Overview

Fresh clean sheets, white fluffy towels, and a gleaming, well-stocked kitchen -- these are the old-fashioned pleasures that make our busy lives more manageable. But how do you go about transforming your own house into a beautiful haven? According to author Cindy Harris, establishing a routine is the first and foremost thing to do. Once you've done this, you will be on your way to turning housekeeping into an art form, making it an enjoyable and rewarding activity, instead of a chore. But how do you remove that wine stain from your carpet? What about the mineral buildup on your pots and pans? How should you wash your new silk shirt? And how often should you clean the kitchen floor? Keeping House has the answer to all these questions and many more. Packed with easy-to-access hints and tips for tackling every element of your home -- from stains to drains, wooden floors to glass doors, storing bread to making the bed -- this is the essential guide to keeping house. Cindy Harris is uniquely qualified in the art of keeping a house. As a single mother with two young children, she studied for an MA in Psychology while at the same time selling real estate to support her family; good time management and well-ordered simplicity were her key assets. When she later married a prominent business entrepreneur, she was responsible for running three separate households. Here she reveals the secrets behind keeping a well-run, beautiful home. Cindy lives in Brentwood, California and continues to practice her "living tidy "making it simple" philosophy while writing her first novel.
