If you are looking into going green or using less harmful chemicals in your home, this is the book for you. Clean: the humble art of zen-cleaning is written by Micheal deJong.
Moving to New York to become an artist was a little bit harder for deJong than he had hoped. To put a little extra cash in the bank, he began cleaning houses on the side. After several years though, he realised the impact the commercial cleaners were having on his health.
In search of more healthful and effective cleaners, he made some realisations. You could still clean well (if not better) using some cheap alternatives to the commercial cleaners he had used in the past.
If you are ready for the switch, invest in the following 5 products:baking soda, borax, lemon, salt, and vinegar.
DeJong has a recipe for making a cleanser for anything from cleaning your toilet to whitening yellowed cotton or linen fabrics. Get ready. Get set. Go green and clean
