Format: HARDCOVER BOOK

Size: 6-1/2" x 8"

Full Description

When Thelma Meyer tells it to you, she tells it straight: Clean the kitchen daily! Don't waste anything (not even the water leftover from those potatoes you just boiled)! Always work hard! This philosophy meant that when Thelma's daughter Monica founded Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day products (named after her mom), the products were designed to work hard for you.



Now for the first time, Thelma's sage advice is being made available in this revolutionary cleaning guide chock full of practical tips and secrets based on the premise that life is hectic and messy -- and so keeping your house clean and nice is the only sensible thing to do. With shortcuts and tips for cleaning the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living room, MRS MEYER'S CLEAN HOME contains unexpected advice such as:

--Never use vinegar and water on wood floors. One part dish soap and four parts water is the only way to truly get them clean. And remember to buff with a terrycloth towel.


--Always clean out the fridge before grocery shopping. Serve the kids "Musko" ("must go") for dinner, using the items that were fast approaching expiration.

--Wash windows on a cloudy day to avoid the nasty streaking that happens when the sun's out and glass dry too fast.

MRS MEYER'S CLEAN HOME is two parts common sense and one part inspiration. Read it and learn how to clean like the dickens.

Let's just say...I needed this and I needed this badly. If this book was out when I got married in 2007, my mom would have put it in my suitcase for a little light reading! Thankfully, I did get spurred on by my own motivation to be a better-than-before homemaker. My mom still saw me as the less-than-tidy teenage girl that she argued with and cleaned up after. I was a clutter bug and I always could find my things even if she could not. I was the master of the "wait mom out" technique.

Now I am pretty decent at keeping my home, BUT I love pointers and tips that help me be more efficient in my cleaning tasks because, even if I am good at itnow, I HATE CLEANING!

Here are Hachette's requirements: This is only open to the US and Canada. No P.O. Boxes.

My least favorite cleaning chore is the bathroom toilet! I know that's probably cliche but it's the honest truth! It just grosses me out totally!

Thank you for this giveaway Kelly! I really enjoy your blog!

My least favorite cleaning chore is the oven. Its just disgusting and I put it off for as long as I can.

Household tip: For those caked on leftovers that you just can't get clean out of the pan, take a fabric softener sheet and lay in the pan overnight with a bit of water. Then voila!

I hate dusting just in general. As soon as all the rooms are dusted, it feels like you have to start over again.

I despise cleaning the downstairs bathroom, it is little tiny, half bath. Size of a small closet. Today 5 little boys, using the potty, and the cat litter box is in there. I may just stick a sign on the door OUt Of Order instead of having to clean it AGAIN!!!
Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

I simply hate cleaning burned on stuff off of pots and pans. Incidentally, my favorite cleaning tip is that boiling white vinegar in a pot helps dissolve/loosen up said burned on stuff and makes clean up a whole lot easier!

My least favorite chore is the tubs ~ I hate leaning over and scrubbing.

Eileen Astels Watson said...

I have to pick one? Just one?

Okay, I think it would be vacuuming. The hose always get tangled, or the electrical cord gets tugged from the wall, or the hose catches the baseboard when rounding the corner and snags it out from the wall, or it gets plugged up requiring me to unplug it before finishing the job. Need I go on?

I'd love a copy of this book--I need all the help I can get!

Cleaning the fridge and also picking up dog doo in the yard after the snow melts.

I have two boys so you can guess I hate with great passion to have to clean their bathroom. It's just gross.

Shirley said...

The worst chore for me is washing the dishes. It is especially bad now that the dishwasher quit working and I have to do them by hand. YUK!!!!!!

sharon54220 said...

I would have to say windows & mirrors. When you first do them they look good, but then walk away and they look smeared.

Martha A. said...

I have actually never minded washing toilets and bathrooms, and I have four boys, it is tedious, but not my least liked chore! It actually looks like you did something at least in there!
My least liked chore would have to be washing dishes! I love my dishwasher because I hate, really hate washing dishes.....

A good tip on cleaning would be if you have little children that you have to give a bath too, wipe down the bathroom toilet and sink quickly while they are in the tub. You have to be in there anyhow and the bathroom will stay fresher and not be hard to clean on deep cleaning days!

I got sent over here from Donna at Write by Faith, just so you know!

Suzanne said...

Ironing is the worst chore that I do. I hate it. I'd rather scrub toilets than iron.

Julieanne said...

I never liked cleaning our four huge windows in our living room/dining room, until I learned about "SprayAway", a window cleaning foam spray that requires very little effort, leaves virtually no streaks, and is just so cool to use that my girls even love doing the windows and mirrors now! That's MY kind of window cleaner!

I actually love cleaning! It is kind of relaxing and cathartic. Plus, there is a sense of accomplishment when you are done. There is actually visual proof that you have "done" something.

I really despise cleaning the bathroom! It just really disgust me~!

jerseygirl137 said...

My worst possible cleaning job is the bathroom! From the YUCKY toilet to the tub! Then you have the soap dish in the tile that always runs down the side and into the tub leaving soap scum!

Sara said...

I don't know if this counts as a cleaning "chore", but I can organize my bookshelves all day. As for all other chore, I can't say I ENJOY any of them. Thanks for the contest.

paula h said...

So cliche but I hate cleaning the toilets.

If you have a glass topped stove, lay damp paper towel over the top and let them sit for 10 minutes or so then clean as usually. The dampness will loosen anything that has hardened making it quicker to clean.

Linda said...

I hate cleaning the tubs! And mopping the floors! UGH!!!

Sherrylinn said...

My least favorite (since I don't like any of them) cleaning chore would be cleaning the shower/tub.

I do have a trick for it though - clean the shower just after you've showered. You are already wet, so you can get right in there and scrub the tiles without worry and extra mess!

caroneko said...

I hate it all, to be honest... but the worst is cleaning the bathroom.

Elsie said...

I am like the Cat in the Hat, can't get rid of the thing, for him it's a pink ring...for me it's the dust, it follows me in, and when I do capture it, it comes in again....Dust on my ceiling? Yes, can't explain it... dust falls like rain, if you don't move and just sit!

Could use a few clues....thanks for the giveaway!

Bcteagirl said...

I don't know why, but I just can't bring myself to clean a microwave. Even a relatively clean one! That would be my least favourite chore..
As for a tip: If you put 1/2 C vinegar in the toilet once and a while overnight, you need to clean it less!

Ladytink_534 said...

Cindy B. of Montana said...

My least favorite thing is dusting the baseboards. I have to do it cause we put old fashioned 1/2 inch wide baseboards in when we built our home. Love them, but they're dust collectors. I've finally figured out I could use a fluffy sock on my foot and run it along the top instead of bending over or crawling along the floors...saves my back and knees!

I hate mopping and dusting. If things look orderly and tidy, that goes a long way with me. My best tip is to fold the clothes as you take them out of the dryer. It doesn't take any time, and really does make a difference. You iron less and there are no big laundry piles.

Terrific giveaway. Thanks!

Kelly said...

The cleaning tip that has made my life easier would be to buy a Scrubbing Bubbles toilet wand. Snap on the cloth piece, dip it in the water--the cleaning stuff gets activated--scrub your toilet, press the button, drop the cloth into the water, and flush. You can clean the whole inside of the toilet without messing up your hands! Beautiful. :)

Thank you for the giveaway--I definitely need this!

Lately, I hate anything that requires bending! With back issues, I've become the worst housekeeper! Not proud.... I need serious motivation!

I hate vacuuming. I don't know why, most of the other chores don't bother me so much. I think it's the noise. Most other cleaning jobs are quiet and sort of calming... not vacuuming.

I really hate cleaning. I'm not sure which I hate more, mopping or doing the dishes. I could really use some time saving tips (or a maid! LOL)

I HATE matching socks after doing laundry. With four kids in sizes that look so similar It is almost impossible to get them all matched correctly I'd rather scrub a toilet anyday

I'd have to say my least favorite chore is is dusting. I swear I can dust and then sit down and watch it gather again in seconds. Well maybe I'm exagerating a tiny bit but....it's downright frustrating.

My favorite cleaning tip
didn't dawn on me
'til I was thirty:
the best way to keep
my house clean?
Never get it dirty!


(Okay, okay, I know that doesn't work either. Some weird imps run around my house every night sprinkling dust everywhere! I haven't caught them yet, but if I ever do, I'm gonna' suck 'em up in the vacuum! But... I HATE vacuuming!)

I hate vaccuming. I hate mopping.
The worst is scrubbing out the cat box once month.
I use scoopable litter...but once a month & empited & scrub it out...........gag........ughhhhh!

A quick cleaning tip.

I mix mouthwash & hot water to quick mop& freash the floors.
1 cup mouth wash to 1 gallon hot water.
This is alos less toxic to pet than regular cleaners.
