I wish that I had discovered this book as a newlywed. A clean house can save you time, money, improve your health and make you feel better about yourself. This book is a good guide to cleaning your house and is full of tips and pointers. (Although many of the decorating ideas are questionable or at least dated. But then I can't say that I'm a decorating expert either.) I also liked her statement "The easiest way to keep a house clean is to keep a clean house." So true!

There were a few tips in here that were useful but mostly it made me feel like I needed to clean my house better! I thought it was clean enough but according to this neat freak, who wrote the book, not so much...
I never thought I could read a cleaning book, but I read this book straight through! I loved the knowledge, the author's sense of humor, and all of the secrets. This motivated me to become a cleaner, better housekeeper.
