This title is worth owning; I was drawn to it at first because of the beautiful photographs, but I soon discovered how practical it was as well. I keep checking it out because it covers how to clean virtually everything in your home. I'm not a natural tidier and didn't have a ton of cleaning experience when I moved away from home, so this book has been a lifesaver. Its information regarding the specific cleaning methods and tools for numerous different surfaces, rooms, and objects is valuable and well organized. I do agree with the previous comment that it is difficult to imagine how one would have time for anything else if they cleaned as frequently as the book suggests, but its advice on the actual cleaning process makes it well worth reading.

Helpful book with guidelines as to how and how often things around the house should be done. However, if you try to do them as frequently as the author suggests, you will not have time to do much else--work, eat, play, etc.
