I was given this book as a joke. At times my house has looked like those on their TV show (I am a single mom of 3) I read it one day, I loved it. It was funny and helpful. I don't have time to use all of the tips in the back about natural cleaning products but found it interesting. I recommend this book to anyone. There are tips for horrible housekeepers to neatfreaks. If will definatly make you think about that stuff that always get stuck in the bottom of the fridge or that nasty ring of lint around the base of your toilet.
