I love this book, and I use it all the time. It has a wonderful collection of recipes and ideas about housekeeping, along with beautiful photographs. It has a lot more information in its pages than some similar books. It is not so much a guide to green housekeeping, but a guide to housekeeping, that in its very nature is green. A delightful read, and I use this book on a regular basis to look up different cleaning recipes.

This book was so interesting that I am ordering 3 more copies for each one of my sisters. I actually am now using only natures products to clean my home such as vinagar, lemon, and baking soda. I have honestly thrown away all the chemical cleaning product under my sink and I'm washing my clothes with baking soda and vinagar. Believe me this book can change a persons life just reading the 1st two chapters.

Many good ideas and well-know recipes in France, but I learned new stuff anyway and I think this book is very useful to save money and spare our planet.
I am also a big fan of Cabbages & Roses which belongs to the author. It is very English, beautiful, handy, useful, smart, clever as is this book.
The pictures are cool and beautiful (even if the paper is recycled) and the explanations so simple and easy to use.
I recommend strongly, by hoping people will be more aware of the importance of sparing and being "more natural".
