    Love this Book

    This book is great if you are looking for an easy, economical, healthy alternative to chemical cleaners. I was unsure that my 'homemade' cleaners would work as well as store bought, but THEY DO! Now my home is super clean, healthy and chemical free. It's amazing!!!

    Very Eye-Opening!

    Detergents, cleansers, polishes, waxes, disinfectants, etc. that we buy from stores are loaded with unnecessary chemicals. It makes me wonder if all those companies aren't using our homes as chemical disposals! I think that every home should contain this book! It explains how we can make our own housecleaning products, and make them healthier and more cheaply! I love this book. It's worth every penny.

    I am going to buy this book

    I got this book from the library and read it from cover to cover. It not only has great recipes, but hints and tips also. I have tried 3 of the recipes so far, and all have worked wonderfully. It is such a relief to be free from the toxic odors of typical cleansers. These recipes work great, and best of all, they smell great too. I am going to try a few more recipes from the book, but I am already sure that I am going to buy this book!!!

    One of the most useful books I have ever owned! With very few, inexpensive staple supplies and various essential oils, I make most of my cleaning products on my own, without fear of breathing in fumes or harsh chemicals on my skin or around my pets and daughter. I am so happy with this book, words cannot describe! Highly recommend!
