When I was a kid, I used to pull out my mom's Don Aslett books (she had every one of them) and look at all the cartoon pictures that accompanied the articles. Yes, some children had friends. I looked at cleaning books in my basement.

This book was just published a couple years back! So I have seen NONE of the drawings in it! No way, awesome!!!

Some interesting ideas on cleaning and teaching kids to clean. Possibly inspirational... my house is cleaner than when I first started reading, does that count? I don't know if any book can make the task of getting kids to do housework easier, though. Maybe I should read up on great dictators instead...

Loved this book. I thought it was very inspiring and had a lot of great ideas to get your kids to help with the house cleaning. I underlined and tagged several pages and quotes in this book.
Denise
Light reading from a man who has spent the past 50 years in the cleaning industry. Picked up some decent suggestions.
Danni
