Review and Giveaway!
No-Nonsense Advice that Will Inspire You to CLEAN like the DICKENS
by Thelma Meyer's

Whether we're trying to keep a one bedroom apartment clean or a huge house full of kids, we can always use help with cleaning. Mrs. Meyer's Clean Home could be the answer!


Who is Mrs. Meyer? Thelma Meyer, mother of nine children, was the inspiration for the Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day line of natural cleaning products. This product line was developed by Thelma's daughter Monica. The purpose of the book is not to promote these products, but instead, tells us it's not what you clean with, it's also HOW you clean. The book offers many tips for do-it-yourself cleaners using basic ingredients like baking soda, lemon juice and vinegar.

The book provides a recommended cleaning schedule, outlining tasks to be managed on a daily, weekly, monthly and even yearly basis. Chapters take the reader through the different rooms of the house with tips and detailed instructions for each of those rooms. I found this approach
really helpful. On top that, for each room she gives you a list of helpful cleaning tools and products to have on hand.


Usually books of this genre are dry , but that isn't the case with this book. The advice is straight-forward, and Mrs. Meyer's personality definitely shines through. I don't know about the rest of you, but I can always use advice and tips on how to clean better and faster. I would have loved to have this book when my kids were little. It would have saved me from a few disasters they created. (Ask me sometime about the crib full of chocolate ice cream!)


An emphasis is placed on using natural, non-toxic products where possible and conserving water and energy. Mrs. Meyer's Clean Home will be available in bookstores on 3/2/09 and is
available now for pre-order at Amazon.com.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
