Since we began selling e-cloth here at Milk Allergy Mom four years ago, many of you have asked how e-cloth compares to Norwex.
That’s a great question. I wondered the same thing as a Norwex customer and did a lot of research before I eventually started purchasing e-cloth.
Here is what I found.
Norwex is out of Norway. e-cloth is out of the U.K.
Both originated in Europe and have been around since about 1995.
And both, in recent years, have made their way into the United States. Thank goodness!
Sadly, we Americans are very slow to give up toxins but our health depends on it that we do!
So here are more comparisons between the two popular microfiber companies, and you can decide which one is right for you.
No matter what you determine, I hope you start your toxin-free journey today! You’ll be so glad you did.
E-CLOTH: direct to customers
NORWEX: home party
E-CLOTH: 1/200 the diameter of human hair
NORWEX: 1/200 the diameter of human hair (2013 catalog), 1/100th (2012 catalog)
E-CLOTH: 80% polyester / 20% polyamide
NORWEX: 70% Polyester / 30% Polyamide
E-CLOTH: Korea (fair trade)
NORWEX: China (fair trade)
E-CLOTH: Removes over 99% of common household bacteria (world-renowned Silliker lab)
NORWEX: I could not find published scientific research
E-CLOTH: 300 washings
NORWEX: 2 years
E-CLOTH: no longer using silver becuase bacteria is removed with rinsing and drying.
NORWEX: uses embedded silver “solely designed to inhibit bacterial odor, mold, and/or mildew growth” (Norwex catalog)

Obviously, there are both similarities and differences between e-cloth and Norwex.
For me, the deciding factor came down to cost.
While I can appreciate the education that comes from home party formats, I just didn’t want to pay into that extra layer when I can do my own research.
And I’m here to share that research and education with you.
But if you prefer supporting the home party format and feel better about embedded silver, that’s cool.
We can still be friends!
Here at Milk Allergy Mom we tout e-cloth as an option for those who want more affordable options.
And since our food allergy, dust allergy, asthmatic, eczema family has successfully been using e-cloth for over four years, I can confidently say that I am SO glad we found and started using e-cloth ourselves.
Our hundreds of customers agree.
Don’t just take my word for it, check out some other friends who love e-cloth!
