The front door of a home is the place that guests begin to develop impressions; a tidy, attractive, and most of all welcoming space is important to homeowners that wish to make their guests happy. The welcome mat is a natural extension of this effort, and coco door mats are some of the best on the market. Coco door mats stand up to tough use and remain durable and beautiful even through heavy wear. Unlike cloth mats that can become sodden and torn or foam mats that can chip and pill, coco door mats are made from the unique fibers of the coconut husk, which withstand rain, wind, snow, and anything else Mother Nature can throw at them.
In a house that often endures the muddy bootprints of yard workers or enthusiastic children, coco door mats can be a real lifesaver. The stiff fibers work their way into even the most intricate shoe sole designs, dislodging mud, grass, dust and debris that would normally litter the carpets and floors inside. Easy to clean, coco door mats can simply be hosed down and shaken off to get rid of any particles caught between the fibers: no special care is needed.
Coco mats are available in a variety of styles, from colored designs that can depict everything from floral themes to tropical items like parrots and sunglasses to simple black designs that can offer messages such as “welcome” or “blessings to all who enter”. A door mat is a very personal item that speaks to a homeowner’s style, which is why having so many choices in designs of these mats ends up being a fortunate benefit for personalization. No matter what your taste, there are coco door mats that are sure to appeal to it – welcome your guests and spare your floors with one of these beautiful pieces of decor!

A doormat is a great investment for any reisdence, as it helps prevent dirt from being tracked into the home – which will ultimately save you time and energy during cleaning!
According to EHow.com, the ideal doormat is as long as the doorframe, meaning that the edges should be as long as your door is wide. If you're using a round or oval mat, the diameter should be equal to the length of the frame as well.
The website also recommends measuring the number of inches from the ground to the bottom of the doorframe to ensure you choose the correct thickness. You should choose a doormat with a thickness shorter than the space between the bottom edge of the doorframe and the concrete or ground to ensure the door will open and close properly, without pulling the mat.
Natural Coco Doormats are made from 100 percent-natural coconut fiber and come in a variety of patterns, shapes, sizes and thicknesses to meet any need.
These doormats are the ideal way to keep dirt out of the home and they're designed to absorb water so that interior floors and carpets will stay dry as well as debris-free.

A writer for the Daily Sundial, Aimee Lastrella, recently offered advice to individuals who deal with a messy roommate.
The author recommends that you sit down with your roommate and try to agree on a solution without becoming confrontational. Setting up a cleaning schedule may be a good idea because each roommate will know his or her specific duties each week. Whether it's taking out the trash or vacuuming the floor, those chores have a better chance of getting done if they are assigned.
She recommends setting up a cleaning fund jar and mandating that anyone who doesn't hold up their end of the bargain must contribute to the jar. Any money that is saved up in the jar could be used to purchase cleaning materials, such as paper towels, disinfectant and laundry detergent.
One way to reduce the amount of time typically devoted to cleaning the floor is to pick up a durable doormat. If you or your roommates live an active lifestyle, the amount of debris that can begrime your floor will add up quickly.
Natural coco doormats are tough and thick, and they are handcrafted with a rugged design that will match almost any room in your home. Some of the mats are reversible and equipped with fibers that can absorb water.

Hosting a Labor Day party can actually involve a lot of labor itself, especially when it comes to cleaning and decorating. Many homeowners want to make sure that their homes look impeccable before guests begin to arrive.
Lots of planning can help eliminate the stress of these preparations. By attending to the details of the party little by little, over the course of the next few days, individuals can cut down those last-minute additions during the night before or the day of the celebration.
Homeowners who are pressed for time should focus their efforts on the most visible areas first. Counters, tables and floors should be swept, mopped and vacuumed, but the spaces behind couches or around a desk can safely be ignored.
When the visitors do start to arrive, they could immediately dirty your newly clean abode. One way to make sure that they don’t track dirt into the house is to lay down a Coco Mat in front of the door.
These mats, which are woven from 100 percent coconut fiber, are extremely durable and will work to trap debris that would otherwise get carried into a home. With a little preparation and the right products, you can kick back, relax and enjoy your long weekend.

Dr Frank Lipman recently wrote in the Huffington Post that a home’s indoor air quality can be up to five times poorer than the outdoors, a problem that can be fixed by a series of household improvements.
Wall-to-wall carpeting can be a serious culprit in this equation, since toxins can accumulate on the fabric. Furniture upholstery, especially on synthetic or plastic pieces, may also present an environmental hazard.
Lipman claims that there are 500 to 1,000 chemicals in the average home, but keeping rooms clean through dusting, sweeping and vacuuming can significantly reduce this count.
He also suggests changing from chemical-based lawn products to organic ones, since many of the former have been linked to increased risks of cancer and nervous system damage.
Toxins can be dragged into the house on the bottoms of shoes and Lipman says that a high-quality doormat can be very beneficial in keeping a home healthy.
Coco mats are extremely durable products that are woven from 100 percent natural coconut fibers, which means that no artificial or harmful chemicals were added. The abrasive texture can scrape shoes and boots clean before a person enters a house, therefore keeping floors and indoor air quality much cleaner.

Summer beach trips are a great way to relax and have fun with the whole family. When everyone piles into the car to head to nearest lake or ocean, it’s often necessary to bring along sunscreen, food, beach toys and water.
If you’re traveling with young children, it’s also important to be aware of how to swim safely and test water quality.
EcoChildsPlay.com suggests finding a body of water that is clean, and far away from golf courses or farms. Try to avoid swimming within a day of heavy rain, since this can also stir up sediment or sewage that could be potentially hazardous. Also, consider checking online to see if the beach’s water has been tested for contamination in the recent months.
No matter what activity you’re doing, from playing frisbee to building sand castles to swimming, make sure that kids are always accompanied by an adult.
After all the fun in the sun, everyone might end up bringing sand back into the car. One way to keep this from happening is to bring a coco mat along for the ride, which can be used to scrape the sand from water shoes, sandals and even towels.
These mats are woven from 100 percent coconut fibers, which are adept at catching water, sand and dirt that might otherwise be tracked into the car.

Whether you own a lake house or you’re renting one for the season, you’re probably going to want to keep it clean. Constant trips to the beach or dips in the lake can get clothes and shoes sandy.

They are especially adept at scraping mud from boots and can withstand any weather condition, which means that this product can be left outside year round.
