Clean: The Humble Art of Zen-Cleansing - Michael de Jong The word "cleansing" in the title might make you think this book is about giving yourself coffee enemas and drinking gallons of lemon juice. Or is it lemon juice enemas and drinking gallons of coffee? I can never keep it straight. (Don't ask.)Anyway, that's not what the book's about. It's about using the fab-five Zen-Cleansing ingredients to keep your house, clothing, car, and even your pets, clean and odor-free. Toss out those toxic chemicals and stop poisoning yourself and the planet. You can keep things clean safely and cheaply with baking soda, borax, lemon, salt, and vinegar. De Jong tells you how to (and how not to) use these five ingredients alone or in combination to accomplish any cleaning chore. Clean your oven, remove stains and hard water deposits, unclog a drain, and polish your silver -- all without exposing yourself to the poisons in common cleaning products. (Coffee enemas are, of course, optional.)
