I will admit, the Norwex Enviro Wand looks weird. Maybe even a little flashy. I mean, it’s fluorescent and has a ton of these crazy little nubs all over one side. Initially, I couldn’t see why I would want this over the Enviro Cloth, or the Dusting Mitt. It seemed… excessive.
However, once I began using it, I saw the magic promptly unfold…
Price: Under $35
Comes with: Flexible Wand and Double-sided Microfiber Sleeve
General Idea: Dust in hard to reach places. No additional products, like furniture polish, needed. Throw it in the wash when you’re done. Warrantied for 2 years.
- My Initial Thoughts: Too good to be true.
- My Final Thoughts: Best invention EVER for dusting tricky, hard to reach, hardly ever dusted places!
I’ve nicknamed it the EnviroWANT!
Here’s why I love it:
It reaches EFFECTIVELY into those ‘hard to reach’ places.
My kiddos grabbed this the first day we had it and began dusting the TV, stand, dvd player, etc. While I’ve always used my EnviroCloth on these surfaces, I noticed that this wand eliminated the need to reach around or move behind the TV to get to the dust that is hard to reach (but still visible from the couch), like inside the small space between the Playstation and that thing-that-controls-the-speaker-volume (my husband will be mortified at my lack of knowledge).
Most importantly, the Norwex Enviro Wand eliminated the need for me to do any of the work, seeing as my daughter was doing it all for me (willingly and without prompting, I might add)!
2. STAIRS, COMPUTERS, PIANOS…
My kids then moved to the stairs. Genius! Here’s why: I have this little lip on the other side of the steps that is hard to sweep because the spindles are in the way. This dusty little ledge always bothers me, but I consider it too much work to get in between the spindles. So it stays dirty and I stay bothered. But not anymore!
This was PERFECT for that tricky spot. In fact, I then quickly swiped the wand along each stair, and this did an even better job than a dry mop, as it can get into those corners better! Who knew that dusting could feel so exciting (I may or may not need to get out more)! While we were on a roll, we popped right into the office and did the computer screens, desk and piano as well!
I never had to shake out the wand, and didn’t even need to throw it in the wash for the next use.
Over the next few days, I became aware of so many more uses.
3. That space on your kitchen floor, between the oven and the cupboard, or the one between the firdge and the cupboards, that is ALWAYS full of humongous crumbs.
You think to yourself that you should do something about it, because it will give you that clean-all-over feeling that takes you to your happy place. But you never actually do anything about it, because it means actually moving those giant appliances. Well, no more, my friends! The Norwex Enviro Wand fits in that space, grabs all the dust, and allows you to pull out those giant crumbs that laugh at you every time you prepare food! You just have to sweep them away! Look who’s laughing now! This is the feature that got me the MOST excited, and the one that really emphasizes my need to get out more.
4. CEILING FANS
My dear, clean-loving friends: this wand also reaches the ceiling fan! That’s what that strange bendy-feature is for! Bend it in the middle, and you can drag it along the top of the fan blade. Ceiling fan too high? This wand it made to also attach to your telescopic mop pole to reach high places (including ceiling corners that contain spider webs).
5. IT’S ALSO GREAT FOR WINDOW LEDGES, VENETIAN BLINDS, AND CLEANING THE TOPS OF YOUR CUPBOARDS!
This wand is obviously a wonder. It sounds too good to be true, but it really does grab ALL the dust. I can’t seem to see any dust-grabbing difference between the two sides, as they both work just as well in all situations for me so far. If the sleeve gets nasty, you pull it off and throw it in the wash. And it’s actually really easy to put back on.
The Norwex Enviro Wand is a five star product, and a purchase you truly won’t regret.
You could even add it to your bag of tricks with your kids. ie: “If you don’t start behaving, I’m going to have to take away your Enviro Wand privileges.”

Please tell me what I’m
Doing wrong ! My wand just seems to push the dust around and doesn’t capture a thing
Suzanne Holt says
Try washing it and drying it in the dryer. If that doesn’t help, rub your hand against it to create more static.
I bought the enviro kit at my neighbors. My question is, how do I clean them when they get full of dirt and grime? I plan on using them on my walls too which I know accumulate a lot of dirt.

Hi Jeanne. Thanks for stopping by. Here’s a good post on how to clean your Norwex cloths: https://littlegreencloth.com/2012/02/28/how-to-clean-your-norwex-microfiber/
Went to a party tonight and had to have the duster. It’s hard to swallow $30 for a duster but I have a dumb Ledge around the stairs going into basement which can’t be reached except with a ladder. Perfect product! Then I realized the telescopic pole is another $30. That is pure crazy! We are a family of 6, with 4 young kids, living paycheck to paycheck on one budget is hard enough. I sucked it and used my meager saving to buy this hopfully Magic duster. I’ll still need the ladder to dust (which only happens if serious company, like parents, are coming to visit) unless anyone knows of a cheaper telescopic wand that will work with this duster? Thank you

Yes, the products are expensive. But for good reason – they are an investment that truly LASTS! You won’t regret your purchase! I love the 2 year warranty on both the EnviroWand and Telescopic pole, too! You may want to consider signing up as a consultant. Did you know that it’s free this month (Sept 2015)? You only have to pay $9.99 for shipping your starter pack to you, and you’ll get 35% off future purchases. And the potential to earn extra income for your family – it’s easy to sell to your friends, because everybody cleans!

I also love to dust my baseboards with it!!! No more dragging out the vacuum cleaner or scooting along on my knees with a rag!!!
Do you think the enviro wand or dusting mitt is more efficient at dusting horizontal blinds? Thank you!
Crystal Moore says
When it comes to horizontal blinds that have wide, firm slats, the wand does the trick. It’s helpful to bend the wand at the end and just use a small portion of the wand in between the slats. This is, of course, if you dust your blinds on a semi-regular basis. If you only do it every year or few years, your dust will be ‘sticky’ and you’ll want a wet cloth to remove the build up. However, if you have the thinner version of slats that are very flexible, the dusting mitt, applied in a quick, repetitive downward motion, is much more effective. Once again, this works well on blinds that are dusted semi-regularly. Hope this information helps!
