Non-Toxic, Natural Ways to Get Rid of Bad Smells in Your Home

Posted by Alecsandra Thadani on Jun 4, 2019 2:15:00 PM

All the Sneaky Places Odors are Hiding in Your Home, and How to Get Rid of Them Forever

Quick question: does your home smell as lovely as it looks?

Unless you’re a florist, probably not.

We put a lot of effort into making our homes look gorgeous and inviting, but we usually forget to clean the places that odors like to live.

But it’s not just forgetting to clean your waste bin that’s leading to bad smells in your kitchen. Changes in the weather, pets, kids, spouses, and friends drag stinky smells into your home every day.

And the best way to eliminate those odors isn’t to mask them with an expensive, environmentally unsafe air freshener, it’s to seek out the cause of those smells and remove them.

Convinced that it’s time to deodorize your home? Here’s how to eliminate all of the hidden odors in every room in your home.

You worked hard to help your houseplants thrive despite 0% humidity and frigid temperatures this winter, so it would be a shame to return home to brown-tipped leaves and dry soil when your plants should be flourishing.

ThreeMain & Salazar Packaging: A Sustainable Packaging Love Story

Posted by Alecsandra Thadani on May 2, 2019 2:00:00 PM

4 Sustainable Packaging Practices Small Businesses Can Adopt to Reduce Their Carbon Impact

According to a 2018 UN memo, we have 12 years to limit climate change catastrophe.

But unfortunately, no magic bullet can stop climate change.

Recycling alone won’t get us there. Neither will #LivingPlasticFree or shopping locally.

We all need to take stock and figure out new ways we can live sustainably.

For ThreeMain, that means taking a hard look at ourselves and implementing sustainable practices in every area of our operations.

From recyclable refill pouches to naturally-derived formulas, we’re always looking for new ways to reduce our eco-impact. And through our partnership with Salazar Packaging, we’ve even been able to make our packaging sustainable.

6 Ways ThreeMain's Products Clean With Meaning

Posted by Alecsandra Thadani on Apr 25, 2019 12:30:00 PM

Are Your Green Cleaning Products Really Green?

We all want to do our part to help the planet.

It’s why we buy reusable grocery bags, recycle our soda cans, and try to buy “green” products.

But buying truly green products is easier said than done.

In 2011, the U.S. government passed legislation directing cleaning companies not to use “eco-friendly” language on their packaging or marketing materials without stats to back up their claims.

Despite that, the government hasn’t done much to monitor or stop cleaning companies from falsely claiming that they’re eco-friendly.

As Paul Hollywood would say: they’re all style, no substance.

That’s why we decided that this Earth Week, we want to give you some facts.

Facts that show you - not tell - you how ThreeMain’s cleaning products positively impact our planet, every single time you use them.

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?
