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.

A Beginner’s Guide to Home Improvement

Posted by ThreeMain on Feb 28, 2019 12:05:37 PM

Tackling Your Renovation Checklist

Words like “renovation,” “remodel,” and “home improvement” are scary.

When we hear “kitchen remodel” we imagine our hard-earned dollars down the sink right along with our weekend free time.

But home improvement doesn’t need to mean ripping your house down to the studs and starting from scratch, no matter what Chip & Jo may have lead you to believe (or, as we like to call them, Jo & Chip).

By making small, affordable changes, you can completely change the look and feel of your home: $100 remodels can be just as impactful as $10,000 remodels.

Why Is Environmentally Friendly Living Important?

Posted by ThreeMain on Feb 28, 2019 11:32:25 AM

The Most Important Reason to Go Green

Ever since the Industrial Revolution brought on smog-filled cities and waste-filled waterways, activists and advocates have been talking about the importance of eco-friendly living.

But what does it actually mean to be eco-friendly and why is it actually important?

We know that we should recycle and eat less meat, but most of us don’t know why we should do those things.

Eco-friendly living is important, but it’s equally important to know why it’s we should be living eco-positive lives. Knowing the why behind what you do will make you more likely to continue to do it.

Thanks to the recent the recent popularity of house clearing shows on Netflix, organizing and organization is something on everyone’s minds, and we completely understand why.

Mess is stressful. When we see socks on the floor, crayons on the coffee table, and coffee cups everywhere, our heart rate monitors hit levels we can’t even achieve doing a HIIT workout.

Having a clean, organized home, on the other hand, creates time and space for us to enjoy our lives.
