This book has given me a major complex! Who knew vinegar was the miracle substance of the century. I don't know if it was smart to read this right before I started planting, and killing my weeds with deadly, skin-killing, sex inhibiting, earth hating poisons!
What was I thinking!
Holy crap I'm scared now.
Favorite Quote: Head lice can be killed by wrapping the afflicted head in a vinegar soaked towel. (Do not remove the head before doing this; it should remain attached to the body, no matter how angry you are at the child for bring lice home!)

great ideas... wondered how effective some of them were. Living in Alaska, we are lucky not to have many of the problems listed, so I will fortunately won't get to try them out any time soon.
An amusing little collection of ideas and things, and certainly a good starting point from which to pursue a variety of options in further depth elsewhere
Some great little "tips & tricks" without chemicals! Since I'm recently obsessed with my garden, I just loved this one!
Great book, if you're looking for more non-toxic ways of gardening and house cleaning.... VINEGAR has so many uses! lol
A must read for anyone. As many tips on interior household cleaning formulas as exterior pest solutions.
Green and cheap organic gardening solutions, most of which you've already got in your home.
Informative book with tons of tips on natural solutions to everyday problems.
Somewhat antiquated, but otherwise fun, informative and useful.
Good gardening and home care tips written in a humorous manner.
Another fun read by Sandbeck, a good tabletop book.
