DOWN WITH LAUNDRY DRUDGERY! LET THE
QUEEN OF CLEANŽ MAKE WASH DAY LOADS OF FUN!

Once upon a time, in a world fraught with shrinking jeans, dry-cleaning debacles, and endangered delicates, laundry was a dreaded chore. Then one happy day, the Queen of CleanŽ put an end to the vicious washand-dry cycle -- with her all-new collection of ingenious tips and natural solutions for stress-free washing, ironing, sorting, and stain-busting!
Let the Queen show you how to:
  • sort laundry like a pro
  • remove spots, stains, scorch marks, and odors
  • soften hard water-and save clothes from a dull, gray fate
  • make your own fabric softener sheets in a snap
  • say good-bye to pink socks, with a foolproof colorfastness test
  • line-dry clothes without hanger lumps or clothespin marks
  • decipher those fabric care symbols on clothing tags
  • get the scoop on home dry-cleaning kits
  • discover the secrets to lint-free drying-and quick fixes for when tissues, crayons, and other foreign bodies take a spin in the dryer

The Queen provides a complete stain removal guide -- and ransacks your cupboard for amazing, inexpensive spot removers including
lemon juice • meat tenderizer • WD-40 • lubricant • salt • shaving cream...and more!
Whether you turn around family-sized wash loads seven days a week, air your dirty laundry at the local laundromat, or are among the seriously "laundry challenged," consult the Queen for no-nonsense advice -- and fabulous results!
