Are you looking for cleaning products that are safe for kids to use?
I spent years in the classroom trying to keep kids away from cleaning products because we had to use bleach solutions and other cleaning products that weren’t safe for kids. But, I always wanted to get kids involved in cleaning (because they wanted to help!), so I’d let them “help” with sponges and water before I went in with the cleaners. Little did I know that my kids could have been helping with norwex cleaning products years ago, but I’ll get to that in a minute…
We received a free cloth to do this review, but all thoughts and opinions are my own – read our disclosure policy here 🙂
So, what I didn’t realize is that letting kids use sponges with water was just spreading germs everywhere…
So, instead of teaching kids how to clean, I was just keeping them busy.
And, that’s why I adore Norwex products because all you need is WATER to help kids clean. Instead of the dirty sponge, kids can actually clean surfaces around the house with a norwex cloth and water <—psst…they can even choose their favorite color cloth to use, too!
The goal of Norwex cleaning products is to “improve the quality of life by radically reducing chemicals in our homes.”
And, as someone who had to use bleach daily at work, I can tell you that I am all about reducing chemicals (and, that horrible smell) from our home! But, norwex isn’t just about cleaning products…

Our Experience with Norwex Cleaning Products
I hate to admit this, but our neighbor dropped hummingbird solution on our table and I *thought* I had cleaned it all with our all purpose cleaner. Well, as my daughter was wiping down this table, I noticed that there was still a sticky residue. With a few scrubs, the stickiness was GONE. It was SO easy and the table has never looked better! Plus, my daughter did NOT want to stop cleaning…she absolutely adored this cloth!
Here’s a few things to talk about with kids and Norwex…
