We love to gather and celebrate at the holidays. And while you still may not be hosting at the same level as years past, you always want to make visitors feel special. Here are seven ways to give them the five-star guest treatment, featuring our new limited-edition holiday products and some of our year-round faves. Remember to treat yourself, too.
A clean home is a welcoming home.
Before company arrives, give your rooms a good cleaning. Our new limited-edition microfiber products will get you in the cleaning spirit, and your family and guests will appreciate how thoughtful you are to clean without harmful chemicals—Norwex® Microfiber removes up to 99% of bacteria from a surface using only water.* Of course, you’ll love the time you save using such an efficient system and the savings you’ll see by eliminating chemical cleaners and wasteful paper towels. Our EnviroCloth® and Counter Cloth Napkins in mushroom with sea mist trim and our festive reindeer-themed Window Cloth will help keep your home merry and bright.
Give guest-room mattresses a thorough clean. Norwex Mattress Cleaner’s enzyme-powered, biodegradable formula effectively removes organic matter from body oils, pet dander and other contaminants. Use on pillows, comforters, fabric furniture and pet beds, too.
Deep clean guest bathrooms. Our highly concentrated, phosphate-free Bathroom Cleaner with biodegradable ingredients makes quick work of soap scrum and grime.
Instead of masking lingering odors with products containing harmful chemicals, use Odour Eliminator. Its fast-acting enzymes and biodegradable ingredients remove odors at their source naturally.
Then, add a festive feel with scents free from synthetic fragrances. Favorites include our new, limited-edition Sugar Plum collection, homemade potpourri (try pear and cinnamon sticks) and pomanders (poke whole cloves into an orange).
Put out the welcome mat. Literally.
Now’s the perfect time to put our super-absorbent microfiber Entry Mat at every entry door. It helps trap dirt and other pollutants—especially important since up to 85% of contaminants are brought indoors in the first four steps.
Make entryways and porches instantly more appealing with natural elements like wreaths, seasonal berries and garlands of evergreens. After the holidays, they can be used for mulch or compost.
Invest in dreamy bed linens.
Take stock of your bedding. If it’s seen better days, it may be time to update. Our luxurious Sheets and Pillowcases, made of silky smooth, moisture-absorbing, vegan microfiber, will have guests feeling like they’re staying at an upscale hotel.
Another tip to make guests feel like royalty: Layer bedding—comforters, duvets, throws—to account for different sleeping temperatures. Make it cozy with textured accents like faux fur pillows or a chunky knit throw.
To reduce harmful chemicals on items that come into contact with your skin, like bedding, wash them in our limited-edition lavender-scented Ultra-Power Plus Laundry Detergent. Then toss them in the dryer with our new limited-edition Fluff and Tumble Dryer Balls with Sheep Design. They reduce drying time and help reduce wrinkles and static, plus there’s no need for chemical-laden dryer sheets. Following instructions for use, add a few drops of our limited-edition Orange Sandalwood Essential Oil Blend to each dryer ball to add a fresh, natural scent to your loads.
Make showering a spa-like experience.
Our limited-edition Ultra-Plush Towel Set provides everything you want in premium bath and body towels and cloths: They’re super-absorbent, sumptuously soft and seriously chic. Plus, the exclusive BacLock®** technology keeps them fresher longer. (Hostess alert: You won’t need to launder as often.) The Body and Face Pack cleanses skin using only water, so your guests have no need for harsh cleansers or drying soaps.
Stock the shower with salon-quality hair care products. Our Lysere™ Nourishing Hair Care Collection epitomizes clean beauty, following the strictest standards for safety and product integrity—while delivering amazing results.
Give bathrooms a dose of seasonal cheer.
Our limited-edition Snowflake Chenille Hand Towel is destined to be a holiday favorite, and thanks to the BacLock**, you can use it again and again between washings.
The limited-edition Snowflake & Sugar Plum Hand Wash Set provides a multisensory experience: Smell (the sweet scent of sugar plums), sight (the beautiful, frosted glass bottle) and touch (the feel of softer, smoother skin).
And no guest bath should be without our limited-edition Sugar Plum Toilet Spray. Natural essential oils create a fresh-smelling barrier that traps odors before they begin. You’re welcome.
Surprise guests with luxury hotel-like amenities.
Start with the essentials: Think spare hangers, luggage rack, hair dryer, iron, phone charger. Then go next-level with special touches guaranteed to make any stay that much more luxurious.
