    Clean It Fast, Clean It Right: The Ultimate Guide to Making Absolutely Everything You Own Sparkle and Shine

    Just because you ask 200 people how to do something does not mean that the answers are all right, even mostly right. Even among experts, there are many ways to do something depending on the situations. I found many of the ideas in this book very odd and difficult to understand. I would rather have information for average people on how to make my home look good otherwise I would hire a cleaning professional if I did not have to do it myself.

    Clean It Fast, Clean It Right: The Ultimate Guide to Making Absolutely Everything You Own Sparkle and Shine

    I am tired of over-hyped books. The 'ultimate' guide? 'Everything you own'? Not hardly! I keep looking for a household cleaning guide where the author knows something that I do not, but this book isn't it. I am always trying to do better housework in less time, but this book would only be useful to someone who knew absolutely nothing, and I mean which end of a broom to push. I have returned it.
