If you have high windows, you know that washing them is a bigger-than-average chore. You have to dig out the ladder, awkwardly stand on the ladder, and when you’re done, your windows are clean, but they’re left with streaks! Did you know that Norwex has a small, yet effective tool, to make this whole process easier? Get your spring cleaning done easier with the Norwex Mop Brackets!
How The Mop Brackets Work
Small but mighty, these simple brackets attach to your Norwex Mop Base, enabling you to attach your Window cloth to the base and tackle the windows. Since the mop has a long, telescopic handle that is adjustable, extending between 38.58″ – 62.99,” you’ve got great reaching power!
Here’s how you do it:
- Attach the brackets onto the base by pushing them on until they ‘click’. Hold at an angle and add the top end on first, then push the bottom end on. You’ll want to bend them slightly the first time, to ensure that they don’t slide around, but stay in place. These are made of a pliable aluminum, so bending them out slightly is easy to do!
- Lock your mop base so that it does not swivel (this is the green piece that says ‘lock.’ Just push it down)
- With your blue pad on your mop base (dry), wrap your window cloth around the pad tightly, and push a piece of fabric into each of the holes in the brackets. Some people prefer to use a small pencil, chopstick or tool to do this.
- Using a spray bottle of just water, mist your windows.
- Clean the edges of your window first, turning your mop head vertically for the sides, and horizontally for the top and bottom.
- Use an upward motion, and push the mop from the bottom, to the top. Repeat until the window is almost dry.
Some extra tips
- If doing your outside windows, they may be extra dirty. Some people prefer to clean the windows first with either the mop pad (wet) or to wrap a damp enviro cloth around the mop pad and insert into the mop brackets, as you would the window cloth, and clean off all the excess dirt first, then follow with the window cloth method listed above.
- If the mop is flipping while you do this, you’ll want to try two things:
- Avoid wiping down. Just wipe in an upward motion.
- Shorten the length of the handle, so you can apply firmer pressure as you wipe up.
- If you have the EnviroTowel, you can use this instead of the window cloth. It’s much bigger than the window cloth, so it’s great for cleaning multiple windows if you’re spring cleaning!
Did you Know: If you have high walls or ceilings you want to clean, you can use the wet mop pad to clean. Just use that locking mechanism to prevent the mop from swivelling around.
