Where to Donate Clothes, Furniture, and Everything Else You Don’t Use Anymore

Decluttered Your House? Here's Where to Donate Your Stuff

Just because you wouldn’t call yourself hoarder, it doesn’t mean you aren’t holding onto stuff you don’t need anymore.

Whether it’s clothes you haven’t worn since high school, DVDs you never took out of their plastic wrapping, or Razor flip phones from 2002 taking up space in your nightstand, we’re pretty sure there’s something in your house you don’t use anymore.

But before you go and toss your belongings into the recycling bin (because we’re finished with trash cans, right?), consider helping out someone in need instead.

How to Finally Get Your Cleaning Supplies Organized

In our dreams, we have an organized cleaning closet.

A walk-in organized cleaning closet.

Our bottles of bathroom cleaner and baskets of dishcloths are lined up in a row, and we never have to run around the house looking for window cleaner.

It’s a sweet dream, but for most of us, it’s far from a reality.

Do You Need Suds to Clean? Why More Bubbles Don’t Mean Clean

Posted by Alecsandra Thadani on Mar 8, 2019 10:47:02 AM

Soap Science: Suds Don’t Clean Your Dishes

Just like Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, we’ve all believed the bubble myth at one point in our lives.

We think that if we don’t see soapy pockets of air, our dishes, laundry, and tubs aren’t really clean.

But is there any truth to that belief?

How to Clean Your Home

Everything You Need to Know to Clean Your House

“Go clean.”

It sounds easy, right?

Wipe down your counters. Vacuum under the couch. Change your sheets.

Maintaining a clean home seems pretty straightforward.

So why is it that every time we think we think we’ve cleaned our entire house, we turn around and see dust bunnies, fingerprints, and super long strands of hair?

More likely than not, it’s because you didn’t go in with an official cleaning game plan.

Without a plan, a little expert know-how, and, yes, some high-quality cleaning products, it’s hard to be sure that you’ve cleaned every nook and cranny.

The Beginner's Guide to Non-Toxic Cleaning Products

Posted by ThreeMain on Feb 28, 2019 2:36:09 PM

How to Make Non-Toxic Cleaning Work for You

Raise your hand if…

- You want to make the switch to safe cleaning products, but it’s hard to tell what’s what when you’re standing in the cleaning aisle at the grocery store, and you need to be home in fifteen minutes to start dinner on time.

- You have non-toxic dish soap, but your bathroom cleaners all have laundry lists of ingredients on their labels, and you’re 99% sure that’s not a good thing.

- You tried brewing some DIY cleaners in the past, but keeping up your at-home chemistry routine was way too time-consuming to maintain long-term.

Anyone else staring at their phone screen/laptop/tablet with their other hand in the air?

Us, too.

Why is Plastic Pollution a Problem?

Posted by ThreeMain on Feb 28, 2019 1:16:36 PM

Plastic Pollution 101: What it is & Why It’s a Big Problem

Fact: 91% of plastic is never recycled or repurposed.

Why is that a problem for me, you ask?

Because almost all of that unrecycled plastic ends up in our oceans.

From there it shows up in our drinking water, the soil that grows our food, and eventually our bodies (Luca's swimming with the grocery bags, these days).

And we probably don’t need to tell you that consuming plastic - any kind of plastic - is terrible for your health.

We don’t mean to sound all doom and gloom, but if we don’t do something to lower our plastic consumption now, by 2050, we’ll have more plastic in our oceans than fish.

Fortunately, there are things that you (yes, you personally), can do to reduce the amount of plastic in the ocean, and therefore reduce the amount of plastic that ends up on your plate.

And you can start taking those steps today.
