I LOVE my Norwex microfiber cloths – all of them! I use them to clean everything in my house, including myself.
For the first few months after getting them, I thought that “sour cloth syndrome” was a thing of the past – my Norwex cloths never smelled bad – I was a happy cleaner! Within about 4 months, however, my beloved Norwex cloths began to smell sour, just like my cotton cloths – GROSS.
The best way to take care of your Norwex products is giving them a deep clean. Here’s how…
HOW TO DEEP CLEAN NORWEX CLOTHS
(For degreasing and stinky, smelly microfiber cloths)
2. Disolve Norwex Laundry Detergent in the water. I use 1 scoop of detergent (2Tbsp) for every liter of water. Yes, this is WAY more than what you use for a normal load of laundry, but necessary to really deep clean your cloths. You will need to make sure that your cloths have room to move in the water and are completely submerged, so be sure to use enough water and adjust your Laundry Detergent accordingly.
3. Add the cloths, and soak for at least 30 minutes. I also agitate them a little to get the soap and water moving through the fibers.
4. Rinse each cloth thoroughly with hot water, wring the water out, then
5. Dry the cloths – it’s best to toss them in a hot dryer, but you can hang them to dry as well.
You’re going to notice how dirty the water is after the cleaning. A true testament to how amazing they work! lf your Norwex cloths were REALLY smelly, you might need to repeat steps 1-3, until the point where the soapy water isn’t brown when the cloths are mixed in with them.
Your Norwex Microfiber cloths should smell clean and odor free!
