It’s not that I disliked washing my vehicle “the old fashioned way” with a water hose, a bucket of soapy water and a big soppy sponge… I actually found it quite therapeutic. An opportunity to enjoy some alone time with the outdoors…and my car! (Ohhhh, how I would swoon over that car.) But, I digress…
My first introduction to Norwex MicroFiber was with the EnviroCloth & Window/Polishing Cloth Set. It was love at first use! And as a matter of fact, the first place I use them was in my SUV to clean the dashboard and all it’s gadgets and knobs, and of course, the windows. The result was mind-blowing! I had to have more of these amazing cloths, so I booked a party, of course. The night of my party, I decided to sign up as a consultant, because I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get all the freebies. All I wanted to do was stock my cabinet with as much Norwex as I could get…. Even though I had only used one cloth so far, I was hooked!
In this bunch of freebie stuff was an adorably cute and cuddly, fluffy green mitt. This poof of puffy microfiber fingers was irresistibly intriguing to look at and touch, it actually made me smile, but to wash my car with it? C’mon! I knew the EnviroCloth did a spectacular job cleaning the inside of my car with just water, but that’s an entirely different kind of dirty, right? I wasn’t convinced. So, the cloth sat in my closet…for years.
That’s right. Two summers passed before I had heard enough testimonials from other happy Car Wash Mitt users before I gave it a try. And, quite honestly, I was still a bit skeptical, but the time had come. So, I filled a gallon bucket with water, tossed the green fluffy thing into the bucket and marched out to the driveway. It was a nice warm sunny day, perfectly therapeutic…what did I have to lose.
I flopped the sopping mitt onto the roof of my car with the “finger-like” side downward to grab the dirt. Swooshed it over every inch, then wrung out the mitt and went over the roof with the “smooth” side to remove any excess water. Then, I paused to watch as the rooftop dried quite quickly, and to my amazement, steak-free! This was a good sign, so I moved on to the hood and trunk areas, then the side panels, the front grill and even the tire wells and rims… everything. I remember making an audible “huft” sound to signal I had done my part, as to dare the finished car results to prove the efficacy of the cloths.
I dumped out the dirty water into my lawn (which I had no issue with as there were no chemicals in it), went into the house to return the bucket and mitt and announced to my husband that I had just washed the car, proudly adding that it only took me about 15 minutes. I then invited him out to inspect my work, not really knowing what the true result would be.
Would I sound dramatic if I say the results were jaw-dropping? I will admit I felt a little giddy. The only issue I had was that the windows, mirrors and chrome were spotted. A result of washing and drying in the afternoon sun. It was an easy resolve. Now, when I wash I also use the Car Cloth to quickly “shammy” the car dry. No more spots!
Not that it takes two to wash the car, but my husband and I have established quite the routine. He does the green Car Wash Mitt on the exterior while I EnviroCloth the interior. I then finish the exterior windows and mirrors with my Polishing Cloth. It takes us literally less than 10 minutes. We do this together weekly. Not that we have to, and not because it’s a big chore… because it’s therapeutic.
In a Nutshell;
The Car Wash Mitt & Car Cloth are both made of superior Norwex microfiber which allows you to achieve a real clean without the need for added toxic chemical cleaners. All you need is the water out of your faucet!
I have also used the Car Wash Mitt to clean our house siding, the patio rails, outdoor furniture, and my girlfriend absolutely loves it for her motorcycle! And, I use the Car Cloth in my bathroom to shammy the glass shower doors streak-free. The uses for this fluffy green mitt and window cloth are only bounded by your needs and imagination … don’t let the “car” title limit you.
The Car Wash Mitt & Cloth, like all Norwex microfiber, saves you time & money by eliminating the need to buy and pre-mix additional products. It also lessens water consumption, the disposal of toxic chemicals into our environment and their containers into our landfill. And most important of all, reduces your exposure to unnecessary toxic chemicals.
There’s so much more to share!
