This is such a great book, I don’t even know where to start! It is full of advice on how to use lemons, baking powder and vinegar as natural cleaning products and also brings back old-fashioned methods that have been used for generations. Cleaning, decorating, restoring old furniture and cooking, are just a few things that you can expect.

Although the book can be used as a reference book, I found myself easily reading it from front to back. The ideas in the book are presented in such a way, that I couldn’t wait getting my hands on a few ingredients and making my own household cleaners!

If you love antique shops, then you will love the chapter on “Antique Fairs” which gives you tips on shopping and caring for antiques, and also antique gift ideas for the whole family.

So whether it is organic gardening, green house cleaning or making your own beauty products, this book has something for everyone.

The 2012 updated version of this book, A Guide to Natural Housekeeping, is available at Exclusive books for about R252
