Removes up to 99% of bacteria

Norwex® Microfiber delivers a revolutionary clean without using harmful chemicals that can affect your health and that of your family, your pets and the environment. Our premium microfiber cloths remove up to 99% of bacteria from surfaces using only water when following proper care and use instructions.

Mechanical vs. chemical cleaning

Instead of relying on chemicals, we use physical power to clean. Norwex Microfiber lifts, grabs and traps dirt and grime, and can remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface using only water.* Chemical-based wipes and cleaners work to sanitize or disinfect—if you follow the directions properly—but they can leave behind a harmful residue.

Microfiber 101

The more microfiber is split, the finer the fiber and the more absorbent it becomes. Just add water, and with the millions of pockets formed between the strands, our microfiber is incredible at grabbing, lifting and trapping even the smallest particles like bacteria. When dry, all those tiny fibers rubbing together create an electrostatic charge that acts like a magnet on negatively charged dust, which may contain pet hair and dander, mold or pollen spores and more.

Standard Fibers


1/200th the thickness of a human hair

Some microfiber is split to a mere 1/6th the thickness of a human hair, while Norwex Microfiber is split to 1/200th. So, it’s great at grabbing and holding onto debris, including up to 99% of bacteria.* And because our cloths are so dense with microfiber, they pick up more and last longer. All those tiny fibers also make our microfiber super soft and absorbent— it can hold up to seven times its weight in water. Our Testing >

Our powerful baclock® micro silver
antibacterial agent

For thousands of years, silver ions (Ag+) have been used for their antibacterial properties. Our exclusive BacLock* helps self-purify the wet Norwex Microfiber cloth as it dries. Fungus, mold and bacterial odors are inhibited, so you can use the cloth longer before laundering. We embed the BacLock silver agent into our microfiber yarn versus simply coating the cloth, so it’s longer-lasting. Our Testing >

*BacLock is our exclusive antibacterial agent for self-cleansing purposes only. The agent is solely designed to inhibit bacterial odor, mold and mildew growth within the product.
