Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on March 10, 2014
I have sold both Norwex and e-cloth products. I know these products inside-out and backwards and swear by them. They work incredibly and last forever.

The truth is, both products are wonderful and will change the way you clean but e-cloths perform as well as Norwex at a fraction of the cost.


I see a lot of comments on Amazon about e-cloth vs Norwex and how many users prefer the Norwex cloths because "the silver in the Norwex kills bacteria and sterilizes surfaces". It is important to know - and PLEASE BE AWARE that - the silver in your Norwex cloth does NOT kill bacteria on surfaces (i.e. counters, sinks, tables, toilets etc.). E-cloths and Norwex cloths work the same way: the microfiber in the cloths picks up bacteria (over 99.9% in the case of e-cloths), dirt and grime and it is held/trapped in the cloth until you rinse it out or launder it. E-cloth has very good lab test results showing that when you rinse the cloth well after you use it, over 99% of bacteria picked up by the cloth is rinsed out.

The silver in your Norwex cloths only acts to speed up the killing of bacteria IN THE CLOTH - NOT ON THE SURFACE. The only reason you would need this is if you're not rinsing your cloth after you use it, because like I mentioned above, if you rinse the cloth after you use it, the bacteria is rinsed out.

I'm a realist and know that we all have quirky preferences and there are some people that will prefer Norwex over e-cloth (it's like a Coke/Pepsi thing - only with one being much cheaper than the other in this case). There is no disputing that they both clean well. But if you want a great cloth with a fantastic warranty that will clean your house like nothing else and is very reasonably priced, you can't go wrong with e-cloth.

I've written a number of product comparisons on my blog as well as three posts about: (1) why I switched from Norwex to ecloth, (2)how the silver in Norwex works and (3) when and how to launder ecloths/Norwex. Amazon won't let me post a link here but if you google: CLEANINUPKATE, you'll reach my blog and then just search for "confessions", "launder", and/or "5 things" to get to the important posts.
