Overview

Green cleaning has never been hotter and The Little Book of Eco Conscious Cleaning is packed with earth-friendly fixes for every room in the house. Whether you want to replace all of your cleaning solutions with all-natural, inexpensive alternatives such as vinegar, lemon juice, baking soda, and olive oil or you're looking for some less abrasive options, you'll find a wide range of suggestions in this book. Everybody knows that vinegar is a great cleaner, but did you also know that it can dissolve limescale build up from showerheads? Sunlight has always been used as an all-natural way of drying clothes, but did you know it can kill bacteria? Author Bridget Bodoano has done her research and she rounds out the book with detailed lists of earth-friendly retail stores and environmental organizations. While plenty of businesses boast that their products are green, not as many are truly dedicated to the environment. Bodoano recommends buying products from companies like Ecover, which voluntarily lists all ingredients on their labels, and reading up on additional eco conscious cleaning methods at Care2 Make a Difference's Web site. National Geographic's Green Guide, The Chicago Tribune's health blog and TheSimplifiedLife.org all recommended the book. Whether you"e an environmentalist, a parent or a pet owner, you'll discover dozens of ways to both clean your home and make it healthier.

If you think that vinegar is just for making salad dressing, think again. In this handy book of instant cleaning fixes, Bridget Bodoano details all the essential kits needed - and how to use them - to keep the home looking spic and span. Whether it's a speedy round with a duster before guests arrive, a regular weekend clean-up after the grueling work week, or a full-on cleaning blitz, this books gives the lowdown for all those useful shortcuts and tricks to make cleaning less of a time-consuming chore.
