The Natural Home is a treasure trove of cleaning solutions. This book will definitely dispel the myth that harsh chemicals are needed to clean. An added bonus is that money can be saved by making your own cleaning solutions. The book is not only informative, but visually pleasing too, with lots of graphics, line drawings, and call out boxes all with a green color palette. After the introduction, the book is divided by homemade products, rooms, and then by ingredients. There is an entire chapter devoted to stain removal and a second chapter focused on furniture. The book closes with natural fragrances.
