If you have children or pets, you know that everything goes in their mouths. It’s nearly impossible to keep everything out of their hands and paws, and yet so many of us clean our homes – including our floors – with strong chemical cleaners. If your kids are crawling around or keep their toys on a freshly mopped floor, you know those chemicals will eventually land in their mouth, in their eyes, and all over their skin.
That’s why I have always been so hesitant to use mopping products and floor cleaners. Reading more about this product, which gets an “F” rating from the Environmental Working Group, it is so disturbing to find out that the ingredients are of “high concern”, causing developmental and reproductive toxicity, asthma, and other respiratory issues. Do you really want your children or pets crawling on a floor infested with chemicals that do this? I don’t!
I know we would never intentionally smear the floors our kids crawl on with chemicals that cause reproductive toxicity or asthma, but it is still important to know what products are essentially causing us to do this. As a matter of fact, many of these chemical floor cleaners receive an F, which concerns me because I know so many people who use them to clean their floors. That’s why I am always so eager to talk about the Norwex Mop.
The Norwex Mop System (Click to read my full review) is a completely different process than anything you’ve ever used to clean your floors. All you have to do is wet the BacLock™ cleaning pad under some warm water, wring it out, and start mopping in a figure 8 pattern. When the front edges are looking a little dirty, just take off the pad, rinse it off, and keep going. This prevents the spread of dirty water and best of all, there are NO chemicals! The microfiber does it all.
If you just need a quick dry cleaning run across your floors, the dry microfiber pad works in the same way, picking up dirt, dust, and other allergens from the floor. Use the Rubber Brush to clean off the debris when you’re done and throw it in the laundry when it needs a cleaning.
The best part of this is that you don’t have to waste money and resources buying new mop pads all the time – once they become dirty, just throw them in the wash with the towels and they’re good as new! No chemicals, no fuss, no dangers for your kids.
Have you tried the Norwex Mop? What did you think?
