I have done several events and saw a booth for Norwex.  A few weeks ago I tried some of their cleaning cloths.  No chemicals or solvents needed, you just use water and these special cloths for cleaning.  They are infused with silver, which does not let bacteria live.  I never would have believed it until I used them, but they really work and I love them!  They also have cleaning cloths for the face and body, no soap needed.  They remove makeup.

That sounds pretty cool.  I've heard of some kind of silver infused sponge at the San Diego Farmers Market but I haven't heard anything about them since.  That was probably 10 years ago.

Long term, they save you money because you don't have t buy any cleaning solvents.  Not to mention helping the envioronmnet.

I espeially liked the polishing cloth, as it can be used on mirrors, windows and other smoth surfaces with just a little water.

They are made of some sort of special microfiber, and I believe they are made in the USA so they are a little spendy, but long term they save you money as you don't have to purchase cleaning solvents.

They also have a special kit for kids.  I think this is neat because it teaches kids to clean up after themselves, they can help around the house and there is no toxicity you have to worry about.

I will have to research further, but I heard that the nanoparticles of silver in these cloths are not all the environmentally friendly.  Nanoparticles, even out of benevolent elements are a big unknown and have so much destructive potential.
