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.

- 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?

How to Clean Your Bathroom Without Bleach

Nothing feels better than a sparkling clean bathroom. That oh-so-rewarding clean smell that follows an hour or two of scrubbing, spraying and swiffering – can’t beat it! And, since the bathroom is one of the dirtiest rooms in the house, we want to do everything possible to disinfect it.

This is where bleach comes in – the absolute worst offender when it comes to toxic cleaning products. If you’re an avid bleach user, don’t beat yourself up (if you still use it after reading this article, however, that’s another story).

How exactly do your cleaning products affect the environment?

Think about the number of cleaning products you use on a weekly basis. In your home alone, chances are that more than half of those products contain at least two to three toxic ingredients. Now think about the billions of people around the world using cleaning products on a daily basis. The sad truth is it’s impossible to count the number of toxic chemicals polluting the environment and damaging our ecosystem.

At ThreeMain, we believe knowledge is power. Our goal is to raise awareness regarding green cleaning and the importance of making eco-friendly choices as a consumer.
