Why does my Norwex cloth stink?

The Norwex enviro cloth is a very tightly woven microfiber cloth. That's why when you boil it, your water gets so dirty, even with clean cloths. Boiling also helps remove detergent build-up on your cloth which can lead to the stink.


Then, how do you get the smell out of Norwex cloths?

3 Steps to Cure a Stinky Norwex or e-cloth

  1. Boil your cloth(s) with baking soda. I put about 1/4 cup baking soda in with 2-3 litres of water. Let it boil for 10-15 minutes stirring regularly.
  2. Drain the water and then boil again with 1/4 cup of vinegar. Again, 10-15 minutes, stirring regularly.
  3. Launder it.

Subsequently, question is, do Norwex cloths kill bacteria? Norwex and e-cloth do not seem to grow bacteria as well as a cotton cloth (in the plastic bag experiments) but can still have a lot of bacteria in them even after hanging dry for 24 hours. A hot sanitize cycle in the washer and dryer with Norwex detergent does a good job killing germs in cloths.

In this regard, how do you clean a Norwex cloth?
