I “read” a lot of home decorating magazines and books. Reading is in quotes because I tend to really look at the pictures. I analyze them, get inspired by them and mentally store them for a rainy decorating day. But, I rarely read the captions and paragraphs that accompany them. This book was the exception:
This book is FULL of useful advice. I couldn’t get enough of the cleaning tips, home maintenance wisdom and cooking ideas. I actually got post-it flags to mark pages because there was so much useful information, I simply could not remember it all. Everything in this book is simple and common sense, but there were so many things I didn’t know or hadn’t thought of like:
- When cleaning windows clean horizontally on one side and vertically on the other so you know which side any streaks are on
- When possible, open food cans from the bottom so the settled material comes out and you don’t have to scrape
- Run vinegar through the dishwasher occasionally to eliminate soap residue and keep glasses sparkling
I can’t give all of the tips away, but the book is definitely worth checking out.
Do you have any simple wisdom to share?
P.S. I don’t get paid for ANY products I recommend. I just post my honest opinions and hope you find them helpful.
