This book has a ton of neat ideas and tips. However, the problem is that it is not organized well. If you want a quick reference to something, there really is no good way to find it. Of course there is an index, but it doesn't cover everything. There were a few times that I remembered reading something and went to the index to find where it was, but the index failed to list it. Many things are also repetitious.

This book is huge, so you probably won't want to sit and read it all...that's why a better system of organization would be nice. However, it's out of print and you can buy used copies fairly cheap. Even if you buy it for a dollar or two and then pay three dollars shipping, you're still getting a good deal because it truly is a big book. You might find a few things that are useful and get your money's worth that way.

Overall, I would suggest it if the price is very, very low. Otherwise you can probably simply search for cleaning tricks and other useful ideas on Google...and you'd find what you're looking for MUCH faster!

This is not just any little book it is huge and packed with lots of things you may or may not know. It has a section on how to get free stuff and how to take out stains etc. etc. etc. You get the idea.
BTW the seller is excellent!

There are a lot of hints, but some of the same ones are repeated. Because there are so many ideas, you need a good way to reference the hints when you need them, and the book is lacking in that area. I bought this in the used book section, so just by using a few of the hints the book should pay for itself.

This is a very interesting book if you love to read lots and lots of tips about housekeeping. But it does have one major problem.

First, nothing is in any type of order. This book is huge but it's a volume of
silly things arranged in no type of order where you can use it as a reference book.
For example if you want to spend your time doing things like making vinegar ice cubes
to grind up in the disposal so it doesnt smell bad, then this book is for you.
The author also claims that grinding these frozen vinegar cubes will sharpen the blades
of the disposal.
However, garbage disposals don't have blades.
They have dull teeth which grind together to grind up the food.

As an aside, here is a useful tip for garbage disposals which actually does something, that I found on the internet:

"Does ice sharpen garbage disposal blades?"

There aren't any blades to sharpen.

Pull that rubber drain shield out - it's designed to be removed for cleaning - and you'll get a clear look at the mechanism, which is just a couple of rotating cams that hammer the food into pulp.
While you've got it off, clean it. It's nasty."

That's an example of a tip I can use. The tips in this book are useless unless you
like the type of tip such as the grinding icecube tip and want a huge book full of
tips like this. It might have been of some help to me if it had just been in some sort
of order so I could use it as a reference book if I needed a particular type of
household tip. To have over 15,000 tips is nice but not when you can't find the one
in the lot which would help you with a specific problem when you need it.

If you enjoy endless trivia concerning housekeeping and want to
pore over a huge book of this type of thing then you would enjoy this but it's not for me.

I was expecting much more information from this book on how to fix things, how to reuse products for other purposes. I have a number of books in this category and this book is only fair compared to others I have purchased. I guess if this was the only book I had then maybe I would consider it more valuable. I guess I like the Joey Green's books better.

I wish they catalog the items and index for easy references. It has good information that are mostly common sense.

ANYONE WHO WANTS TO BUY THIS BOOK FROM ME, I'LL SELL IT FOR $4 (which I will ship for FREE in the US)!!!

How did the authors pack so much valuable information into one book? I thought I knew a lot of stuff, but find myself refering to this book almost daily and still learn something new. The book pays for itself quickly in money saving tips. Keep this book handy, you will use it!
