Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When it comes to cleaning products, society often values convenience over personal and planetary health, thanks to decades of advertising propaganda from the chemical companies that market overpriced and dangerous concoctions. But awareness is changing: Not only are homemade and nontoxic cleaners strong enough for the toughest grunge, they are often as convenient as their commercial counterparts.Nontoxic Housecleaning--the latest in the Chelsea Green Guide series--provides a way for people to improve their immediate environment every day. Pregnant women, parents of young children, pet owners, people with health concerns, and those who simply care about a healthy environment--and a sensible budget--can all benefit from the recipes and tips in this guide.Included are tips for:
  • The basic ingredients: what they are, and why they work.
  • Specific techniques for each room and cleaning need in the house.
  • Detailed recipes for homemade cleaners, including floor polishes, all-purpose cleanser, disinfecting cleanser, window cleaner, oven cleaner, furniture polish, mold- and mildew-killing cleansers, bathroom scrub, deodorizers, stain removers, laundry boosters and starch, metal polishes, scouring powder, and more.
