Book Review: Organic Housekeeping by Ellen Sandbeck

I figured, since we started talking about cleaning yesterday, that this would be a perfect time to review this book. It's a really good source for tips and hints about cleaning without a lot of chemicals. It has chapters that deal with organization, the kitchen, bathroom. bedroom, laundry, general cleaning, indoor air quality, miscellaneous (safety, automotive care, home maintenance, etc) and your garden. While there are tips about how to clean items, there are also tips on what items to buy to make cleaning easier to start with. The book also explains some of the different chemicals that may be in the materials you buy and how they can affect you and your family.

Overall, this is a good book to get you started on the path of natural cleaning. There's not a basic cleaning job that's not covered in this book and most of the materials you need you probably already have. If you don't, you will be able to find them easily.

If you're not sure about natural cleaning methods, check this book out of your local library, try out a few of the tips and then decide whether or not you would benefit from your very own copy.
