Mish
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..

A A great guide to safe cleaning products to use in your home, it also gives "recipes" for making green cleaning products for your home. Fantastic.

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.
