"A well-written, well-researched ebook I was partly expecting it to be yet another ‘lemons and white wine vinegar’ kind of book, but it’s actually full of interesting new ideas and products." PENNY GOLIGHTLY CONSUMER WEBSITE FOR THE BON VIVEUR

".....I admit to being the worst house cleaner of anybody who has
ever lived. I hate housework. But not any more! Done and Dusted has, as Gregg Wallace would yell: CHANGED —-MY—-LIFE! I don’t know Stephanie Zia. I’ve never met her. But by golly, she’s my heroine. BRILLIANT book. It should be required reading for every housewife/househusband." Amazon review

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-have book to keep at hand March 5, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Just downloaded this fantastic, informative book that covers so many household issues. It's well written and fun and at the same time provides useful advice on everything from healthy shampoo to how to deal with red wine stains etc. Writer Stephanie Zia has many years of experience as the Guardian's cleaning guru, and here she puts that knowledge to good use providing healthy, cheap and often organic alternatives to mass produced cleaning products and harmful air fresheners etc. Download a copy and take back control of exactly what chemicals you use to create a happy, healthy environment at home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful - Full of Useful Tips and Tools April 8, 2014
It was perfect timing to pick up this book as I begin Spring cleaning. I really got a lot of great tips from this book. It also taught me about a few helpful tools. I am addicted to the Good Guide app after reading about it in Done & Dusted. Since I have small children, I was excited to learn about some eco-friendly cleaning options. Lots of useful information in this book!
