Home Safe Home is the ultimate reference of its kind, written by the leading authority on eliminating toxics in the home. It offers more than four hundred tips, including do-it-yourself formulas for inexpensive, safe products to replace the harmful substances we are exposed to in our own households. If you suffer from unexplained headaches, fatigue, or depression, or if you worry about the link between increased use of toxic chemicals and the rising rate of cancer, the many suggestions in this book can make your life virtually toxic-free!  
Here are some of the many useful facts you'll learn:
- You can make a window cleaner from vinegar and water that is safe, more effective, and less expensive than any product on the market.
- A mineral powder, which costs pennies per use, is the safest way to get whites their whitest.
- Simply changing your type of sheets and pillows may cure insomnia.
