It’s true - cleaning can be fun! Ever wondered how to get those stains out of your clothes before Mum gets home? What can you do about the squashed banana at the bottom of your schoolbag (the one that’s been there for a couple of weeks)? And how can you clean up your bedroom without spoiling your weekend? From personal hygiene tips (why you should take your finger out of your nose), to ideas for speed cleaning your bedroom, to fun things to make, Shannon Lush and her daughter, Erin, have it covered. Kids can clean, and with Shannon and Erin, you’ll even enjoy it!

About the Author

Never stumped for an answer to a domestic disaster, this ABC Radio personality, wife, mother and grandmother became a ‘surprise’ celebrity in late 2005 with the publication of her first book Spotless, co-written with Jennifer Fleming. Shannon is now a household name. She appears regularly on Channel 9’s THE TODAY SHOW and radio programs in every state plus New Zealand’s Radio NZ and she contributes advice columns to several newspapers and magazines.

Erin Lush is 10 years old and loves playing piano, singing, dancing, acting, designing clothes, horse riding, swimming and writing stories.

Shannon Lush

It all began back on ABC local radio. Shannon Lush the listener used to call in regularly with advice for other listeners who had nasty stains or spills or broken bits or bobs in their homes. She was so informative that she eventually became a regular expert guest on the show.

Shannon knows how to clean or fix virtually anything. She can clearly explain how to unshrink a woollen jumper or rescue the black charred frying pan you were about to throw away. She can identify mysterious moulds and marks, bizarre blots and spots. This led to her first book, Spotless, co-written with Jennifer Fleming, which sold over 650,000 copies and is now a household bible.

Shannon is an artist and fine arts restorer who works in 27 different mediums. She has a passion for old-fashioned chemistry and loves testing handy hints, always avoiding chemical laden products in favour of more traditional ingredients such as bi-carb soda, vinegar and lavender oil.

She has the ability to turn stain removal into fascinating science experiments: ink on your shirt? You need rotting milk. Toddler’s banana on your dress? A pair of wet pantyhose will work wonders. Her tips on everything, from how to organise your fridge to cleaning your house in 15 minutes come like an epiphany, opening up the possibility of a world with less stress and dysfunction and more harmony and calm. Shannon says that a properly organised home will make for a more harmonious life.

Her expertise on stain removal has turned her into an extraordinary phenomenon appealing equally to a male and female audience. Four more bestsellers followed Spotless, all co-written with her partner in grime, Jennifer Fleming: Speedcleaning, How to be Comfy, Save and Spotless 2.

If you think these publications are only about cleaning and stain removal – you’re wrong. They’re about teaching people new systems so they can run an efficient household themselves. Disorder and mess waste time and cause frustration and stress.

Shannon’s methods promise to free you up. Thanks to Shannon, you can stop dreaming of escaping to boutique hotels and tropical-island resorts… and make your own home a haven of domestic bliss. And you’ll be surprised how simple and fun it can be.

Shannon launches her television career with Lush House for The LifeStyle Channel. The 10-part series visits families in their homes to help them clean up and get organised.
