Cleaning…. oh how I hate you. Remember the days when you washed the floor and they’d sparkle for at least a few days, or cleaned a mirror and you could see yourself for more than 1 hour? Unfortunately, Mess-Monsters now inhabit my home and not only do they create messes at incredible speed, they are also masters at making messes that take million years to clean. My solution: find tools to make cleaning as easy as possible or, lets be real for a moment, it won’t get done. Welcome to my latest attempt to keep my sanity: the Norwex Tile Mop!
A little about Norwex
About 5 years ago a friend of mine introduced me to these miracle cleaning cloths, Envirocloths (stay tuned for an upcoming review), and I have been hooked ever since. According to the Norwex website, “Our line of effective and green cleaning products will save you time & money and contribute to a better environment. Norwex microfiber goes beyond “surface clean” with the innovative use of silver particles integrated into synthetic microfiber cloth.” Its the marriage of their durable microfibre clothes with silver that makes Norwex products so amazing. By using these clothes with only water you are doing some serious cleaning without the use of all of those cleaning solutions, paper towels and polishes. They say the average household spends about $600-$800 annually on cleaning products. Norwex will reduce that by 90%!
The Norwex Mop System
Using only water, the Norwex Mop cleans and picks up the tiniest particles on almost all floor surfaces you would find in a home including ceramic tile, wood, laminate, vinyl and linoleum. You can even use it for ceilings, walls and high windows.
For best results, use the entire mop collection. Start with the dry mop pad to collect all leftover dust and particles after vacuuming and then use the wet mop pad or the tile mop pad with water to clean the floors. For a little $ savings, I only purchased the telescopic handle and the tile mop pad. I figured, because of the lazy factor, I realistically wouldn’t regularly do the dry mop step. I would see better results on my floors by using both but the dry mop wouldn’t be worth the money if it just sat in the closet.

Norwex Tile Mop Pros:
- So fast and easy! No prep work needed to get ready to wash your floors. Just rinse pad under water and you are ready!
- No streaks! I have used steam mops for the last 3 years and they always left steaks. The Norwex Tile Mop polishes and leaves absolutely no streaks! My floors look sexy!
- Mop base is quite wide so it takes very little time to do you whole floor
- 1 mop pad will clean your whole floor. When you are done, just hang to dry and then its ready to use again. The silver kills the bacteria in the pad in 24 hours. You only need to wash after a few uses. This just seems very strange to me so I still wash almost every use but that’s just me.
- You can use it for more than just your floors. These cloths are great at cleaning high windows, ceilings and walls too.
- No electrical cord to trip over or get tangled.
Norwex Tile Mop Cons:
- Wowzers it’s pricey! $150 CDN for just the mop and the tile pad.
- I am not sure if it is just me and the way I frantically clean before the mess-monsters return but as I am pushing the mop sometimes it flips over and I now have the hard mop handle scratching the floor.
- The stuck on food or stains on the floor don’t come up with the mop. I end up getting on my hands and knees to scrub. The steam mop did a much better job in this regard.
According to Amanda… the verdict is:
I love my new Norwex Tile Mop. I love how easy it is to use and the results I get. I love that I am cutting back on harsh cleaning chemicals in the house, protecting the environment and I love that I am saving some money with not having to purchase them anymore. What I don’t love is the price. Is it worth $150…? I am still not 100% sold. Although I didn’t love the streaks on my floor with the steam mop it was pretty easy to use and only cost $100. I have been using the Norwex Tile Mop now for 2 months and am still on the fence…
