This is the full story, in living color.

Enjoy the  Video ‘viro version!

 


I’m so thrilled that I finally learned how to youtube!!       Thanks, DD1!!         And Stella has been a tremendous help to me in the tech dept, as well.        Also, thanks to SF!             Without him, I wouldn’t even have a computer to work on!       (Which is now fixed, I just need to get a new connector thingy, so I can get back on the net.       ARGH!!)

Fanatic Fan

XH cleaned my ceiling fan with an Enviro.        (The ugly green one.   But it works.           I can’t always have a pretty purple cloth for everything.       Cleaning is a dirty job, but some color has to do it.)

slob, humor, XH cleaning fan

XH doing a great job!!

Notice how he’s the one up on the ladder, not me?!          I can’t even stand up on my own 2 feet, NOT gonna attempt being up on a ladder!        Dirt is not worth a hip!!

slob, humor, dust

Here’s a sampling of the dust. You’re welcome.

Doesn’t work the same, as a dust mitt!!          There’s a reason Norwex makes different cloths for different jobs!

DD1 had previously used a dust mitt, (not even standing on a ladder.)

And the Enviro does pick up the dust, but it pushed some off the end of the blade too.     The dust mitt didn’t!    

But DD1’s purpose had been to do a quick trial of the dust mitt.        XH was up there to really clean!!         (Yes, at my request.     What??       You think he just roams the neighborhood, asking people what he can clean for them??       Don’t they wish!)

(I took more pix, but am still having trouble getting them off this phone.      Urgh!             Hopefully I Sweet Friend can figure it out soon!       If he can’t, no body can!!)

Now, all I have to do is get the Envirowand out, and dust the light globes!          And maybe I’ll get it done before we move!       Lol          After all, our lease is up in May 2018, and y’all know how I am so bad with deadlines!!

Mira! Mirrah

Mira! is Spanish for look!

Mirrah is Southern for mirror.

And here’s my dirty mirrah.

Dirty mirror.      Sexy knee is free.

First, ya clean it  with a wet Norwex Enviro.

Then, ya polish with the window cloth.            This gorgeous lavender window cloth!

Pretty, pretty, purple!

Wash out the cloths, wring, and hang to dry.

Brand Brush

I wanted to say “brand new brush”, but, ya know.      But, then I thought, “But it is a brand brush- it’s Norwex!      Ta Da!!”       Yay for the alliterative title working perfectly!!

Here’s a pic of the old, tired, plain yucky toilet brush.

slob, humor, nasty toilet brush
Yucky old brush.

 

 

 

 

 

(Yeah, good question.       Why DO I have 2 plungers??      Well, one is mine, and one was here.        But probably safe in assuming there won’t be a 2 plunger emergency any time soon.       Please, God!!       So, maybe 1 could go??           Perhaps.      At least to the laundry room, fer sure!)

And, it’s new home.        (Probably 1 reason it was so nasty, was it didn’t have a home before; just rested on the floor.      EEEewwww!         So, half not his fault at all!!)

slob, humor, old toilet brush in trash

Yuck!! It’s right where it belongs!

(Yes, I know you can see the Norwex cardboard packaging, and the aluminum can.       The 8 house doesn’t have the easy recycling system that I had in the park!)

Now, presenting a new and improved toilet brush:  The Norwex brand!!

slob, humor, Norwex new toilet brush

I super love it!!     I know it’s cray-cray to love a toilet brush, but I do!

But you can probably just call him “Nord”.      (Norwex-wex  and brand-bran.)       Here’s Nord’s sleek, stylish new home, a brush condo!        (Without the exorbitent monthly fees!)

slob, humor, new toilet brush holder
I love the thumb, and finger rests!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And oh!    The little extra brush, on the side is FAB-OH!!   It gets up under the rim, at the same time you’re brushing out the bowl!!        I never would have thought I’d get so excited about a new toilet brush!          That’s the power of Norwex, folks!

And the bristles are hard thick rubber, not thin little nylon bristles, like ordinary brushes.        So, I’m sure Nord is gonna be around for a good long time!

I  might even start swishing and swiping more than once a day, just to get to hold him again!

Did I mention that I’m love with Nord??

slob, humor, new toilet brush in new home

Nord in his new neighborhood.

He’s settling in so nicely, beside his new neighbors.       They’ve become very close.

(Yeah, yeah, I know, get rid of one of the plungers.)

Facebook Fail??

Last Sat., I attempted something brand new!        A FB Live!!      (Yes, yes, I attempted to post a video last year, but FB Live is a whole ‘nother animal!!)

Oh my goodness!!       It worked to post here!!       I can’t believe this!!        So excited!    😀            And I did it all by myself!!          See, an old, gray mare can be what she used to be!         {I didn’t want to say an old dog can learn new tricks, cuz I ain’t no dog!!}

{I wonder why I can’t hear it??      Any way, I hope you were stocked up on dramamine!}

Since this was a brave new world for me, as you might expect, I learned a L.O.T. of lessons!

  1. If the girls are not picked up on time- Abort the mission!!       I repeat- Abort the mission!!          As Sweet sis-in-love put it so gently, “It was a little hard to hear over the baby’s noise.”      Yes, poor PPJr was singing the song of her people, loudly!!        My party goers will appreciate, and understand, if I need to re-schedule.       Trust!    {It came out in many different snippets, instead of 1 long video.}
  2. I am a lousy cameraman.woman!!       In my defense, it’s extremely difficult to juggle a camera, and a whining toddler, who is clinging to me for dear life!!     And that’s not even mentioning the pre-schooler who wants to help.with.every.single.thing.        Whether she is actually capable or not.        With the restrictions of not filming their faces, yeah, a good time was had by all…..  ahem
  3. Make sure all products, and demos are set up, ahead of time!!        No one wants to get sea sick from the wildly swinging camera views, as I go look for stuff!!     See #2 above.
  4. Try to not roll my eyes every 2 seconds.      I hated seeing it myself!!       I can only imagine how irritated it made my attendees!      On a good note, I think I was giving lots of good eye contact, in between rolls!
  5. An hour would have been long enough!!     I scheduled 2, but there was just no way!!
  6. Make sure there is proper lighting.       Watching a blank screen, while I try to figure out how to end the blackout, was probably not in their top 3 fave moments of the day.
  7. Learn how to actually do a FB Live, sooner than 24 hours before the scheduled event.        Maybe even practice once or twice beforehand.
  8. Do not nap until 1 minute after the start time!       Very important key step!!
  9. Hire a speech coach next time.
  10. Write a script, instead of trying to wing it, on products you only learned about 3 weeks ago.
  11. Actually remember to purchase the raffle tickets, when you promised to give away prizes, and give a certain number of tickets for different things.       Hand writing the names, then cutting them up, was rather tedious.
  12. Have a bowl handy to put the tickets in!      Using a box with open bottom, was not the best choice.     (It was flapped shut, just not taped.    So some of the slips periodically escaped.       Everyone patiently waited while I retrieved them, thankfully.         Why wouldn’t they??        They wanted to know if they won something free!!

Norwex Nixes

Since I now have the Norwex ,

slob, humor, Norwex cloths
My kitchen cloths.

(2 eggplant kitchen cloths, 1 eggplant kitchen towel, 1 pink Enviro, and 1 graphite Enviro),      oh!      I almost forgot the dish scrubby cloth!

slob, humor, blue Norwex dish scrub cloth

I need to purge, and donate the other kitchen rags cloths I have.

 

5 dish rags, and 6 dish towels.     I know I have at least 2 more dish rags somewhere….     (Yep, went to the kitchen, for a peach drink, and found another one…)

slob, humor, another microfiber cloth

I knew I had more!

{Aren’t PP’s hands, and knees so pretty!}

These are not including the 4 brand new microfiber ones I had!!

slob, humor, brand new microfiber kitchen cloths

Several- like 4!

These 6 Norwex cloths will replace the existing 15+ rags, and towels I have.

http://melindamitchell.norwex.biz/en_US/


WHAT??       How can that be??

Well, let me tell you!!

Norwex is microfiber, just like cheap ones, BUT so much better!

The University of Washington

“The term microfiber technically applies to fiber that is 1.0 denier or smaller. The
smaller the denier measurement, the finer and more effective the microfiber. Superior microfiber measures 0.13 denier.”

And Standard Fiber

tells us that “In terms of fills, in order to be considered a “microfiber” the fiber must be less than 1 denier, which is extremely fine. This gives the fill its airy weight, downy feel, and soft, silky texture. In comparison, a human hair is 20 denier, whereas Standard Fiber’s microfibers are typically 0.9 denier or less.”

Norwex is 1/200 of the width of a human hair.     That means it’s  __.1_ denier.      We are far superior to any other microfiber on the market!!

{I did that math all by myself!!    Well, after I did it the first time, it didn’t look right, so I redid it, and that time it was right!      Yes, DD1 checked my calculations!!  😉  }

So, since Norwex is such a finely textured thread, and woven so densely per inch, it picks up 99% of the bacteria, and germs on the surface!      And yes, we are Government certified to say that!!      And since it has BacLock, I can just use, rinse, wring, hang to dry, then reuse!        They only need washing once a week!!

Not only does Norwex nix the germs, it nixes all other cloths, and paper towels too!!

Can you say savings??!!

In case you can’t tell, I LOVE my Norwex!!

Washer Washing

Doing laundry today, I noticed how dirty the washer is.     Isn’t that funny, that you have to clean the thing that cleans??

Also funny, is how I find myself noticing things that need cleaning now!           Slob recovery is a wonderful thing!!

And, knowing that I can probably clean it in a few minutes, with the Norwex, and just water, makes me want to clean, not ignore it!!          YAY!!           Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

With no further ado, I present: The Washer needing Washing.

I had already started cleaning the lid, when I stopped myself, and grabbed the camera!

My trusty, damp Norwex Enviro cloth.

Just the Norwex Enviro, some water, and a little elbow grease!

And dirty becomes clean!

[I already had water in the tub.]

YAY!!  the middle of the agitator=clean!    The lid crease= clean!     (The pink is the instruction label, the orange was the rusty/dirty. )    

slob, humor, cleaner!

And the bleach dispenser is pretty clean!      I was just gonna leave the letters dirty, but I realized that would be hypocritical of me to tout how wonderfully the Enviro cleans, and then not finish the job!!

So, I went back in.

slob, humor, clean bleach dispenser

There! Almost clean enough to eat off of~ But why would you want to??

And now the washer no longer needs washing!!

Is this way better, Shirley?

Past Purdy

Look at this:

slob, humor, ugly past purdy spot

Past Purdy spot

Pitiful.   Just how long ago was it, that I posted about my spot ‘o purdy??      

slob, humor, purple jar

Aha! That’s it!! Perfect!

I know it can’t have been that long ago.        Oh no,  <groan> now I’m going to have to do research.      <shudder>    A word that is so close a cousin to math, that it gives me the heebie jeebies too.

Groan, it was only June 27.      Yes, this year.        Amazing how fast clutter accumulates!

So, once I recognized the problem, (That’s the first step, right Gary??), I determined to restore the spot’s former glory.

  • Put garbage bag in the can.    Naturally after taking out the full one.      I even went all out, and took the kitchen trash too- all the way outside to the bin!!
  •      Replaced the filter in my Brita, put the rest of the box in the pantry.        (Where hopefully I will remember to look for it, next time I need it!)
  •       Filed the blue, and purple polka dotted calendar, along with the bills, and the check!        (How in the world did I end up buying an extra $69 money order for last month’s rent??       Well, you know how me and math don’t get along!!)
  •        Put the glitter glue away in the craft cabinet.    I actually have a place for it now!!         Yoo hoo!!!
  •        The little pink box in the back is baggies, so kitchen cabinet.     They even have a designated spot, too!      I’m on a roll!!
  •        Unpacked the cardboard package, and put stuff away in bathroom.
  •        Placed stapler in desk cubby.
  •        Stashed the 4 magic towels.        Just don’t ask me where…..
  •        Put pink box of new earrings, in donate spot.      And they’re already gone!!
  •        Trashed the $1 microfiber towel, since I’m selling Norwex now.       (And then what happens just yesterday??        Barb, from De-cluttering the Stuff, challenged me to do a side by side comparison between a cheap microfiber cloth cleaning job, and a Norwex one!       Herp derp!        NEVER throw anything away!!      No, wait!      Wrong lesson!       Do get rid of anything not useful, or beautiful.       And it only costs a dollar to replace.      And it’s only 1 item I’ve regretted getting rid of, out of about 1 million[??].     So, I think I’m on the good side, there!)

And then, Ta-Da!!

Here we are, back to Purdy!!

Yes, it’s the exact same picture.  But it looks exactly the same, so why waste my time taking an identical pic??

Shirley’s Sheets

Well, not really Shirley’s sheets, but Shirley took them.      And they’re not really sheets either, more like towels.      Well, one of them is an old, raggedy baby blankie.          But to a shelter dog, it’ll make their hard bed feel better, so we’re pretending they’re sheets.       Got it??      Good, let’s go.

slob, humor, donating doggy towels

Sis Shirley and me.

Another towel??             Yep, this one was not included in the __31__ count, since I had forgotten it, till I saw this pic.

Shirley volunteers at a no-kill shelter, C.A.R.E.      She has a huge heart!!          So when I told her I had a towel, and a blankie to give her, she was thrilled!!         And she drove all the way over to my house from Apollo Beach to get them!        JK!!

Actually, she was coming to DD1’s Norwex party, and I happened to remember them before she left!!             Yay!

She also cares for a feral cat colony, at her home.        She tirelessly feeds them, then traps as many as she can.        Out of her own pocket, she takes them to the vet, to get them healthy, then she spays or neuters them.

What a great idea!! Pinterest.com

Normative Norwex

Remember in Party Prep, I said more about DD1’s party to come?

Well here it is!!

Her party was for launching her Norwex business.       (FYI: she signed up under our friend, Kristen.     Yeah, the twins’ mama!)

What’s that??      Don’t know what Norwex is??

 

slob, humor, Norwex box

                              Not the actual product!   Just the box her kit came in!                                   Please notice the clean dishes in the background!

It’s only the best thing since sliced bread!!

Norwex is a company whose products let you clean your house, with just water, and a cloth.         YES!!         It’s true!

When I first heard about Norwex, I was sooo skeptical!!       How in this world can you clean 90% of your house with just a cloth, and water???     HOW??

Well, Norwex is microfiber, with silver inside, so it self purifies.       But not just ANY microfiber!        It is so thin, it’s beyond the industry standard, waaay beyond!       So, you are mechanically cleaning, not chemically cleaning.

With Lysol spray, bleach wipes, etc, you are chemically cleaning.       In other words, you are relying on the chemicals to kill the bacteria.         If you read the label on the wipes, you are supposed to leave them on the surface for 4 minutes!!          Anyone actually do that??       I sure didn’t!!        And then you’re left with all this chemical residue, that some products say you have to clean the counter after.     What???       I’m trying to get it clean in 1 go round, not spray, wait 4 minutes, wipe, than have to clean AGAIN!     No thank you!!

Instead, you dampen the Norwex cloth, and clean only the ONCE!!        Because there are so many fibers per square inch, it picks up 99% of the germs, etc, the first time!!  And no cancer causing chemicals, that you then have to clean off!!        Win/Win!! After you use it, just rinse, and hang to dry.

Simple!         (You are recommended to wash them once a week.)

Definitely the way to go!!


I’m signing up to sell it myself!!     So, if ya want to know more, email me.

Oh yeah, 1 more thing, the mop!!

The handle is adjustable to the user.      So, DD1 puts it at full length, for herself, then lowers it all the way down, for PP.        As soon as PP saw it, she grabbed it, and dry mopped the living room!!

slob, humor, Norwex mop,

Isn’t it cute?? And easy for almost-4-year-old-hands to handle!!
