ENJO Households - Chemical free zones.
When I first arrived here in New Zealand 6 years ago, I was rather perplexed to read reports that this beautiful country, with its pure, clean, fresh and green image had one of the highest cancer rates in the world, including bowel cancer.
I was discomfited by the kiwi habit of not rinsing dishes after washing with detergent solution (if it can cut through grease in an instant, what is it doing to my delicate stomach lining?!) and suffered from nose bleeds (something previously alien to me) after cleaning the windows and bathrooms. I did notice that the wind often blew chemical spray back to my face when cleaning outside windows, and hated the acrid smell of toilet bleach and shower cleaners, trying hard to hold my breath whenever I used them. I was alarmed when some shower cleaner I accidently sprayed on the fabric floor mat instantly bleached it (yes, it needed to be potently strong to tackle mould and mildew, what happens when I inhale it?)
So when I first watched an ENJO product demo, I was excited at the sight of seemingly effortless cleaning using only a special fibre and water, and was eager to get my hands on the Supreme Pack. What a miraculous difference it has made to my life!
On cleaning days, I no longer march into the bathroom, fully gloved and armed with a pail full of different chemicals, cloths and scrubs/brushes for glass, tiles, counter tops and the toilet bowl. Now, I can breathe normally as I clean with just the Bathroom Glove and ENJOfil, the Bathroom Maid and a spray bottle of water. Remarkable!
Cleaning the kitchen used to be a real chore, especially when it came to the ventilation hood and splashback. It needed copious amounts of hot soapy water to rigorously rinse the cleaning cloths with, as well as generous sprays of chemical cleaners to get rid of the grease. Still, I was often not satisfied with the results and resorted to putting up a ‘wall’ around the frypan or wok using standing cardboards whenever I cooked anything that spit or splattered. However, success was limited to the height of the cardboard. Invariably, the top half of the splashback was still coated in grease.
The Kitchen Glove and Kitchen Allpurpose Cloth have made a revolutionary change in this once tedious task. Just a quick wipe after cooking each meal has resulted in a squeaky clean ventilation hood, splashback and counter tops. And yes, I have thrown out the grease splattered cardboards. Wonderful!
Cleaning the windows used to be a time consuming task, not helped by my short stature and high windows as well as the groundcover rose bushes just outside the windows. To get to the lower windows, I previously had to wade through the thorny rosebush while to reach the upper panes, I had to balance precariously up the ladder, perched on uneven ground. After cleaning each set of windows, I had to retreat to the laundry room to rinse out the dirt from the cleaning cloths. If this was not done thoroughly enough, I could still see dirty streaks once the glass dried. All these factors meant that window cleaning was a time consuming and cumbersome chore.
The Combiwiper, with its Telescopic Pole, has certainly made this job a lot easier, as I can reach both the top and bottom window panes from the outside the rosebush. No more nightmares of falling off the ladder and falling on top of the rosebush…yay! Also, there is no need to repeatedly rinse the Plus Line fibre, meaning I can now clean all the outside windows in half the time it previously took. Marvellous!
My cleaning duties as a full time housewife are now almost effortless, even enjoyable and more satisfying. I can breathe easy, knowing I am creating a healthier home environment, while saving not only time but also money otherwise spent on power, extra water and chemicals. Thank you ENJO!
