I love books. When I need advice on something, I’m more likely to seek the answer in a book than anywhere else. When I first got started making my own cleaning products, I was inspired by some great books on cleaning. I started out just looking for tips on making my cleaning routine easier. What I found were handbooks on introducing a few toxic-free products into my home. Here are a few of my favourite cleaning and organising books, including tips on natural cleaning.
The Complete Book of Clean
By Toni Hammersley of A Bowlful of Lemons. Toni has written a few books on cleaning and organising the home. The Complete Book of Clean is a book of tips and techniques for your home, covering every room in the house. There are even checklists and recipes for a multitude of cleaning products.
Clean my space
By Melissa Maker of cleanmyspace.com. This is one of my favourite all-round cleaning books. Melissa has used her own approach to cleaning to develop a method of “cleaning better faster”. I love her book because her techniques work and there are some receipes and recommendations too. Her YouTube channel is always worth checking out.
By Becky Rapinchuk, founder of Clean Mama. Another time-saving book with plenty of recipes for environmentally friendly supplies, Simply Clean is perfect if you are looking for a way to shake up for cleaning routine. I love it for the how to clean section which covers everything from organising your underwear to cleaning the coffee machine.
An Edited Life
By Anna Newton of The Anna Edit. This is less of a cleaning book and more of a how to sort out your life book! Covering life, work and the home, Anna gives advice on decluttering everything from your desk to you wardrobe (I love the section on creating a capsule wardrobe), to edit your life and spend your time more wisely.
