The Dirt On Dirt

I’ve often wondered if it was just my imagination that my house hasn’t been as dusty since I started using the Norwex Microfiber Mitt. I mean, maybe because it’s a big fluffy glove and in a weird way it’s kinda fun to wear (so I dust more often). Perhaps, but I think there’s more to it than that.

When surfaces are left moist and wet after cleaning, only the water component of your cleaning solution evaporates leaving broken-down dirt, grime and chemicals to dry on the surface. So when I used my dusting Pledge and a worn out or dryer-ate-its-match sock, stuff was left behind. And this left-behind stuff attracted dust, germs, and dirt, hence making the surface dusty again faster.

The definition of clean is to remove all forms of contaminants from a surface leaving it in as original condition as possible. This means that in order to leave surfaces clean we cannot leave residuals behind on them. Residuals attract dirt. And when I use just my Norwex Microfiber Mitt, nothing is left behind on the surface.

So even though I often enjoy buzzing around the house with the big, blue dust mitt on my hand, I’m happy to stretch the time between that excitement out as much as possible!
