Spring Cleaning the Healthy Way with Norwex!

We spoke to Emma Ozburn at Norwex to find out about harsh cleaning chemicals and how to clean without them;

Did you know that very few of the world’s 85,000-plus chemicals have been tested for their impact on human health? Over 200 chemicals have been found in the core blood of newborns, and typical adults have more than 700 man-made chemicals in their bodies. Personally, I find that really shocking. Norwex’s Mission Statement is simple, ‘Improving the quality of life by radically reducing chemicals in our home’. So take a minute and think about what you currently clean your home with. Do the sprays make you cough, or do they cause skin irritants? Do you already suffer with asthma? You may be doing more harm to yourself than you think.

With Norwex you can clean 80% of your home with just our superior-quality microfibre cloths and water. These aren’t your typical store-bought cloths, I promise. A mere 1/200th the thickness of a human hair, our microfibre is a superior blend of extra-dense, super-fine fibres for superior absorption and effectiveness. Instead of relying on toxic chemicals to clean, Norwex harnesses the physical power of our microfibre and water to easily and thoroughly clean any surface. You get an immaculate clean while radically reducing use of harmful chemicals that can affect your family’s health.

 

Whilst our microfibre is amazing at cleaning, it’s also removing up to 99% of bacteria and germs at the same time leaving your surfaces germ free with only water. When wet, the antibacterial agent called BackLock will purify the cloth, keeping it fresher for longer. No need to machine wash everytime you clean, simply rinse, wring and hang to dry. We offer lots of cleaning cloth options, but our stand out products are the EnviroCloth and Window (polish cloth). These two cloths are like the Ant and Dec of Norwex, they belong together. Use the EnviroCloth to clean the surface (removes up to 99% of the germs and bacteria) and follow it up with the Window Cloth to remove the water residue for a streak free shine. Amazing results especially on windows, mirrors, hobs, taps, towel warmers, and more!

Does your current laundry powder leave a residue in your washing machine? Think about what it’s leaving on your clothes. Did you know that most laundry detergent contains ingredients that can cause skin irritations and breathing issues? They are full of harmful chemicals like phosphates, sulfates, chlorine, dyes, bleach and ammonia just to name a few. Our Ultra Power Plus Laundry Detergent is free from all of those! It’s simply a soap concentrate and you only need 1-2 tsp to clean a normal load of laundry. Not only does it clean laundry without added harmful ingredients, but it is also a multi-purpose cleaner that works on things like oven racks, jewelry, microwaves, and carpet just to name a few.

 

If you would love to learn more about creating a safer haven, I would love to show you how.

Planning your Work Day with Ann Little

When it comes to planning, so many of us know how important it can be in helping reach our goals, but we often stall when it comes to actually committing plans to paper.

Having a plan, any plan, means you are more likely to get things done. Here are my top tips to help you get planned and make the plans happen.ann little

  1. Plan your day, your week, your month and your year.

Spending time planning will save you time when it comes to implementing your actions. Each day spend a small amount of time planning your day, 10 minutes is often enough; each week set aside some time to plan the week ahead and so on.

Some tasks happen regularly so it is easy to know that they need to be added in. If you are using a digital planner you can set recurring tasks saving time even on the planning!

  1. Look at your priorities.

Not everything you need to do is urgent, and not everything needs to be done by you. I love Covey’s Quadrant for assessing your tasks. It is a fairly simply concept where you look at how urgent and important your tasks are, and you put each task in the correct box. You can now prioritise your tasks, doing the highest priority first. Sounds obvious doesn’t it, but how often do we let ourselves get side-tracked or procrastinate?

  1. Analyse how you spend your day.

You might feel busy all day but busy isn’t always productive. Why not track your time and see what you’re really doing. Use an app or pen and paper to note down your activities that you do throughout the day and look back on what you have been doing. Are you being productive and getting things done, or are you distracted by things that simply waste your time?

  1. Allocate time blocks.

covey's quadrantTime blocks are finite chunks of time, e.g. an hour or 90 minutes, where you focus on one task. This is perfect for the tasks that can run away with you or seem never-ending. Set a timer for an end time and be present in the one task that you are doing. Instead of a timer you could have another cue to represent when the time ends, for example work on one task for the length of a washing machine cycle.

I love planning, and I believe in its power. I have my time planned in advance, and when I can plan I do – I have a weekly menu planner for the family and shopping list; I write a list of packing items when I go away; I have a list of home improvements to work through and tick off.

Now is the perfect time to start your plans and reach your goals – What’s stopping you?
