I’m really excited that our Breathe Clean Set offers five amazing products to not only get home clean but to help you breathe a little easier knowing you’re continuing down the path of chemical reduction for you and your family.

Oh, and did I mention that Norwex is offering this collection at a discount? I love how we make the choice to breathe clean a real no-brainer!
