IMG_20190422_110814_753000

Today is Earth Day! With increasing reports on how climate change is making an impact on our environment, its important now more than ever to take steps to reduce the damage – and make every day Earth Day!

While the problem can sometimes seem larger than we can handle as individuals, there are simple things every one of us can do each day to make an impact!

Here’s a list of a few easy things you can start with:

  1. Stop using paper towels – use cloths to wipe up spills instead! These Counter Cloths are the perfect thing to keep handy for every day messes.
  2. Turn off the lights.
  3. Stop buying bottled water.
  4. Skip the straw – keep reusable straws in your bag or purse when you’re on the go!
  5. Bring reusable bagsreusable bags and produce bags to the grocery store.
  6. Drive less, walk more.
  7. Skip the meat a few times a week.
  8. Save time & energy – use a pressure cooker.
  9. Ditch disposable bowls, plasticware, cups and paper napkins! Use real dishes and cloth napkins instead!
  10. Take shorter showers.

The Ultimate Norwex Graduation Gift Guide

Graduation season is upon us. Our Sunday afternoons are about to be filled with the sounds of “Pomp and Circumstance” and slices of sugary graduation cake. And, if you’re like most people, you’ll probably be stuffing cards with $20s for lack of a better gift idea.

But if you’re looking for something a little more unique – something that can help them save time, money and the environment – then Norwex is right up your alley. Here’s why:

  • Norwex can eliminate the need for things like dryer sheets, makeup remover cloths, face wash – even soap – so they have more money for things like books … and pizza.
  • Norwex is the perfect gift for the environmentally-minded graduate. It reduces waste and introduces them to new ways to live chemical-free.
  • Norwex can cut down on cleaning time by about 75 percent, so its ideal for anyone who doesn’t like to clean. And who likes to clean less than teenagers, right?

So, which Norwex items make the best gifts? Check out this list. Pick just one or two or  put them all together in a handy tote or laundry basket!

Norwex College Survival Kit

Dryer Balls

Whether you get the wool Fluff and Tumble Dryer Balls or the regular Dryer Balls, these are the perfect gift for anyone just starting out on their own. They are reusable so no need to keep buying dryer sheets or fabric softener; they last for years (the Fluff and Tumble Dryer Balls might even last as long as their college stay); and they eliminate the chemical residue that is typically left behind when using regular dryer sheets or fabric softeners.

Body Cloths

Our Body Cloths are an easy and chemical-free way for anyone to take care of their skin. They can be used for 3-days to a week without needing to be laundered; there’s no need to keep buying skin care items; and they can go soap-free to save even more money!

Bath Towels

These towels are super absorbent and fast drying, so they are ready to use again quickly. They also contain our BacLock  antibacterial agent so the towel inhibits bacterial odor, mold and/or mildew growth – meaning fewer towels, less laundry.

Sink Mats

These highly absorbent microfiber and foam mats are perfect for resting dishes, contacts cases, or toothbrushes on.

Dish Cloths

This specially-woven, non-absorbent netted cloth is great for scrubbing without a lot of water. Just a few drops of dish soap will do it. The net won’t hold onto food particles and soap after its rinsed, so no need for regular machine washing.

EnviroCloth

You can’t go wrong with this classic. The EnviroCloth removes up to 99 percent of bacteria from a surface when following proper care and use instructions with water alone – so it makes cleaning up simple and easy. Use it dry for dusting or wet for cleaning up sinks and counters. It’s also super-absorbent so it will clean up spills quickly. The EnviroCloth also contains BacLock, so all they need to do is rinse and hang to dry in between uses.

So, whether your graduate is heading off to college, traveling or just starting out on their own, Norwex has their needs covered!

 

 

 


Time For a Fresh Start

May is finally here , and my goodness, it’s wonderful, isn’t it?

It’s been a rough couple of months weather-wise here in Iowa. We endured the typical snow, ice and freezing temps that come every winter only to be hit with more freezing temps in March and freak snowstorms in April. But the sun did eventually come out, and now the days are warmer, birds are singing, and new life is blooming all around us. It’s the perfect time for a fresh start.

So, I’m taking a cue from Mother Nature and giving this site some new life, too.

I started Radically Clean a couple years ago as a way to connect with others who are just as passionate about living a healthier lifestyle as I am. But, as my business took off, life got busier and blogging got put on the backburner.

Then I ran a 30-day spring cleaning challenge on Facebook last month and was amazed at the response! It was a great reminder of how many people are looking for ways to make their lives easier, happier and healthier.

So, here we are with a new and improved blog! I’m so glad you’re here with me!

 

What You’ll Find

Norwex has done so much to improve my life and the lives of my customers and I’m hoping to share it with you as well! But this isn’t a blog just about Norwex. Together we’ll explore ways to:

  • Reduce the use of chemicals in our daily lives
  • Make household tasks easier – so we spend less time cleaning and more time living!
  • Improve the quality of life – not just for ourselves but for our friends, families and loved ones, too!
  • Inspire each other to make big changes!
