I definitely love the idea of this book, but I found many of the projects a little too off-the-grid for what I'm willing or able to try at this point. But I do appreciate that the authors anticipate that, and encourage you to try the ideas that seem intriguing to you and leave the rest for another person or another day. When my current cleaning supplies run out, I am excited to try their mixes. I am not, however, willing to brush my teeth with a stick. I also get frustrated any time I read books or blogs of this type that I live in an apartment with no outdoor space at all and little control of the temperatures in my apartment, so there are many projects that I would like to try, but can't given my situation. That is no reflection on the quality of the ideas--or perhaps reflects well because of my inherent interest, despite my circumstances. But it was the case that quite a few of the projects were of no use to me until I have a home and yard of my own.
