You want your home, your clothes and your car to be really clean. You don't want to put harmful chemicals down the drains, nor to breathe them indoors. And maybe you would like to save money at the same time, and to enjoy the creative satisfaction of making your own simple cleaning agents.
Not only does Austrian author Manfred Neuhold tell you what works, he explains in plain English WHY it works. Which means you can clean better...
Here are 160 easy, illustrated recipes to inspire you to make all your own basic cleaning products such as: - washing up liquids - rinse aids - fabric conditioners - toilet cleaners - dishwasher powders And the specialist stuff: - anti-flea carpet cleaner - wine stain remover - car air fresheners - anti-mist window and mirror cleaners - sweat-mark removers - car seat cleaners - rust removers - lingerie hand wash liquid.
This book encourages you to ditch the chemicals and take a more natural approach to cleaning your house using simple ingredients. Along the way you will avoid putting harmful chemicals down the drain or breathing in toxic fumes, will reduce your consumption of plastic bottles, and will save money.
There is no catch – except you have to make your own cleaning products – but, as the author points out, this is easily done and can be a creative and enjoyable process. The 160 different recipes can feel rather overwhelming but most of them involve different mixtures of common ingredients such as vinegar, sodium bicarbonate, washing soda, lemon juice and so on. The reason there are so many recipes is that some of them are very specific, for example there are four different recipes for cleaning your fridge, and thirteen for cleaning different parts of your car! But don’t let this put you off, the author also outlines how to make general multi-propose cleaners, which will suit many situations.
