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