Dusty old books. Dusty as the hills. Old as dirt. Could be reason why these sayings are still around. Dust – can’t get away from it. Doesn’t matter how tight your window seals are or if you can convince your family to actually shut the doors behind them, you still have to deal with dust. Everywhere. While I do rely on my Enviro Cloths, one very important Norwex item that is sometimes overlooked is the Dusting Mitt. (If you are just getting started in Norwex, I always recommend the Household Package that includes both an Enviro Cloth and the Dusting Mitt along with our Window Cloth). Why do I love my dusting mitt so much?
Ever since my kids were little, they have LOVED helping with dusting. (Maybe that is because before the days of Norwex, I would never let them help anyplace else – too many chemicals.) Dusting before the Norwex Dusting Mitt involved an old t-shirt that would get so filthy that it would end up actually leaving dust clumps every where. Plus of course, my kids thought using the furniture spray was fun. Although I would try to monitor it, I think every time we would use almost half a can, with most of it ending up on the floor. If you have wood floors, that spray makes them rather slick and dangerous, not to mention messy.
Ever since we bought that Norwex mitt, that has changed. They can help and my furniture has never been cleaner. Partly because I was smart and also bought them their own kids dusting mitt. This baby is perfect for little hands and lets them join in the fun. Actually I would say dusting is fun now. Before my Norwex mitt, dusting did seem like a chore. You had to move everything out of the way, then wait for the spray to dry. Now I can dust everything with my mitt, including picture frames and decorations. Dust is no longer safe anywhere in my house. The mitt collects it all and captures it. No more dust clumps after I finish a particularly messy area.
The best thing about our mitt is that it is reversible, so whether you are a lefty or righty, the mitt fits you. Knowing several left handed people, they will say that is huge since most products do not exactly cater to them. I have also been known to dirty up one side of the mitt, then simply flip it over. I can keep cleaning longer that way since the dirt remains trapped on the other side of the mitt. This mitt has revolutionized the way that I clean the majority of my house. Even bathrooms since it works great on cupboards too. This is why I definitely want to give the Norwex dusting mitt a hand – especially since mine fits so perfectly inside!
P.S. One other dusting item that I also appreciate is the EnviroWand. While it does not fit over my hand, it does fit perfectly in my hand and works fabulously for cleaning fans and even under dressers. Dust is scared to be at my house since it does not last for long. 🙂
