Top 5 Green Clean Books: Organic Housekeeping
Here’s the title: Organic Housekeeping: In Which The Non-toxic Avenger Shows You How To Improve Your Health And That Of Your Family, While You Save Time, Money, and, Perhaps, Your Sanity (Simon & Schuster).
Whew, now that’s a mouthful. But get past the name and you’ll find author Ellen Sandbeck explanations of why we should avoid toxins and pesticides in the home quite useful.
As written in Publishers Weekly…
The first chapter—touting the benefits of tidying up and getting organized—is tedious, but the book hits its groove in a chapter on “Organic Cleaning.” Here, readers learn that all too often the very products we trust to keep our homes clean contain toxins and antimicrobials that kill beneficial organisms. Sandbeck touches on a wide array of housekeeping issues, sometimes almost straying dangerously off-topic. From preventing mold and mildew and controlling garden pests, to computer care and avoiding electrical fires, Sandbeck doles out knowledge with an easy-to-digest blend of authority and humor.
