… not quite apples to apples. I talked about in another post how I got started using Shaklee and Norwex and that I chose to try some of the Shaklee products first because they were cheaper.
I want to add a disclaimer here. I have a few friends that sell Norwex and I even own some of the Norwex products. There are so many great products out there and we all use them for different reasons. I don’t want anyone to think I’m bashing another person or company. I’m simply stating my experience and understanding. If it helps great. If not, that’s fine too. I’d love to have your questions and comments.
Scour Off Vs. Cleaning Paste
|Shaklee Sour Off||Norwex Cleaning Paste|
|Great for cleaning tubs, ovens, sinks, and tiles and it will even remove rust, and is great for cleaning these surfaces: copper, grout, cement, ceramic, and imitation marble.||Removes rust stains, hard water stains, scuff marks, permanent marker, dirt, grime, soap scum and more|
|Not recommended for glass||Safe on glass|
|It does not contain chlorine, bleach, or dye. Nontoxic. Phosphate-free||Poison- and phosphate-free|
|Made from natural mineral abrasives and biodegradable cleaning agents.||Contains the active ingredients Marble Flour, Natural Soap and traces of Coconut Oil|
I feel like these products compare well. I own both and use them both mainly in the kitchen. I have used the cleaning paste on my oven window with an abrasive scrubby and had good results. I have also used a soft cloth with the scour off on the stove top surface. If you use an abrasive sponge with the scour off on a glass surface it will scratch it. I mainly use scour off on my pots and pans in place of bar keepers friend. The paste is a little chalky for me and I have not had the results others claim in getting things off wall and other surfaces.
Shaklee Microfiber vs. Norwex EnviroCloth (Microfiber)
|Shaklee Microfiber||Norwex Microfiber|
|Doesn’t specify||1/200th the size of a human hair|
|No Antibacterial Property||Contains our exclusive BacLock* agent|
|Leaves surfaces clean and lint free.||Has the ability to remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface when following the proper care and use instructions.|
|Super absorbent, microfiber cloth for all purpose cleaning with Basic H2™.||You are instructed to only use water.|
Norwax works by trapping everything in the cloth and then you wash all the germs and such down the sink leaving the surface germ free. They also have silver woven into their cloths so that in 24 hours the cloth is clean again which is suppose to cut down on the need for washing it. It also is not suppose to smell. So here Norwex has the superior product despite the price. I have to say I do not own one. Again because of being frugal, I bought an ecloth. Here is the set I bought from Amazon. It had four microfiber cloths and one window cloth for $28. They do not contain silver but other then that I find them comparable and I use them in the kitchen as a dish rag and when I do my house hold cleaning. For me the anti-bac was not a draw. I also have Shaklee microfiber and use them in the kitchen to wash dishes and such.
Shaklee Window Cloth vs. Norwex Window Cloth
|Shaklee Window Cloth||Norwex Window Cloth|
|Use this super absorbent, microfiber cloth for glass and window cleaning with Basic H2™||Removes EVERYTHING from all surfaces.|
|Leaves windows and mirrors clean and streak- free.||Eliminates residual “chemical muck” left behind by typical cotton cloths and harsh cleaning products|
|To clean windows, mirrors and glass: Add 16 oz. of water in a Get Clean Spray Bottle. Add 2 drops of Basic H2™. Spray on surface and wipe off with a Get Clean Super Microfiber Window Cloth.||To clean glass, lightly mist the surface with water and polish with a dry Window Cloth.|
|No anti bacterial property||BacLock, the micro silver agent in the cloth, goes to work with self-purification properties against mold, fungi and bacterial odor within 24 hours so that it is ready to use again.|
I don’t own the Norwex window cloth. I bought the set of 5 elcloths and it has 4 microfiber and one window cloth. I actually use the Shaklee and the ecloth window cloth. I find them both to work well. Since I use my dryer balls and dry my shaklee window cloth it does pick up the fibers and I will find them on my mirror. I could air dry them but I’m lazy.
I know Norwex is an awesome product and so many people love them. Their cleaning paste does last a long time. I think there are comparable products for the price and I like to have several cloths. Norwex says you can use the same cloth to clean the bathroom and wash dishes but I know that bothers most of us.
Well, there you have it. I will say I do want to buy a Norwex Dusting Mitt. A friend said she went to a party and you just get it wet and wash the screens! So simple. It also stays on your hand well not like the knock off I got at Menards.
