    For those worried about price - it really does pay to have a demo!

    Have a handful of people around and get the greta host rewards. There are exclusive packs for hosts where you can get the basics (bathroom, kitchen , dusting and one floor fibre) then you can use your dollars earned to get another fibre for the floor cleaner and get the actual floor cleaner for half price when someone books. SAVE HEAPS!

    The bathroom glove and miracle used as a 'team' remove dirt and bacteria instead of killing them and leaving a residue behind.
    I have cleaned some pretty grotty bathrooms (including my own) the first thorough deep clean (stripping through teh layers of bulit up scum and chemical residue) might take a little more effort - I use marble paste on THICK soap scum build up and calcium dissolver on the calcium build up and mineral deposits that come with hard water or bore water...but once that is done the fibres really to a great job.
    Really quick and easy.

    The Kitchen is my FAVORITE -- because I have stainless steel appliances and do lots of cooking from scratch so things get pretty greasy and grotty, plus the kids get fnger prints all over the fridge etc.
    The Green fibre was actually invented by Johannes Engel's dad (johannes owns enjo international - beased in Austria - where chemical cleaning is very RARE) ...he used it to remove oil from the water where boats leaked... it woks the same in teh kitchen - grabs and holds onto the grease and grime and doesn't let go of it til it goes through teh wash.
    Using the glove and then the miracle on stainless steel leaves it so shiny without any streaks... and is definitely CLEAN you can feel the difference.

    Dusting gear is awesome - especially for alergy and asthma sufferers - no dust, no dustmites and no fumes.

    If you have all your rooms covered you can look at your pile of microfibre as an investment - similar to a vacuum cleaner... bit of a reasonable outlay - but does a huge job and worth having quality.


    WCM and Acrea - how have you been using the laundry gear? and on what kind of stains?
    It is best used with COLD water - light circular motions from the outside of teh stain - working in - so it doesn't spread.
    Best used WITH the method laundry detergent (although I have reoved a few stains without it) ..it was designed to be used with it.
    Squirt a bit of detergent on stain and leave for a bit - then come back and use cold water to remove it. - best to treat the stain asap - any 'fresh' parts of teh stain can be wiped off with a dry fibre and then add water.
    Personally I have had to still use soaker (I use eco store) for DPs white work shirts.

    The Floor cleaner is one of teh most loved products - I can clean ALL teh hard floors n my house (only have two carpeted bedrooms) with less than 400ml of cold water in a spray bottle.
    Having three kids - I love that I can quickly 'mop' without the hassle of a bucket and then it dries in no time - so I don't have to put them outside for half an hour like I used to.
    Different floor fibres for different floors. Dusting fibre collects dirt, fin dust and hair - great for pet hair if you have them inside. and then wet fibre for cleaning. So EASY and QUICK

    Ok I thought about this overnight, and I think it's amazing how well enjo did with this test and I don't doubt that aspect at all and I do totally agree that you can achieve those results with just water and that's better for our health and the environment but I don't think the woman who used the 99.9% germ killing stuff did it right, with most of those sprays you have to leave them on for a few minutes and I think that's a bit mis-leading. I would be interested to see this test re done if she followed the bottle directions correctly, as a comparison.

    Party plan is my least favourite thing in the world; is there an online catalogue with prices?

    They sell on eBay for about the same as they do new

    - trust me i've checked.

    A kicthen glove is $49 and a miracle is $44 OR you can buy them in a pack. the kitchen essentials pack is $199
    The pack gives you a kitchen glove & miracle, kicthen mini, two all purpose cloths and a fruit & vege cloth.

    you can have a consultant come out and do a 1:1 to show you how to use it and get the best products for your needs...
    OR it can be ordered for you and sent direct to your door.

    RE - the chemical cleaner in the vid - I'm not sure 'exactly' which one t was - guess they can't tell for legal reasons - but most kicthen sprays boast a spray and wipe type of action for use... The thing with chemical cleaners is - ..you are using a chemical (for starters) ..and that chemical not only gves of fumes but leaves a residue behind (and IN that residue are the 'dead germs' unless you rinse off and wipe away) - that residue can enter you food if sprayed on your food prep area...and also serves as an environenment for future bacteria to grow in.
    The residue also gives dust and grime something to 'cling' to - so surfaces look and are dirtier sooner.
    With enjo there s nothing left behind

    To put the price in perspective... I just spent over $40 on dinner for ONE night for our family of five.

    The glove will last for at LEAST 2-3 years.

    [hoping I don't get in trouble from BH]

    ...again you can buy it on it's own or as a reward.

    On it's own the Focus on Floor pack - which is the Pole and 2 fibres of your choice depending on your type of floor - most people get an orange dusting fibre (used dry) and then either a matt or gloss fibre (used damp-wet) . is $279. you also get a trigger spray bottle and laundry bag buying it in a pack.

    (the pole and fibres are normally $99 each on their own)

    Fibres carry a 6month warranty and the hardware a 12 month warranty.
    I have seen a 9 year old fibre - worn well ..and offered to take it from the host to send back for recycling..but she didn't want to part with it!!

    ..there are a whole range of fibres for other things like unsealed floors, concrete and other outdoor areas and decks, and a polishing fibre [at the moment the polishing fibre is FREE to hosts who have a demo before the 14th Feb.]
