In recent years, there has been a plethora of products created to clean and maintain the home. Newer, however, isn't always better. Many of today's products are expensive, bad for the environment and don't work any better than Grandma's methods that cost only pennies.
The Country Almanac of Housekeeping Techniques That Save You Money teaches readers the creative housekeeping secrets of our fore-mothers for maintaining homey houses without modern day expenses. Author Richard Freudenberger has collected hundreds of formulas for effective cleaning on the cheap (and green to boot!) and ways our ancestors saved on heating bills and maintained cozy, charming homes with little besides their ingenuity.
This comprehensive encyclopedia gathers the least expensive ways of taking care of everything in your house-from dishes and laundry, to healthy meals, to the best ways to get the longest life out of every household item from pots and pans to pillowcases.
