Tao of Cleaning

Overview

The Tao of Cleaning is divided into five parts, each dealing with a major problem that makes cleaning difficult.

What People Are Saying

McFadden Margaret
The size and design of the book are excellent. The graphics are eyecatching and fit in with the theme beautifully. There is just the right blend of 'cleaning advice' and humor throughout the book to make it a great gift book for most occasions.

    toward a cleaner life..

    This book is beautifully designed and thoughtfully written. I was impressed by the thorough treatment of the subject and excellent organizational structure. My house is clean now. But the book is about more - the advice it contains applies to many 'difficult' or 'unpleasant' tasks like cleaning. Excellent - very helpful. Many thanks to the author.
