The Art of #Natural #Cleaning: Tips and techniques for a chemical-free sparkling #home by Rebecca Sullivan #Review #nonfictionnov #nonfiction


I’m on a mission to review all my outstanding non-fiction books this month, since it’s non-fiction November. And there’s a lot! Will I be able to do it?  I’ll give it my best shot.


The Art of Natural Cleaning: Tips and techniques for a chemical-free sparkling home by Rebecca Sullivan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ve always liked the idea of making my own chemical free cleaning products, and have come across books with a little bit about it stuffed somewhere towards the back as an afterthought, so when I came across this whole book dedicated to the subject, “The Art of Natural Cleaning: Tips and techniques for a chemical-free, sparkling home (Art of series)” (what a mouthful!) by chemical free Rebecca Sullivan (well, one has to assume she is) I was delighted to say the least.

First impressions are – it’s a lovely small, hardback book, and every other page is a coloured photo of either the finished product or the work in progress.

There are some lovely ideas, and these are set out into categories; Kitchen, Wardrobe and Laundry, Bathroom, Scent and Make It Shine. There’s a nice introduction from the author and a mini shopping list of which are easily sourced. Each idea, if it includes a recipe, is set out clearly with the ingredients you need and the method.

There are several “recipes” I like, but I love those in the Scent Chapter and have made my own natural chemical free air fresheners.

Overall this is a great book and I’ve enjoyed trying out some of these ideas. Incidentally, the book cover is made out of a very tactile (to me anyway) material, that has a slightly woven, textile feel to it. I’m not sure what the technical name is for it, but I like it. And can’t stop stroking it.
