Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Great book! I found this book to be very helpful and informative. It has tons of tips such as how to make home-made hair conditioner, how to recycle rice water to wax floors, and there is even a chapter that gives tips on how to save money. Some of the tips I had, personally, heard of before. However, there were many tips that were new to me. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to be eco-friendly and save money.
