I wrote this book because I feel that housekeeping is more than a daily chore. I believe that our attitudes and beliefs about housekeeping come from deep within and from our past. These attitudes have a surprising influence on our very existence.

Like any chore, housekeeping can be streamlined and simplified, but a clean house will not bring total satisfaction into our lives. If we understand why we are the kind of housekeeper we have become, discover where we got our beliefs and why we have them, we can find freedom. A freedom that can release us from the "Black Clouds" that shadow us and sometimes even affect our happiness.

I would like to share some ideas with you about housekeeping and help you learn things about yourself that you may never knew existed.

This book is for all housekeepers male and female. It is for the perfectionist to the most relaxed of housekeepers. I will take you through some exercises that will reveal why you clean or do not clean the way you do. I will also take you through cleaning a house, step by step, and show you how to rid yourself of "Spring and Fall Cleaning" and the guilt that you no longer do it.

You will learn what type of housekeeper you are and how to live happily with that discovery.

I suggest that you read the book in its entirety, before you began cleaning. Then read and re-read as needed.
