Norwex Dish Cloth Review

norwex-dish-cloth

The subject of Norwex cloths have come up several times on my page & many have chimed in with such statements: “they make their products in China”. That is true for the most part, but they do make their dish cloths here in the US so I agreed to do a review on that specific product. Their headquarters are in Norway, with their North American headquarters in Canada. Generally I like to support only companies making their products here, with their headquarters here also. But as several have pointed out before, the Norwex line is sold by many Work-At-Home Moms here in the US, so you are helping generate a bit of income for a couple of people here in the US by purchasing one of these dish cloths.

The cloth is $6.99, and here is a description of it from the Norwex website (link to the product: http://norwex.newgreencleaningsupplies.com/kitchens/white-netted-dish-cloth). “The Norwex Dish Cloth is a loosely woven white nylon netted cloth. It dries quickly and will not absorb grease or odor and is an indispensable tool for cleaning dishes in the sink! It does a great job of cleaning everything and anything from plates and bowls to stuck-on food in pots, pans and casserole dishes, and it doesn’t scratch. Even better, because it’s so “holey”, this cloth can just be rinsed through with a little soap and water and left to sit in your sink for quite a while before washing. When you do need to wash it, you can put it straight into the washer and dryer using any laundry soap you like.

  • Great for removing flour dough, etc. from counter tops      after baking
  • Removes sticky or stubborn substances off counters
  • Scrub off soap scum from shower stalls
  • Take off bugs and paint from windows
  • Cleaning vegetables from your garden
  • Removing soap film that builds up on the bottom of dishwasher      doors

The cloth was quite large so I cut it into 4 pieces. As described, it does a great job with anything in your sink. I’ve even used it on my cast iron pans to remove crusted on eggs & more. I love seeing that made in the USA tag, I love that it is reusable for a long period of time, and I love that it doesn’t retain much moisture at all & end up smelling like a stinky sponge (which I ditched long ago for a simple wash cloth).

Amanda, the consultant who sent the dish cloth to me had this to say about other products made in the USA by Norwex: “I have found 7 other products that made in the US and 1 that is “produced” in the US. Unfortunately, there is no list for me to go off of on my site or the in the catalog, so I am reading labels from my personal collection which does not encompass the entire product line. However, here is the list: Descaler (an enzyme replacement for CLR), Mattress Cleaner, Oven & Grill Cleaner, Laundry Pre-Wash, Refresh Odor Neutralizer (comparable to Febreeze, but chemical-free) Drain Care, Kid’s All Natural Bubble Bath, and (My favorite!) Timeless Lip Balm (which won’t melt in the car and is gluten-free).” Unfortunately, I have Norwex on my “Greenwashers” list, as they don’t fully disclose ingredients in their cleaning supplies, and every label I’ve viewed from their personal care line has ingredients of concern. Here’s a link to their catalog if you’d like to take a look for yourself: http://media.norwexcs.com/Product-Manual-2,0.pdf

    I love the Norwex cloths. They clean great without any cleaners, just water. They are guaranteed for 2 years and don’t harbor bacteria which causes mildew and mold growth within the cloth. Even though they are not made in the USA, they would be a fantastic addition to anyone wanting to save chemical from being in their houses and rinsing down the drain into the watershed.
