Reviews - What do customers think about Real Simple: Cleaning?
Nothing New Here Jun 26, 2008
I didn't feel this book offered anything new. Rehash of ideas I've heard 100 times.
Helping the helpless (4.5 stars) May 22, 2008
As the child of a wonderful mother yet complete housekeeping slob, I have to admit, I truly didn't have the first idea about "how" to clean a house let alone what type of schedule I should maintain. This book was exactly what I was looking for. It has a detailed breakdown of various rooms in the house, with a guideline and specific "how to" instructions for where to start cleaning in each room, how to clean each aspect (area) of a room, and how often you should clean each component of a room. I also liked the friendly pep talk about doing just a little at a time rather than sitting on your bum watching tv, etc. I would highly recommend this to other "cleaning" challenged individuals.
My only complaint about the book is that the index did not specifically list any websites or retailers for some of the various cleaning supplies.
Great resource - highly recommend! Mar 27, 2008
This is a great book with wonderful ideas and well organized for cleaning your home. It is broken down by rooms for quick ideas, has a cleaning calendar and shows all of the different finishes, floors etc and how to clean each one. It is a great book with wonderful information and I highly recommend it!!
Not something you don't already know............... Mar 2, 2008
Nice layouts great pictures of sparking homes with nothing in them - really since I have alot of my stuff in mine and have to clean around it - must be easy for them. Nothing in here you don't already know -
Like having your mom handy at any time to ask for advice about cleaning just about anything! Feb 26, 2008
Great guide whether you want to do a quick "touch-up" before guests arrive or a thorough cleaning, this is a great book. It gives great tips for every kind of cleaning task you might have. I would NOT buy a small paperback because it takes the fun out of imagining how beautiful your home will look like when you are done (with the help of gorgeous pictures in the book). Worth every penny!
