My Favorite Norwex Products and What I Wouldn't Buy Again (2022)

A review of my favorite Norwex Products that I have used for over 2 years now.

My Favorite Norwex Products and What I Wouldn't Buy Again (1)

Contents show

A few years ago, I was introduced to Norwex Cleaning Products. To be perfectly honest, it has changed my cleaning life making it simpler, faster, and surprisingly cleaner.

I have been asked a lot about our experiences since I wrote my Honest Norwex Review on their cloths. The short answer: Some products work like magic, and I will probably never use anything else, but there have also been a few let downs. So today, I thought I would share our top 5 best norwex products and why.

Where to Buy Norwex?

As with all my reviews, I am not affiliated with Norwex in any way. I just write these to help others decide, and share a bit of the love of what has worked for me to make my life simpler, cleaner, and with less work.

While I highly recommend purchasing from your own consultant, I do have a consultant with an online store if you don’t. You can shop with her here, and it is much cheaper than Amazon. (If you found this useful, you could use “Clean with Rachel” party for your order, and I might earn a bag of laundry detergent someday. Either way, I am happy to help!)

1. The Window Cloth

My Favorite Norwex Products and What I Wouldn't Buy Again (2)

If you could buy only one product to simplify cleaning your home, the Norwex Window Cloth would be the one! I have never found anything that removes streaks, waterspots, and fingerprints from windows with such ease. Even car windows in the sun – this cloth leaves no streaks! I use it to clean faucets, glass shower doors, and make vases sparkling clean.

Now I do want to add one thing. This cloth is designed to be used dry, after you have wiped/scrubbred the area with WATER via a sponge or cloth. The window cloth is like a polishing cloth. I had a friend who lamented that her window cloth wasn’t working. Turns out she was pre-washing her windows with a cleaner that was leaving a residue. It took a few cleanings with water to get through all that residue, and she realized that she needed to polish with the cloth until streak free.

2. The Rubber Brush

My Favorite Norwex Products and What I Wouldn't Buy Again (3)

Fact: If dog hair gets on your clothes or couches, this is the best cleaning item I have ever used – by miles.

Our home consists of dark floors and couches. But we have white shedding dog! It was so bad, I spent the extra $$$ on a rhoomba in the hopes of keeping up with the dog hair. While that helped, keeping the dog hair off the couches was a nightmare.

This rubber brush has worked miracles. It brushes the hair away pretty easily. In fact, much, MUCH easier than all of our vacuum attachments. Cleaning the sofa is still a fairly large job, but after using the rubber brush, it probably took a ⅓ of the time it used to.

But that’s not all! This brush is great for wool coats, cleaning dirt off floor mops, crumbs on car seats, the corners of carpeted stairs or bath mats that can’t be vacuumed, and tons of other places. Check it out! You won’t regret it if you have pets!

Check out this substitute that works exactly the same for cheaper.

3. Dusting Mitt

My Favorite Norwex Products and What I Wouldn't Buy Again (4)

Admittedly, dusting is not something that I find exciting, but I do love this little dusting mitt, even though I could see some improvements.

I used to use swiffer and I shudder to think of all the money I wasted. This mitt does a much better job of grabbing even the finest dust with ease. And it really sticks to the microfiber until wash day.I also love the kid sized mitt, because I just hand it off to my son and he actually likes dusting!

However, I do have one gripe about it. The edging around the mitt can make it a bit more difficult to get into corners and tight spaces (like under electronics). Even with that, I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

4. Laundry Detergent

People loooooove this laundry detergent! I have not yet met anyone who isn’t a huge fan. While it can seem pricey, I only use about 1 tablespoon for an extra large load, so a little goes a very long way.

Also, it works! I am here to say that the clothes are noticeably cleaner, and my husband’s white shirts are lasting much longer without armpit yellowing (gross, I know, but everyone sweats.)

Also, if you are health conscious or sensitive to dyes and perfumes, this laundry detergent has no perfumes, artificial brighteners, sulfates, phosphates, or fillers. No yucky stuff!

I have now used this in both my old conventional washer/dryer set and a new high efficiency set. I have never had any problems with either and about the same results, although I have never used anything else in the high-efficiency set.

Pro secret: I order 6 bags at a time to save on shipping. That should last me about 7 months, and we do 5-7 full sized loads each week.

5. Envirocloth

My Favorite Norwex Products and What I Wouldn't Buy Again (6)

This little wiping towel is so unassuming. It’s just a towel, right? If you haven’t read my full review of the norwex towels, I go in depth why I like it so much.

I clean every surface of the bathroom, kitchen, small messes- almost everything! No more carrying a bunch of cleaners around to do the house. However, my favorite aspect of these towels is that they don’t get that dirty towel smell that my old kitchen rags used to!

What about other Norwex Proucts?

To be honest, it was very difficult to whittle down the list to my Top 5, because there are so many great Norwex products and uses that I have found. So here are my honorable mentions, which are honestly fabulous.

Honorable Mentions

  • Descaler – Descalers are irritating, odorous, caustic products. However, Norwex descaler actually works great and it doesn’t have horrible fumes. My parents live on a limestone shelf with well water, which means they have the worst case of hard water possible and the scale is ridiculous. My mom LOVES this stuff.
  • Timeless Rescue Gel– Although Norwex is primarily for cleaning, this little gem is awesome. It works very well on tired muscles like shoulders, but I thought the “calming effect” it had on me was more a placebo thing until I heard other friends say the same thing. A friend of mine uses it all the time to help with her arthritic knee, when nothing else had worked. It does have a heavy scent of menthol though.
  • Enviroscrub cloths – Ever have stuck-on, gooey messes? I love this scrubby cloth for getting gooey, dried messes off the floor, countertops, etc. I usually take it around with the mop to get those spots if needed. It doesn’t scratch either (although I don’t use it on polished chrome or something like that).

What I Wouldn’t Buy Again

As you can see, there are quite a few items I love and recommend. However, truth be told, there are a few Norwex products that I didn’t find as useful for the price. While I wouldn’t call anything I have purchased bad, I just didn’t find the value for the price or I found cheaper alternatives.

  • Kitchen towels – Other than drying dishes, I couldn’t find any use for them that the envirocloth wasn’t better at. The kitchen towels are far too expensive to only be used for drying dishes.
  • Facial / Baby Towels– These towels were great for about a month. I felt like my oily skin was cleaner and fresher. I also have friends who swear their acne is better. However, the cloths attracted dirt and scratchy dust. I washed them with my other norwex items, and they picked up crud and WOULD NOT LET GO. The cloths became quickly unusable because they were scratchy.
  • The Dryer Balls – Yes, dryer sheets are awful and full of chemicals, but neither norwex dryer ball type is perfect either. First, I am convinced you can buy the plastic dryer balls at Walmart for half price. The wool balls are a bit more mixed in review. People rave that they have no chemicals, no perfumes, and do fluff the clothes a bit. Some are convinced they dry clothes faster and others say not really. My issue is that static is barely reduced, if at all. (My new efficiency set produces no static, but my first set had some static problems). And I can get highly rated Wool Dryer Balls here for half the cost.
  • Optic Cloth – Although it is high quality, I use these less expensive cloths here for cleaning lenses, screens, and such that work just as well for half the price per cloth.
