It’s not unusual for me to walk into a mess at the end of the day: my sister is absolutely ON POINT with her temporary nanny position, but 4 & 6 year olds aren’t perfect, and they can only be corralled into cleaning so much.
So whatever, I thought, this gong show can be dealt with after swimming lessons. NBD.
They got their suits on, I packed the towels (more than one this time – oops!), and told them 800 times to put their shoes on. Just as we were headed out the door, I turned around, and I saw this:
That’s right. That’s a permanent-sharpie drawing on my white paint. On the white paint in the house that we need to list for rental interest in the next month, because we’re moving a province away.
Are you kidding me, child? I know there has been a lot of change; I understand acting out and the root causes for it. But CAN YOU NOT USE PERMANENT SHARPIE ON THE WALL!!!??
“That’s going to take a lot of primer to cover up,” replied Derek, in response to my one-picture-one-angry-emoji text.
So we went to swimming, and the girls I have purchased Norwex through over the last several years strongly suggested I try cleaning paste to remove the marker. Cleaning Paste is a non-toxic pump-up-the-greatness magic THING that takes out everything.
AND. GUESS WHAT. IT WORKED.
No paint was removed, but all the sharpie was gone. Even with the kids “helping” me, the whole thing was done in less than five minutes.
That was the day I decided to move from consuming and just loving Norwex to sharing it with everyone. I always knew it was amazing, and as a lazy cleaner, I loved that it makes cleaning easier.
But in the moments between renovation and moving stress, full-time workload, and SHARPIE ON THE WALL, when it made life, really, hours (primer!?) easier, that was that. People need to know, I thought, and I LOVE to talk.
Plus, I found out that Norwex pays a 35% Commission!
So here I am, loud and proud: you need this in your life, and if you don’t want to buy it from me, that’s totally ok. I am available to talk to ANYONE about this product: don’t be shy!
