Bestselling author Julie Edelman returns with an essential guide about how to get your house clean--or, even better, just clean enough!

Accessible, easy to read, and entertaining, The Ultimate Accidental Housewife(tm) gives you fun, simple solutions to all kinds of common household problems, from scrubbing the stove to spotting those stubborn laundry stains. With plenty of useful tips and tricks for cleaning your house just enough, this accidentally domestic diva offers practical advice you'll use every day--without ever spoiling your manicure.

Find out how to: Limit your daily workload with defensive cleaning and organizingHandle "toxic zones" like the bathroom and kitchen"Fix" problems until the repairman comesRemove aggressive stains

This must-have little volume splits housekeeping into two categories: Toxic Zones include the bathrooms and kitchen, since they have the greatest chance of housing living organisms that multiply or smell. Not So Toxic Zones include the bedrooms, living room, and family rooms, where dust bunnies are your biggest foe. In addition, helpful sections like I Never Knew You Could Do That! include myriad uses for ordinary household products, and The United Stains Across America, an Accidental favorite, is the most patriotic stain guide you'll ever see.

With Julie's trademark inventiveness and good humor, The Ultimate Accidental Housewife is a sanity-saver for overextended women everywhere.

I stopped reading this book because I didn't share the same values. The values that I speak of are environmental ones. Also, although the introduction mentions that the book is or anyone (man, woman, husband or wife, etc) it is still very written towards a female audience - which is ok - that is probably who is reading the book from a marketing perspective, but still I found it outdated.
