Crystal Deodorant - 7 Months Later

Some of you may have read my initial post about the Norwex Crystal Deodorant.  Well, it has been 7+ months since I started using it and here is where I'm at with it.

You can see that there is still quite a bit left.  Since I've started using the crystal deodorant, I haven't had to use anything else.  It has worked really well.
My only complaint is the BO smell** that it takes on.   The smell doesn't transfer back to me so I can still use it when it smells like that, but it's not the way I like to start my day.  I bought some coconut oil last week and soaked it in that for a while.  That has helped so far.  I'm not sure yet how often I'll have to do that if I want to keep it odor free.  So, while this is a bit of a pain, I still feel better knowing that this is much better for my body than the alternative.

Veggie & Fruit Scrub Cloth: Carrots

Ever notice the waxy feel your apples have?  You don't need to spray stuff on them to remove that.  Just grab the Veggie & Fruit Scrub Cloth.  Carrots provide a great visual of what this cloth can do.
I took two carrots out of the fridge for a good side by side visual.  Here they are after I ran them under water, but did not scrub.
Then I used the Veggie & Fruit Scrub Cloth to scrub the carrot on the right.  You can certainly tell which one was scrubbed.  I've stopped peeling carrots if I'm throwing them into something I'm cooking.  I just scrub with the Veggie & Fruit Scrub Cloth, chop, and toss them in!

When I wash apples, I run them under water and dry them with the Veggie & Fruit Scrub cloth and that removes all of the wax from them.  This cloth also works great on potatoes. 

I even have a couple of customers who love this cloth for doing dishes.  They say it provides just the right amount of scrub without scratching.
