Wow! Such an amazing book! I’ve been making my own cleaning products for years, and some of the ones in this book are my absolute favorites, and I’m not going back to commercial products. I’m absolutely thrilled to see 150 recipes in one book. I will most definitely try many of these in the near future. I am delighted to see that there are chapters for cleaning cars, offices, and outdoors. The recipes are simple, clear, easy to make, and they smell good. I’m a huge fan of essential oils, and I have lots of them at home. I think the explanation and description of essential oils in the book is very good and important. So is the section with the other main ingredients and where to get them. I got very excited about these recipes and will immediately make minty mirror magic and overnight oven cleaner. I highly recommend this book! It’s about time people stop using commercial poisons and switch to homemade natural stuff. I received an advance reader copy in exchange for an honest review.
This book is awesome! It contains a diverse range of cleaner recipes using natural ingredients. All of the ingredients are easy to find and are simple to put together and use. I already used vinegar as my cleaning base for nearly 10 years now, to save money, but this book uses the vinegar base with other ingredients to help clean specific items/surfaces in your home. This book is indispensable for those who want to cut back on chemicals that can negatively affect health and live a cleaner and simpler life. And the best part, vinegar is cheaper than regular cleaners so these better-for-you cleaners are more cost effective too! Win win!
Author Karen Siegel-Maier has given the readers all of the research, information and Natural Organic Recipes you will need to Clean/treat just about everything inside and outside of your home. This book will inspire you to go chemical free and clean naturally!
This book is brilliant! I've always been interested in making my own natural cleaning products but often find I'm struggling for a recipe using the best natural products. The book is nicely split into rooms/items, EG; Kitchen cleaning products, car cleaning, bathroom, air cleansing etc. And includes recipes for dishwashing soaps, carpet cleaners, glass cleaner, pot-purri and many many more. Ingredients are easy to get hold of and often used in other recipes so they could be ordered in bulk quite cheaply. Essential oils are used to fragrance the cleaning products which I love. I will definitely be using many of the recipes from this book and can't wait to try some! With thanks to Netgalley, publisher and author for the advanced reader copy.
