"Green Clean is a fun, lively romp through the various alternatives to bringing toxic chemicals into our homes. It manages to dance a delicate line -- it's ethically concerned without being preachy, grounded in the earth without being crunchy, playful without being vapid."

Green Clean
The Environmentally Sound Guide to Cleaning Your Home

By Linda Mason Hunter and Mikki Halpin

Published by Melcher Media, New York, NY; 2005.
Designed by The Moderns. Retail: $16.95.

The best place to begin a responsible program of "green" living is by changing the way you clean your house. First, get rid of that vast array of synthetic chemicals harbored in commercial cleaning products you keep under your sink and in your pantry (most of which cause harm to both the planet and human health). Then, switch to "green" cleaning products, either ready-made or cleaners you make yourself.

This book shows how to embark on a program of ecological housekeeping step by step, room by room, stain by stain. It's a definitive guide with advice on which products are healthy and which are not, recipes for nontoxic cleaners, and strategies for cleaning better, deeper, more efficiently. Boxes and sidebars offer simple weekly routines, time-saving tips, and organization techniques guaranteed to simplify your life.

Green Clean is waterproof and stain-resistant, produced with revolutionary Durabook technology. You can keep it handy under the sink or in a bucket with your cleaning supplies without ruining it.
