Q. What makes Norwex Microfibre a preferred choice?
Norwex microfibre is a blend of polyester and polyamide. This fiber is 1/200th the size of a strand of human hair. When this high-quality microfibre is combined with the right knitting process, it creates an extremely effective cleaning material. This material can hold up to seven times its weight in matter. Used dry the static effect created enhances the microfibre’s ability to attract dirt and dust particles. As you lightly wipe the surface, the microfibre attracts and draws up even the smallest particles of dust, trapping them in the fibres. Used wet the microfibres work together to give an excellent cleaning effect. Wet, wring and wipe away dirt and debris from all washable surfaces. For spot removing, spray water on the surface being cleaned. Norwex microfibre is backed with an exceptional Warranty of 2 years or 500 washings.

Q. What are the proper washing and care instructions for Norwex Microfibre?
To save the environment and reduce the use of detergents, we suggest that slightly dirty cloths and mops be washed with a little Dishwashing Liquid under warm running water and used again before laundering.
Launder microfibre with other lint-free laundry
Use only Norwex Ultra POWER Plus™ or another environmentally friendly detergent without fillers and bleach to clean our products
Do not use bleach or fabric softener on microfibre. Bleach and fabric softeners destroy the product’s ability to clean effectively
To deep clean, remove stubborn stain or to remove odors from cloths, Norwex microfibre can be boiled for 10 minutes to allow fibres to swell and release the debris.
Do not use on anti-glare coated surfaces
Use our Rubber Brush to remove dirt and debris from the mop pads between laundering
Q. Where can I use Norwex Microfibre?
The Norwex cleaning system can be used most anywhere cleaning is required – home, office, vehicles, recreation equipment and even personal care.
Q. Why do Microfibre cloths sometimes smell?
Microfibre cloths may smell if the proper care instructions are not followed or if the water in your home or office is hard and high in mineral content. Only use environmentally friendly soaps without fillers when you are laundering to prevent the microfibre pores from being clogged and causing odor. If your cloths smell we recommend trying one of the following suggestions: washing them in hot water, soaking overnight in Norwex Ultra POWER Plus™ laundry detergent and washing in hot water, or boiling for 10 minutes to remove any build-up on the fibres.
Q. Is there a proper way to clean with the mop?
Always dry mop with the Dry Mop Pad or Dry Superior Mop Pad prior to using the Wet Mop Pad. The yellow mop pads are for “dry” cleaning, and the blue mop pads which are antibacterial are for “wet” cleaning. Be sure to move the mop in a wide figure-8 pattern from left to right in front of you, bringing the mop towards you as you back up so that you will be moving the dirt and debris in one direction. When wet mopping, moisten the mop with clean water before using. If the mop is too wet, wring it out prior to use.
Q. What is the difference between the Dry Mop Pad and the Dry Superior Mop Pad?
The Dry Mop Pad is made of 100% polyester while the Dry Superior Mop Pad is made of 100% Norwex microfibre and boasts all the benefits of microfibre in its ability to pickup and hold the smallest particles of dust, pet hair, micro particles and debris and hold water.

Lock the base by pushing the green lever until it locks into position.
Q. How do I assemble the mop?
