Spring Cleaning with Norwex Week One-
Day 1: There is nothing better than clean windows in the spring!
Supplies Needed: Wet Norwex EnviroCloth, Dry Norwex Window Cloth (or two if you have a lot of windows), and a damp Norwex Dusting Mitt.
Estimated Time: This will be a 10 – 20 minute project but will depend on the size of your home and the amount of windows you have.
Wipe windows with your wet Norwex EnviroCloth and dry with a Norwex Window Cloth. It is best to do one window at a time to get that streak-free dry. You may need to toss switch out your Window Cloth for a dry one if you have a lot of windows. Use a damp Norwex Dusting Mitt on each side of the screen to remove dirt, grime and pollen.
Day 2: Time to clean out that fridge!
Supplies Needed: Trash bag, Norwex Enviro Cloth, Cleaning Paste as needed.
Estimated Time: 15 minutes
Toss those out of date and unknown items hanging out in the back of the fridge. Empty everything out and wipe down all the drawers and shelves with a damp EnviroCloth. If you have some tough spots, grab your Cleaning Paste and scrub away. Bonus- If you have an extra few minutes, use your damp EnviroCloth to clean the outside of the fridge.
Day 3: The Kitchen Sink
Supplies Needed: EnviroCloth and Cleaning Paste. You may need a SpiriSponge if you have have a lot of really tough stains.
Estimated Time: 5 minutes
Cleaning out the sink is not something a lot of people do weekly, but it can get gross fast! Use a damp EnviroCloth and your Cleaning Paste and get scrubbing. If you have some tougher spots you may need to use a wet SpiriSponge with your cleaning paste. If you have a stainless steel sink you may not realize how dirty your sink really is, but you will start to see it on your EnviroCloth as you clean!
Day 4: Time to Clean that Stove Top!
Supplies Needed: Kitchen Cloth, SpiriSponge, Cleaning Paste, and a Window Cloth
Estimated Time: 10 minutes
Start by cleaning the stovetop with your damp Kitchen Cloth. Next use your SpiriSponge and Cleaning Paste to tackle the tough stuck on mess. Lastly, use your Window Cloth to dry your stovetop. Want to see this in action? You can see my how-to video here: How To Clean Your Stove Top with Norwex
Day 5: Clean That Oven!
Supplies Needed: Norwex Oven and Grill Cleaner, Wet EnviroCloth, and a Spirinette
Estimated Time: 20 minutes
Start by heating your oven to 100 degrees, then turn it off. Spray the Norwex Oven and Grill Cleaner on the door, ceiling and walls. Wait 10 minutes then wipe with a wet EnviroCloth. For any baked on grime, use a Norwex Spirinett.
Day 6: The Microwave
Supplies Needed: EnviroCloth, Window Cloth and Lemon (optional).
Estimated Time: 10 minutes
When is the last time your microwave has had a good deep cleaning? This first step with the lemon is not a must do, but if you like cleaning shortcuts, you will love this! Cut a lemon in half and stick it in a bowl of water and microwave for 4 minutes. The steam from the lemon water will help loosen anything that is really stuck on. Next, take out the glass plate and run it under some warm water. Use a little soap and your dish cloth to get it clean. Use your Window Cloth to dry. Next, use your wet EnviroCloth (you can dip it in the hot lemon water) and clean out the whole microwave, including inside and outside the door. Use your window cloth to dry!
