Use This, Not That: Odor Eliminator

Although I believe most fad diets are simply for the birds, I admit to liking the concept of the popular Eat This, Not That “no diet” food guide. In case you haven’t heard of it, the books suggest simple switch-ups like eating a Dairy Queen Classic Banana Split instead of a Baskin-Robbins Banana Split to save 500 calories and 27 grams of fat. Or eating Domino’s Supreme Pizza instead of Pizza Hut’s Supreme Pizza to save 240 calories and 15 grams of fat.

The idea is that if you’re just aware of the facts, you will make smarter choices painlessly and then big change (weight loss) will seem to happen effortlessly. I see using Norwex as a similar plan. When trying to tackle an enormous task (like turning your cleaning “green”) you may feel overwhelmed and stumped!

Swapping one “old” product with one “green” product is the way to go. And little by little,  you will look at yourself and realize you’re 20 pounds lighter! (Oh wait, I’m mixing my examples.) You’ll realize you’re cleaning your whole house without chemicals! And you won’t believe how easy the switch was!

Today, let me suggest an easy swap. Use Norwex Odor Eliminator, not Any-Name-Aerosal-Odor-Eliminator-Slash-Air-Neutralizer. You know, like the Glade or Febreeze aerosol sprays. While they surely get the job done, they are also putting a lot of unwanted chemicals into your air in the process. Not to mention the use of CFC’s in aerosol sprays, which harm the environment. If CFC’s aren’t used, usually hyrdofluorocarbons are used. They are better than CFC’s, but still something to avoid.

Giving up your aerosol sprays doesn’t mean you have to leave your guests to the “Oh no, what do I do now before the next person uses this bathroom?!” panic. Norwex Odor Eliminator is the solution as it knocks out the source of nasty odors (instead of just covering them up). The solution is highly concentrated, so you mix 1 part Odor Eliminator with 7 parts water. Ringing in at just $13.99 for a 16.9 ounce bottle, it is sure to last a long time and be worth your while!

I quickly mixed up a batch and poured it into two tiny spray bottles for each bathroom and one normal-sized spray bottle that I store under the kitchen sink. I use it to spritz the air or the bottom of the trash can whenever needed. Works like a charm. I really like that there’s an initial fresh scent when squirted, but it doesn’t linger. The odor is gone in a flash, but luckily you’re not left with a headache-enducing perfume smell either.

So use this, not that.
