This book is great! How to housekeep without toxins! Most recipes call for items you already have or can get at low cost; baking soda, vinegar, citrus, borax, washing soda, glycerin. Lots of tips and advice on what to use and how to use it. Where you would find the ingredients, etc..

This is an awesome guide on non toxic cleaning for your home. If you're sensitive to chemicals or just want to use an alternative to strong chemicals in your home because you want to live a more healthy lifestyle, this is a great guide giving you lots of different recipes and resources to help you.

It lists companies that make products for you and it has tons of homemade recipes you can make with just simple kitchen items such as baking soda, lemon juice, washing soda, borax, vinegar and olive oi

Has wonderful recipes for home made cleaners. I have a hard time using store bought because the smell of most of the make my head hurt. These are made with ingredients that most people have on had or are very inexpensive to buy. I use the disinfectant, Window and all purpose cleaners from this book.
