Are You Frustrated With Norwex Prices? Do They Feel Like A Scam?

Posted on

Everyone is wondering if Norwex is a scam and

WHY are the Norwex prices SO high…

The product really is amazing.  Removes over 99% of bacteria from your hard surfaces. The Antibac Norwex cloth has silver embedded into it’s fibers and cleans exceptionally well.

Did you catch the coupon code at the end?   Sah-weet deal!

So why are people feeling scammed?

Because their prices are SO high.

Below Are Some Examples Of The New Norwex Prices…

1. Silver Embedded

  • Norwex antibac cloth (with silver costs) $16.99.
  • Antibacterial cloth (Professional E-Cloths) over at MyEcloth costs $11.99. That’s a full $5 difference in price between two cloths that both do the same job of picking up more than 99% of bacteria with just water.

Norwex antibac cloth costs 42% more than an e-cloth® antibacterial cloth.  Is Norwex a ripoff? maybe…

2. Cleaning Paste

  • Norwex Cleaning Paste: costs $31.99 for 6.7 oz, which works out to $4.73 per oz.
  • Universal Stein, sold by e-cloth: costs $29.95 for 17 oz, which works out to $1.76 per oz.
  • Shaklee Scour-Off™ Heavy Duty Paste:  costs $8.10 for 9 oz, which works out to $0.90 oer oz. That’s a difference of $3.83 per oz between two products that do the same job! This means that for an equivalent 6.7 oz, you’re paying $25.66 more for Norwex.

3. Detergent

  • Norwex sells a low-phosphate (3%) laundry detergent, and in 2011 it came in a 2kg bag for $29.99. That changed, and now it only comes in a 1kg bag for $21.99.

At first you thought that Norwex detergent is cheaper than before, but if you take into account the smaller bag size, the newer price for an equivalent 2kg of detergent is $43.98.
This is a 46.6% price increase. Is Norwex a ripoff? maybe…

4. Enzyme Cleaner

  • Norwex sells several very effective enzyme-based cleaners that have been repackaged in smaller bottles for 2012.

Again, the prices seem lower, but they have actually increased.

DeScaler for Limescale and Rust
2011 – 500ml for $37.99 (7.6 cents per ml)
2012 – 350ml for $31.99 (8.6 cents per ml)
13% price increase.

Carpet Stain Buster
2011 – 500ml for $32.99 (6.5 cents per ml)
2012 – 350ml for $27.99.99 (8 cents per ml)
21% price increase.

Norwex alternatives – what can you use instead of Norwex?

If you find that Norwex prices are feeling like a “Norwex Scam or Ripoff”, there are some great green cleaning alternatives out there that you can use instead:

1. e-cloth® cleaning system

This high-quality antibacterial microfiber has clear research to show it’s a great Norwex alternative. It picks up more than 99% of bacteria with just water, and a e-cloth® Professional Antibacterial Cloth with silver is at least $5 cheaper than a Norwex antibac cloth.

2. Shaklee natural cleaning products

Shaklee has been in the green cleaning business for more than 50 years, and they offer number of time-tested healthy cleaning products for very affordable prices.

Yes, Norwex products are great. They really work. But they’re not the only green cleaners on the block, and Norwex prices are outrageous in comparison to other green cleaning products that work just as well. It’s no wonder some people are talking about the idea of a Norwex Ripoff!


Scams – Is Norwex a Scam? Is E-Cloth a Scam?

So, you probably just got done seeing how the Norwex Enviro or Ecloth Microfiber works and are wondering if it is really true… right?


A friend is raving about how amazing these cloths are and you are skeptical that anything could clean better than cotton/bleach or windex/paper towels.

Here are some common questions I hear:

  • Is it really true that microfiber picks up and holds dirt, bacteria, and grease better than cotton?
  • Do high end microfibers like e-cloth and norwex really perform better than the regular ones in the supermarkets?
  • How is there silver in the fibers and why is that a good thing?

First let me say that Norwex is not a scam, neither is ecloth a scam. They are two different companies. Norwex is an MLM (meaning the distributors get paid on multi-levels of compensation). Norwex prices are higher than ecloth to help compensate for paying multiple people. Ecloth is a traditional style business, like a brick’n mortar business (store front style).

Ecloth has their regular line of cloths and a Professional line of cloths. The Professional line has the natural micro silver embedded into the fibers. Norwex also has these silver embedded cloths, they call them the Antibac Enviro Cloths. Ecloth guarentees their Professional line of cloths for up to 1,000 washes. That is many years worth of use! And, no, the silver does NOT wash out of the fibers. They are secure in the tiny fibers of the cloth, killing the bacteria that your cloth is picking up from your surfaces you are cleaning.

So, is it really true that these high quality microfibers really pick up and clean better than cotton cloths?

Yes,!  Click here to see a diagram, explaining how it works.

Do high end , better quality microfiber cloths like Norwes and Ecloth really work better than the cheap ones in the super markets, supply stores and Don Aslett?

Norwex, How Does It Stand Up To The E-Cloth Microfiber?

Norwex Antibac cloths work great, but doesn’it feel like Norwex is a bit of a scam when they charge two or three times as much as E-Cloth?

Silliker research proves: E-cloth removes over 99% of bacteria. New research proves that using only water, E-cloths remove over 99% of bacteria, including E-coli and Listeria. E-cloth commissioned the internationally accredited Silliker Group to conduct research, which tested the cleaning power of water and E-cloths on hard surfaces, that had been contaminated with different common bacteria.

Using just water, the results showed that the cloths removed over 99% of bacteria, locking them away inside the cloths special fibers, where they stay until the cloths’ are rinsed. Further the tests showed that, after a rinse with warm water, E-cloths re-introduced just 0.01% of bacteria back onto a sterile surface. These results further enhance E-cloth’s already unrivalled reputation for water based cleaning.

Chemicals are not needed to remove thick grease, dirt, and bacteria from all around the home and surfaces are left sparkling, smear and lint free.
