Covering every room in the house, this guide is chock-full of advice on green living, especially as related to cleaning. Haynes, author of books on beauty and skin care, tackles a range of topics in great detail. Originally published in 2004 in Australia, this U.S. edition includes recipes for homemade beauty products and advice on fabric care. However, the datedness of the publication becomes apparent with Haynes's omission of new electronics and appliances, such as DVDs, iPods, and the popular front-loading washers. Organization and storage are barely covered, and the section on alleviating stress is rather skimpy. A marginal purchase at best. (Library Journal -Karen Ellis )
