Clean It Up

Some of us weren't born with the knowledge of effective cleaning techniques.  Some of us take the 'grab the washcloth and swipe it quick' approach which I am guessing is not optimal.  As with almost all contemporary problems, there's a book for this.  Let's see what the entertainingly-titled Talking Dirty with the Queen of Clean has to offer.  Ooh, this one's new: to get food odors out of plastic containers, fill them with warm water and a little dry mustard.  Hey, that explains why I'm not a great housekeeper - I'm all out of dry mustard!  To get rust off a knife you can stick the knife in an onion for about an hour.  Then just try to use that knife to cut a piece of cake.  Did you think of that before you stuck it in an onion? Yeah. We don't have kids, but I live in the house so it's nice to know that a steel-wool pad filled with dry soap will take crayon marks off the wallpaper.  What?  I'm creative. And I have crayons.

House Cleaning Books (you won't believe how many!)
