Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There is a revolution going on in America-a green revolution. From organic foods to recycling, millions of families have adopted safer, better, and more responsible ways to live. The latest front in this revolution is the home itself, as households across the country adopt ways to keep their homes clean and healthy-and ways to do it that are environmentally sane. Green cleaning products are "going mainstream," the washington post says, and sales of natural household products have surged by some twenty percent a year for the past five years. GREEN CLEAN is the definitive, step-by-step guide to cleaning better while using natural, safe products. A friendly, accessible introduction explains what green cleaning is, how it can work for your home, and why it's important. Room by room and stain by stain, GREEN CLEAN offers non-carcinogenic strategies for cleaning deeply and more efficiently. GREEN CLEAN breaks environmentally conscious cleaning into simple principles and easily mastered routines, with beginner, expert, and advanced techniques that let readers set their own goals and develop their own cleaning plan. Spot illustrations enliven each chapter, showing time-saving techniques, products, and equipment. Room-by-room chapters teach how to make spotless everyplace from under the kitchen sink to the shower curtain and windows. Also included are recipes for safe, simple, and economic cleaning solutions and the lowdown on the best eco-friendly cleaning products on the market today. GREEN CLEAN is an indispensable reference for today's home. Produced in Melcher Media's innovative, patented DuraBook¨ format, GREEN CLEAN is waterproof and stain-resistant, meaning that you can keep it right under the sink or in a bucket with your cleaning supplies without ruining it. The book is also fully recyclable, itself proof that green products can be better products.
