Cassandra Kent worked for many years at the British magazine Good Housekeeping, noted for it's in--depth research on household and consumer topics. She is the author of more than 20 practical housekeeping books. Despite an abiding interest in the quickest, easiest, and surest ways to keep the home running smoothly, she confesses that her own home suffers from the mess created by two children.From Library Journal:
This useful title is less a compendium of hints than a compact encyclopedia of household topics. Color coding on the foreedge identifies sections on general house cleaning, stain removal, laundry, home repair, maintenance, food, housekeeping, and health and safety. The instructions are concise and well illustrated with drawings and color photographs; tip boxes and an illustrated guide to effacing stains are among the effective graphics used to convey information. A comprehensive index completes this well-designed volume. Kent is the author of numerous books on housekeeping (e.g., Ultimate Household Help, DK, 1996), and her expertise is evident throughout. Highly recommended.?Susan B. Hagloch, Tuscarawas Cty. P.L., New Philadelphia, Ohio
