I bought this book after taking a class about natural cleaning products. I love it! Much better for your health and the environment. I also bought a book for my mother and another for my sister-in-law. I highly recommend this book.

I original borrowed this book from the library, but decided I wanted to have a copy for myself, so I ordered it. I find myself opening it often to get great natural ways to clean my house with stuff I already have in the house.

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!!!

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 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!
