What is Team Clean?

Team Clean takes a holistic approach to residential and commercial cleaning. Using only environmentally conscious, non toxic, biodegradable products and methods our “teamsters” (as we like to call them) will leave your home – and our planet – sparkling clean. We offer a spring-cleaning like approach to our clients, going above and beyond what you can do on your own. Under, over, between, behind, above: it’s all included! Team Clean is fully insured.

Team Clean also brings all our own products and tools! We use a wide variety of natural cleaning product lines such as Seventh Generation, Common Good, Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day, Barkeeper’s Friend, Ecover, and If You Care.  We even make a few special products ourselves!  We get creative with ordinary stuff too like vinegar, baking soda and lemons. Our goal is to get everyone’s home as clean as possible and be 100% natural and biodegradable in the process. Making your home chemical free and keeping it safe for grown-ups, babies and pets!

Who is Team Clean?

Although Team Clean is new to the scene, Candace Mills (T.C. co-founder) brings over a decade of green cleaning experience to the team. As the founder of 2 Chicks and a Broom, Mills cultivated the largest green housekeeping company in Memphis. Currently Mills has partnered with artists J. Penry and Megan Pflug to found Team Clean NYC in 2010.  Our cleaners (or “Teamsters” as we like to call them) are artists, musicians and other creative people who need flexibility in their work schedule. Together Team Clean is bringing artful sustainability to the world of housekeeping.

The Jewish Mother’s Guide to Style: Team Clean

“Passionate and anal compulsive, Team Clean caters to ridding you of your sense of ‘ick’. Toxins of all kinds have no place in a clean environment according to co-owner Candace Mills, who recently explained Team Clean’s process to me in an impromptu visit she made to the Jewcy HQ.  After starting her business only a few weeks ago, Candace had just finished cleaning her first client’s home in New York after seven years of owning and operating Two Chicks and a Broom in Memphis, TN.”

Happy International Women’s Day, humans.  Loads more work ahead till equality is a construct we simply live instead of fight for.  Don’t. Stop.

Frida Kahlo to Marty McConnell
by Marty McConnell

leaving is not enough; you must
stay gone. train your heart
like a dog. change the locks
even on the house he’s never
visited. you lucky, lucky girl.
you have an apartment
just your size. a bathtub
full of tea. a heart the size
of Arizona, but not nearly
so arid. don’t wish away
your cracked past, your
crooked toes, your problems
are papier mache puppets
you made or bought because the vendor
at the market was so compelling you just
had to have them. you had to have him.
and you did. and now you pull down
the bridge between your houses,
you make him call before
he visits, you take a lover
for granted, you take
a lover who looks at you
like maybe you are magic. make
the first bottle you consume
in this place a relic. place it
on whatever altar you fashion
with a knife and five cranberries.
don’t lose too much weight.
stupid girls are always trying
to disappear as revenge. and you
are not stupid. you loved a man
with more hands than a parade
of beggars, and here you stand. heart
like a four-poster bed. heart like a canvas.
heart leaking something so strong
they can smell it in the street.
