Kids seem to grow in spurts. Just when you think you have the next season covered in dressing your child, he or she shoots up an inch. Buying kids’ attire can be an expensive endeavor; this seems to be especially true of shoes. Last year’s summer shoes tend to pinch. Yet with the sandal season being so short, who wants to pay a lot of money for a pair that may only be worn a handful of times?
One solution for saving money on the kid clothing budget is to find shoes at garage sales or secondhand stores. This is certainly economical, but potential drawbacks are present. Pairing a cute sundress with splotchy sandals is not exactly an adorable combination for your daughter. The solution: Norwex Cleaning Paste.
It’s a quick and easy shoe pick-me-up: simply pair a damp Enviro Cloth with a little Cleaning Paste and begin to scrub the dirt away. Suddenly sandals look brand new, and you did not have to break the bank to buy them. Convincing your daughter of the merits of staying off the playground in her white shoes is not guaranteed, but at least you know an easy solution.
Of course this covers girls’ white sandals, but this product does work equally as well on tennis shoes. Check out the great results I got recently on a pair of old sneakers:
Boys’s shoes have a second problem: they tend to get stinky. Quickly. If your home has a built-in locker room, this issue will not affect you. Since this is not a standard feature for most suburban homes, getting rid of the stench of sweat is necessary. Norwex has a great solution for this too. Squirting Sportzyme, a specially formulated bioactive solution into tennis shoes and onto other sports equipment of their inevitable stink.
Two problems with two Norwex answers. Solutions to help your children put their best foot forward this summer.
The Norwex Descaler is a product that REALLY works on hard water stains, rust stains, calcium buildup, and whatever else may be lurking in your bathroom. Check out these great “Before and After” Photos:
One thing I love about our Descaler is it doesn’t have harsh chemicals in it like you will see in many other products on the market.
Wondering how it works? The Descaler comes in an easy-to-use spray bottle with an on/off nozzle; it’s very easy use. Spray your surface and let it sit for 10 minutes before you wipe it off. Be sure to give it time to do its full work and get the best results. Even though it’s so tempting to wipe it off early to see what is disappearing, it works best when you leave it on as instructed.
When it’s time to wipe the Descaler off of the surface being cleaned, you will get your absolute best results by wiping with the Norwex Enviro Cloth or Bathroom Scrub Mitt. The Enviro Cloth will pick up anything and everything off your surface giving you best clean possible. You can’t go wrong with the Enviro Cloth! For more stubborn build up, the abrasive side of the Bathroom Scrub Mitt is perfect.
There are reported cases of damage to humans and home appliances with the frequent use of traditional oven cleaners. A common toxic chemical compound found in these products is sodium hydroxide, or “caustic soda”, that possesses a very high level of alkaline that may readily be the main cause of a lot of damage if not used properly.
Be careful to check labels for the terms like “corrosive” or “caustic” which indicates it contains caustic agents like potassium and potassium hydroxide. An oven cleaner having caustic ingredients may provide an effective cleaning product but those ingredients can be potentially hazardous to health and the environment. Beware of oven cleaners fumes since those chemicals can be inhaled and are very harmful. In addition corrosive alkali causes chemical burns to the skin or in lungs if inhaled. Special precautions are required when handling caustic oven cleaners.
There are some scary symptons associated with corrosive chemical poisoning, including:
- Difficulty in breathing
- Swelling throat
- Vision loss
- Abdominal pains
- Bloody stools
- Burns of the esophagus
- Vomiting of blood
- Low blood pressure
- Skin irritations
