Overview

The House That Cleans Itself is a true housekeeping guide for the housekeeping-impaired! It boldly takes on the reasons behind chronic messiness and why ordinary home-organization books won't work. Using the methods of "horizontal thinking," this book teaches readers how to set up a home so efficiently and logically that it seems to clean itself.

More than a how-to book, The House That Cleans Itself also looks at what God has to say about cleanliness and order, and how He can inspire order in every reader's life in a fresh and unique way. For added fun, some of the tips Mindy uses come from research for her popular novels, The Trouble with Tulip, Blind Dates Can Be Murder, and Elementary, My Dear Watkins.

    Logical and simple

    Finally, a logical approach to a clean house ¿ let the house clean itself!! I admit skepticism when I read the title, The House That Cleans Itself. I was secretly hoping for a magic button like something from a futuristic science fiction movie, poof a clean house. Alas, I will not be able to discard my broom and dustpan completely but I might not have to use them quite as often. While Mindy Starns Clark does not offer a magic button, she does offer an intelligent, commonsense approach to housekeeping for the cleaning impaired. ¿By adapting the environment to compensate for and/or eliminate the behavior, your house will stay clean longer and with less effort than you ever imagined.¿ The House That Cleans Itself takes the reader through a step-by-step plan that evaluates your home, helping to discover problem areas, remove the clutter, and simplify cleaning. While my cleaning habits over the years have definitely gotten better, I still have room for improvement. I found several of the suggestions helpful. The statement I most related to was ¿If you can¿t see it, you can¿t remember it.¿ The logical (why didn¿t I think of that) solution, clear plastic storage containers. MS Clark suggests that the reader/cleaner discover their own Home Base Room (or the spot that drives you nuts if it is not clean) and always make it a haven of cleanliness. Since I am a ¿list person¿, I was glad to see the ¿Handy List For Quick Reference¿ and a cleaning list for each room. ¿The Most Embarrassing House Stories¿ were humorous and allowed those of us lacking cleaning skills to know we are not alone. However, the best part of this book was the Prayer Walk. What better way to keep your home clean than by placing God in the center. She also advocates a daily devotional time along with the items that make that time more satisfying to spending time with God. Reviewed by Debra Gaynor for ReviewYourBook.com, 10/07
