I have received emails, facebook & twitter comments, or people that just don't understand the concept of using Norwex and the embeded silver. Some believe that Silver is harmful as a chemical. Others believe that the Silver can be absorbed into the skin. Many are not familiar with the use of Silver as an antibacterial agent. While those that work in hospitals or around medical facilities are familiar with silver for burn centers, it is often surprising how many are unsure about using the Norwex Enviro Cloth for use in the home instead of chemicals. Using just water with the Norwex Enviro Cloth is so simple and saves so much time & money. Think of all the Window Cleaner and Paper Towels you are using. I can't tell you the last time I did purchase Paper Towels!
Going "green" is a phrase that everyone wants to use to protect the environment. But what about your health and the health of your family. Be willing to give up your chemical cleansers and protect those you care the most about!
I found that just not purchasing any chemical cleansers was so much easier! I don't even go down the household cleanser isle any more and with that cleanser "smell" I sure don't miss it! If you have asthma or breathing problems, you know what I mean.
I thought perhaps this was the best clarification for those not familiar with Norwex products or the use of Silver as an antibacterial agent. --
Silver in our cloths- Norwex has figured out how to embed silver in the cloths, which is what Antibac means. Why would you want silver? Silver is a natural antibacterial agent, which means no virus or bacteria can live when it is in contact with silver, it actually suffocates. Norwex microfiber cloths remove 99.9% of the bacteria from surfaces, resulting in a cleaner, healthier environment.
So, Norwex antibac cloths are essentially self-sanitizing. You can clean the dirtiest thing you can imagine and then rinse the cloth, hang it to dry and by the time it is dry, all the trapped bacteria will be dead. Of course, you still launder the cloths to release everything, but the silver does give you piece of mind.
You may see other microfiber cloths that say they have silver, but what they mean is that their fibers are coated with silver, which will eventually wash away, whereas with the Norwex cloths, they are embedded, so the silver is in there for the life of the cloth.
Norwex uses only micro silver, which is perfectly safe. You may have heard about nano silver, which has had some bad press and may not be safe because it may be absorbed into the skin. Micro silver is much too large of a molecule to do that.
I hope this has helped you understand the benefits of cleaning with Norwex microfiber. Norwex can help you live the life you want to live. Norwex will save time & money, improve your family's health by reducing allergies, and preserves the environment for future generations.
