Norwex Microfiber Pet Towel and Pet Mitt Review

Today’s article is about the Norwex Microfiber Pet Towel and Pet Mitt. I currently use both products with my 38-lb dog, Wally. Lindsay also tested out the products with her dog, Remy.

Wally loves these soft, microfiber products! He has a love-hate relationship with water and bath time. He lets out a sigh of relief once the water ordeal is over and he gets to snuggle up to a towel!

Norwex creates environmentally friendly household cleaning, personal & pet care products. The products are free from harmful ingredients, and they’re never tested on animals.

Who is Norwex?

Norwex is an innovative company with Norwegian roots whose mission is to “improve quality of life by radically reducing chemicals in our homes.”

The company creates environmentally friendly products that are free from harmful ingredients and never tested on animals.

Norwex carries a plethora of items such as:

  • towels and mitts
  • hand wash
  • face masks
  • shampoos
  • lotions
  • stain removers
  • cleaners
  • food storage containers
  • sheets and pillowcases

You can see all the Norwex pet products here. It’s pretty impressive! Their products would make great gifts.

All of the Norwex cloths are made of microfiber that contain up to 70% recycled materials. They’re durable and great for anyone with allergies and chemical sensitivities, including our pups (and kitties).

The products feature an antibacterial agent known as BacLock that allows them to self-purify within 24 hours and prevent odors from bacteria, mold and mildew growth.

That means that the pet towel and mitt can be used several times before they need to be washed! Unless, of course, you use them after an impromptu doggie romp in the mud and they end up getting super dirty! If that happens, do throw them into the wash right away.

Norwex Microfiber Pet Towel

The Norwex Pet Towel is a lightweight, ultra-absorbent microfiber towel that makes doggie drying a breeze. Especially for pups with a double coat!

The towel features built-in hand pockets. The pockets make holding wiggly pups easy and effective.

Plus, unlike regular towels that are soaked in no-time, the Norwex Pet Towel absorbs water easily and dries quickly. That makes it a great way of keeping water from getting sprayed everywhere when the dog tries to shake off!

Since the pet towel absorbs water so well, it also keeps our pups nice and warm. That feature is particularly useful during the colder months of the year. Wally seems to really enjoy the soft, warm towel.

It comes in graphite grey and measures 23.6″ x 39.4″ (60 cm x 100 cm). Great for any size pup! Learn more here.

Norwex Pet Mitt

The Norwex Pet Mitt is as soft as the towel and made of the same absorbing microfiber material. It’s a mitt you can use wet or dry.

Use the mitt while it’s wet to gently lift dirt off your dog and wipe down dirty paws at the door. For example, after a muddy walk or romp around the dog park or backyard.

Use dry for in-between brushing sessions to remove loose hairs. Or to simply dry your dog’s wet paws at the door after a snowy or rainy walk.

The Norwex pet mitt also comes in graphite grey and measures 8.7″ x 11.8″ (22 cm x 30 cm). That makes it a great size even for dog dads with manly hands! It also has stitching between the fingers for extra control, and it will fit just fine on either hand, your right or your left.

Care instructions for the pet towel & mitt

The towel and the mitt can go into the washing machine, but don’t wash them with bleach or fabric softeners. That’ll damage the microfiber material. They can also go into the dryer, but without dryer sheets. Since they dry quickly, you can also just air-dry them.

If they’re not heavily soiled, simply clean them under running warm water with some dish detergent.

Why I recommend the Norwex pet products

  1. Environment friendly. I’m a sucker for products that are sustainable and gentle on our planet. The Norwex Pet Towel and Pet Mitt check that box. I was also happy to see that my towel and mitt didn’t ship in plastic packaging!
  2. Quality guarantee. Microfiber is a durable material that’s built to last. Plus it gets the job done quickly and effectively! Norwex offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee and refunds, replaces or exchanges faulty products within 60 days of purchase. They also have a 2-year microfiber warranty beyond regular wear and tear.
  3. Style. Both are pretty to look at and their stylish grey color fits into any home design.

Now that we’re in between fall and winter here in North Carolina, I especially appreciate both products and keep them by the front door. That way I can quickly grab them when Wally & I come back from our walks and he needs a quick rub down.

I also use the towel to dry him off when he comes in from the rain in the backyard, and the mitt to wipe down his sandy paws. Easy peasy!

We don’t get a ton of snow here in central North Carolina, but when we do, the Norwex Pet Towel & Pet Mitt will come in handy, too!

Key features of the Pet Towel and Pet Mitt:

  • Designed with BacLock antibacterial agent
  • Allergy-friendly
  • Dries quickly
  • Contains up to 70% recycled materials
  • Made of premium microfiber
  • 100% satisfaction guarantee
  • Soft and comfortable
  • One size fits all
  • Stylish design

Any cons to the Norwex pet products?

The price point for both is a bit on the steeper side with $40.99 for the towel and $21.99 for the mitt. However, since they’re designed to last, this will likely be a once-in-a-lifetime purchase!

Also, this is not really a con but both the towel and the mitt are super soft and plush.

That means they’re tempting for dogs who like to rip up fluffy, textured items!

I recommend you don’t leave them within reach of puppies and adult pups who like to shred plush things.

My pup Wally is one of those! And although I’m making progress with his impulse control training around plush “toys,” I don’t trust him 100% quite yet. Sure enough, he did try to sneak away with the Pet Mitt, but thankfully he listened to my “leave it” command and dropped it! Haha. Silly boy.

My dog LOVES her Norwex towel so much that when I have the linen closet open to put sheets and towels away, she'll run over and pull it out to lay on.
