Mrs. Meyer's Clean Home Book Review and Giveaway! 5 Winners!! *Closed*


Are you a cleaner? I have to admit I love things when they are clean, but even though I am an "organizer" it doesn't necessarily mean I am the best "cleaner". I used to come home from school every couple of months to find my bedroom completely rearranged. I always thought it was big fun to have my bed in a new place. I thought my mom was just making my life fun. But she was cleaning! Everything, under the bed, behind the dresser etc. I have to admit...once furniture is in a place in my house, it doesn't get moved very often! I just do the best I can getting the vacuum underneath the bed.
Mrs Meyer's Clean Home book is like the book of knowledge when it comes to cleaning your home. She has "No-nonsense advice that will inspire you to clean like the Dickens." She has all kinds of neat tips and tricks. She takes each area and breaks it down. She gives you the "toolbox" of what you will need for each area of your home. She throws in humor and family/parenting advice along the way. It is cleaning the way we dream of!

For instance on this page about the bathroom sink. On the right hand page with the sink it says,
"Got TOOTHPASTE dripping down the side of the sink? Dab it up with a CLOTH and RUB IT ON your sink and shower faucets to BRIGHTEN them up."
Ok, right there I didn't know you could use toothpaste to brighten your faucets. I did know you can use shampoo to clean your shower (Fly Lady), but this was a new one for me.
On the left side of this page she has a chart for the different kinds of sinks and what to use to clean them including, porcelain, acrylic, limestone, marble and granite and solid surfaces.
The book is great ladies. The only way it could be better would be if when you open it she jumps out of the book and cleans your house for you!! (Now wouldn't that be cool!!)


To Buy: Go to Mrs. Meyer's Clean Home site and it will give you a list of where you can purchase this book for $19.99/$21.99.

I NEED a copy of this book. I was using vinegar & water until I just read where Mrs. Meyers says to never use vinegar on hard wood floors!

She does not want you to waste leftover water from boiled potatoes. My mother saves hers, but I don't know why.
Thank you!!

She doesn't want you to waste the leftover water from boiling potatoes. I love Mrs. Meyer because she reminds me of my grandmother when she was alive. Her basic motto: Get off your butt and clean, and stop whining about it! Mrs. Meyer has like 500 kids (slight exaggeration) and is my hero because she kept a clean house even with all those kids running around. God Bless her!

I can't wait to read this book, because I love Mrs. Meyer's cleaning products. Just to let you all know, I just found a sale on Mrs. Meyers and other green cleaning products on www.greencupboards.com under "specials," and bought nine different products for under $40, plus free shipping! I'm sure all of you green cleaners know how good of a deal this is. . .
