Review:

There are probably a half dozen or so people in the world who actually enjoy housework. For most of us, however, the object is to do the basic work necessary in the fastest and least painful way. Patti Barrett offers the reader a wealth of tips and shortcuts, and much practical advice for the complete cleaning novice. She helps the reader evaluate personal standards (and meet them!), make the most of limited time, do the necessary work most efficiently, help set up routines to keep ahead of the game, and just as important, how to get the rest of the family or housemates involved in the process.

This is a handy book filled with tips on stain removal and odor control, and practical advice on cleaning every part of the home, the garage, appliances, storage areas and closets, and even the car. The author has a wry sense of humor and knows that most readers have better things to do with their free time than use it up cleaning house. This will help. --Mark A. Hetts
