ENJO window cleaning pack {Review and Giveaway} Congratulations Kylie.

July 17, 2013 · 107 comments

“Once upon a time there was a woman who lived in a house with clean windows”.
And then she had kids.
THE END.

I joke, but it’s true.   Before I had children I loved clean windows.    I was cured of this crazy condition by the arrival of my three pink window smearers who thought nothing of spending their entire day dedicating their energy to  turning every window within reach into a droolly smudgefest.   Add to that a dog who decided that licking the Vegemite off the kids through the window was pretty much as good as the real thing and ‘Shazzam’ my cure was complete.     So complete in fact I pretty much gave up and just lived with a border of smeared drool on my windows for years.  As the kids grew so to the height of the border and my ability to cope with it. Delightful hey, but seriously who has the energy to clean windows when you’re living the life of the full-time toddler tamers?

A little while back ENJO asked me if I’d like to review their window cleaning gear to help them promote their current sale.  As I am a little bit of a lover of all thing  ENJO, as well as a reformed window cleaning addict, I didn’t waste much time before saying ‘yes please’ to their microfibre chemical free cleaning goodness.

If you’d like to see a professional ENJO consultants explaining the  correct way to use the pack you can check it out on youtube.   (Personally, I don’t look anywhere near as stylish when I do my cleaning.)    But  I can tell you this system works and I enjoyed getting back to my old sparkly clean window  ways.   Here is the summary of my road test:

GOOD: This is a seriously fast way to clean windows. I was impressed with how quickly and effortlessly  it worked.  No huffing,  puffing or muscle work out involved.
GOOD: Results are sparkly good – especially when you dry them with the miracle cloth.
GOOD: The cleaning gadget is adjustable for small narrow windows, shower screens or hard to get at places behind doorhandles.
GOOD:  No chemicals  are necessary – just plain old  water.  Good for the environment, your health and your hip pocket.
FAIR: Price.  ENJO is not cheap to buy initially.  In fact for the price you pay to buy the pack you could pay someone to come in and clean your windows for you.  But that said you do have to remember you won’t be buying any window cleaning supplies in the future and you’ll be keeping your windows clean without much fuss or hassle for years to come.   In the long run it’s pretty cost comparable. (The ENJO window cleaning pack is on sale until the end of July for $159).
FAIR:  You need to take proper care of your  ENJO clothes.  They need to be washed  in the supplied bag in the washing machine (without fabric softner) and then air dried.
BAD: Using ENJO doesn’t stop people smearing on your windows – it just makes them easier to clean!!

THE TIME TEST:  {I will return to share this in a few months}

Its like you read my mind! You appear to grasp so much about this, like you wrote the ebook
in it or something. I think that you could do with a few percent to force the message
house a little bit, however other than that, that is wonderful blog.
A great read. I will definitely be back.

I use to have the obsession of ironing and then neatly folding undies until little miss came along. When she started to walk at get into everything she would go straight to hubby’s top draw and pull all the undies out, then to my draw. No other draw she would touch but the undies. Lucky for her as now I am cured of such a silly silly obsession 🙂

17 Jim Lipscomb July 31, 2013 at 8:05 pm

I was obsessed with keeping the house neat and tidy every single day and would tidy up several times a day but once my son came along i’ve now discovered that its nearly impossible to pick up toys every minute of the day so i now only do a quick tidy up once he is in bed.

30 Stacey Shailer July 26, 2013 at 8:14 pm

I had a ‘thing’ about clothes pegs matching when hanging clothes on the line, if I was using 2 or 3 pegs to hang up an item then they had to be the same colour and shape. Now I’m lucky (and thankful) to find a peg that isn’t broken, or been buried in the dirt before using it!

42 Jenny S July 24, 2013 at 10:41 am

My kids have sure been the cure…
To my obsession with having clean floor!
Used to be clean enough to almost eat off,
Now that thought just makes me wanna boff!

43 Amelia July 23, 2013 at 10:43 am

Having 2 girls has (almost) cured me of my body obsessions, by making me realise how important self-love is and how vital it is that I model positive body image in this image-obsessed culture.

44 Jenai July 23, 2013 at 9:14 am

Kids cured my bookshelf obsession:
I liked to arrange my books by author, spines facing out.
Now, when they’re used as colouring books, I cope.

45 Kaydee July 22, 2013 at 12:04 pm

My girls have ensured my house is no longer as tidy as I like it. I now know the difference between dirty and tidy 🙂

My hair obsession – I no longer have the time or patience to spend an hour preening, styling and ensuring every strand is neatly in place.

55 Belinda Baker July 19, 2013 at 4:25 pm

My kids have cured me of being organised, because no matter how much I plan and organise, one of them decides he is on a “go slow” or needs to go to the toilet for a “sit” or needs a nappy change, or spills their drink all over them, just as I am bundling us all out the door!

56 Rebecca July 19, 2013 at 3:38 pm

Would love this maybe my kids will clean their bathroom with the fun enjo gloves and bonus is I know there are no nastys being used just water

57 Nicoletta Nici July 19, 2013 at 2:24 pm

I thank my children everyday that they have cured my obsession with smoking. Not only was I giving myself a life sentence, I am now a positive role model for them.

58 Zenda Eleuteri July 19, 2013 at 2:01 pm

I used to have an obsession with a clean bathroom mirror, but now my daughter enjoys keeping it clean more than I ever did <3

59 Jess July 19, 2013 at 1:53 pm

My kids have cured me of caring about clutter, it can be clean but tidiness has gone out the window.

60 Carla July 19, 2013 at 12:01 pm

My children have eliminated my sneaky addiction to day time trashy TV.
It happened right around the time when my husband asked our toddler son
what he had done today, to which he replied, ‘Watched Oprah’.

61 Anne July 19, 2013 at 11:56 am

Showering in private. Since 2002 I have had an audience with proliferous questions as they sit beside the shower screen and insist that they are quite happy to wait for me to finish.

62 aimee tatham July 19, 2013 at 11:54 am

My children have cured me from hoarding. I had no idea how much of a hoarded I was becoming until this year when I realised how many clothes, toys, craft items, furniture, recycled containers, etc etc etc I was hoarding in every room of the house. Life felt so cramped, so cluttered, so constrained which prompted me to de-clutter and simpify our lives. This is still a work in progress but already my home (and my mind) looks and feels cleaner, clearer and less cluttered! And the added bonus that my Enjo makes the house sparkle even more!!

66 Kate July 19, 2013 at 11:24 am

My kids cured me of the obsession of matching crockery- *sigh* as another one breaks it’s replaced by an op shop ‘bargin’

I keep a “tidy” house by day and clean at night when they are in bed. That way we at least start each day with a clean house!

68 Rebecca Fisher July 19, 2013 at 11:19 am

Not everything has to be done perfectly, even effort is helping. How can you be cross when they colour out of the lines, put their dirty clothes in the laundry not the basket, leave a tissue on the bench (at least they are using one and not their sleeve) lol

My kids have cured me of my fear of spiders.. I used to be TERRIFIED of them but then my eldest is scared of *ALL* insects apart from butterflies.. even those little sugar ants get a scream as she runs to the far end of the house.. and with a hubby that’s more scared of them than me… I had to budge 🙂

Years of breastfeeding and *just wanting to keep them asleep/dozing a little longer* have completely cured me of needing to eat first thing. I used to get up just for breakfast. Now, I’d rather stay in bed!

I would love to win your enjo pack – I haven’t tried enjo, despite something of an obsession with non-toxic cleaning. I have tried cheaper microfibre clothes from the supermarket, with reasonably good results. But I’ve always wondered, what about all those tiny bits of microfibre gradually finding their way into our waterways. Should I be worried?
