The author gives a small section on why we should go green, but recognizes that if you are even looking at a book like this you already are aware of most of the reasons. Recipes are given, essential oils are mentioned, but are not absolutely necessary, the author saying at one point "if you miss the smell of lemon in the commercial products".

My primary cleaning supplies are natural soap (castille) vinegar and baking soda. If you want some great natural recipes I would get the book "Green up your Clean up" by Jill Potvin Schoff. I do use a store bought laundry soap and dishwasher soap. I'm still in the process of detoxing my cleaning, so I haven't tried everything yet.

A general rule of thumb for cleaning is the power of a cleaning chemical doubles every 20 degrees. One more trick: If you use a regular oven cleaner, have some vinegar handy. Starting at 70 degrees F, your cleaner is twice as strong at 90 degrees. Go to 110 degrees (almost too warm to the touch) and you've quadrupled the cleaning power. Another trick is dwell time. Most oven cleaners use caustic potash/lye (potassium hydroxide). It reacts with the fats and oils on the oven walls and it reacts with the fats and oils in your skin. Washing with water just turns it slimy. Flush with water first, then pour some vinegar over your hands to neutralize the caustic.

Green Up Your Cleanup is a timely handbook of advice and cleanser "recipes" that explains how to eliminate toxic-chemical household cleaning agents from your life and replace them with natural, and often homemade solutions. Inspired by the author's experience as a mother of an allergic child, the book includes anecdotal information that led her to natural cleaning solutions and has "green facts," "smart tips," and informational sidebars generously sprinkled throughout the text. The book is divided into three parts, "The Basics," "Inside Jobs," and "Dirty Jobs," and covers everything from green-cleaning the kitchen to green-cleaning the car. A handy size and a spiral binding make it easy to keep on hand as a reference as you do the chores.

I was looking for very detailed info for how to make my own homemade cleaning solutions. Especially for some of the lost arts of cleaning around the house....the good old fashioned way that seems to be a lost art. This had some home mixes, but still relied on store bought and brand named things in part...that I don't buy, never heard of, and am not certain are brands that are still sold or available in my area.

It wasn't suited to my needs. But I think someone who cleans in the modern way, has modern expectations, modern appliances and just wants to use fewer chemicals would find this a very helpful book.

I was looking for more of a natural, homesteader guide...a little more in depth.

This is an excellent book. The author gives a small section on why we should go green, but recognizes that if you are even looking at a book like this you already are aware of most of the reasons. Recipes are given, essential oils are mentioned, but are not absolutely necessary, the author saying at one point "if you miss the smell of lemon in the commercial products". It enthused me to try some essential oils. I will definitely be trying some of these homemade recipes in my cleaning. The author also recognizes that sometimes you have to use commercial products but gives information so that you can make better choices.

Recommended book for anyone who wants to take steps to being more eco friendly in their cleaning.

I borrowed this book from the library and liked it so much that I bought two copies; one for myself and one for my niece who has a highly allergic son. I have been accumulating the recommended supplies and am in the process of switching over to the author's methods. I brought this book into work and shared it with my co-workers, some of whom intend to also buy the book. I like the spiral binding and the heavy paper pages. This book will stand up to lots of use. I find the layout of the chapters useful and easy to look up. Many of the suggestions are just common sense but there were several surprises. Some uses of the old standard baking soda and vinegar would not be news to Grandma but may surprise a younger generation. There are no truly exotic ingredients but many forgotten ones. The author is careful to point out the ecological reasoning behind the choices but does present still sound alternatives that may be easier to implement on occasion. Over all this was a good purchase.

This book is very informative. It gives detailed instructions on how to clean almost anything...Using these guide lines, once you have the initial list of things needed, you are good to go and can save money. This has been so much better for the allergy problems in my family...I would not use harsh chemicals again....This book is the best step by step book ever for green cleaning.

This book will save a lot more than its cost when I re-stock cleaning items using the ingredients the author recommends. I'm glad I bought it as we are trying to live lives as earth-consciously as possible.

There are a lot of very useful cleaning recipies and tips. I am looking forward to trying some and not using so many chemicals to clean... especially since my husband and I are planning to have a child soon
It is a little preachy but ignore that for the solutions for cleaning are excellent, articles are informative and you will save money while dealing with cleaners that smell good, do not ruin your hands and will not kill your pets.
