Few people want to spend their time cleaning, but the mess gets demoralizing, if not downright dangerous, if you let it go too long. This book is what you need for efficient action. It contains instructions, recommendations, some good tricks you probably never thought of, and inspiration laced with attitude. Section One details the best tools to make the job as easy as possible.
The best substances come next (for the house, not you!). So many people have shelves crammed with toxic cleaning products that dont even work. Find out what you really need. Assembling everything before you get started is not necessary. On the other hand, it can be a pretty good delaying tactic. Section Two starts with a little advice about how to get into the mood. The rest of the chapters give specific instructions on how to deal with just about everything youre likely to have to deal with-the kitchen, the bathroom, germs, dust, mold, slimy shower curtains, dusty books, repellant surfaces, rug spots, people who tell you to clean the blinds in the bathtub, disgusting sponges, etc.
Chapter nine contains advice for minimizing the physical strain of cleaning. If youre not ridiculously young, read this chapter first. The last chapter sums up the human predicament. Life is short. We want to live according to our own priorities, but occasionally it looks like our mom was right.
Take heart. A little patience and humor will help you strike the balance you need.
