2/ Norwex with Tracy Vanderlugt

Photo_Showing_Norwex.jpgI am a big fan of Norwex products and what they stand for! I still believe there are times where you just gotta pull the bleach out BUT its nice to have a company that stands for chemical free cleaning that is safer for our family and home!

To make it even better, one of my besties is now selling Norwex and she always speaks so highly of the products and loves how it is safe for her kids to even use! Cause who doesn’t want an option for kids to clean too?

One of my favorite Norwex products is the Dusting Mitt and one of you is going to win one!! The dusting mitt can be used wet or dry and is great for simple dusting around the house, blinds, screens and hard to dust areas. It is made with dense, plush fibers that will  hold dust and other dust-related allergens and not let them go!IMG_7149.jpgBONUS! This is so easy for kids to use! My kids love walking around the house dusting with it and it not only is helpful, but it keeps them from spraying a dusting spray into puddles on my coffee table.IMG_7156_1.jpgTracy is always offering deals and giveaways on her Facebook page so go show her some love at Tracy’s Norwex VIP Group!

    Joined. Mom of three, work with your husband at church…always wanted to be a stay at home mom and enjoy working at church. Recently quit my full time job of 14 years to stay home and took up a part time job at their school. Love reading blogs that help me feel normal when I mess up and do dumb things or feel like I had a mom fail.
