Publisher's Summary

The Best Hacks and Tips for Cleaning and Organizing Your Home!

Hacks are wonderful shortcuts and clever tricks to make things much easier in your life. These household hacks are innovative solutions to many of the problems you may face on a regular basis at home. Some will appear completely logical to you, while others will seem utterly counter-intuitive. However, they all are marvelously effective!

This audiobook covers all kinds of "hacks" to make your home a better place to hang out. You won't need a chemistry lab to make the non-toxic cleaning solutions that are described in detail; ordinary kitchen ingredients will do. The cleaning solutions and household management tips are designed to help you clean and manage your home most efficiently, all the while saving money, avoiding allergic triggers, and minimizing your damage to the environment.

Included are chapters that target key areas of the home. In the opening chapter on the kitchen, you will gain key tips for fighting grease, cleaning dishes, and killing germs, for starters. Germs are also the focus in the chapter on the bathroom cleaning hacks, along with tips for non-fogging mirrors, toilet cleaners that rock, and how a commonly used item from the laundry room can make your glass shower doors sparkle! You will be treated to key tips - from the author of a deeply practical book on sleep - for making your bedroom an oasis of calm and restorative rest. Throughout the book are hacks for simplifying your life, maximizing your money, building a safe environment for children, and creating an inviting ambience for both yourself and your guests.

    "lots of useful hacks in this audio book"
    Would you listen to Household Hacks: 150+ Do It Yourself Home Improvement & DIY Household Tips That Save Time & Money again? Why?

    This is a great book of recipes for cleaning products that you can make at home using things that you probably already have somewhere in your home, such as baking soda, white vinegar, water, essential oils, and yes, even vodka! What I like most is that it includes safety warnings to make sure you don't get hurt using it, like avoiding just pouring the floor cleaning product on the floor, because it might make it super slippery. Not only that, but it also covers ways to organize your home better and clear up clutter, making it a great combination of things to do to help your house function better and in an all-natural way.I would listen again to take notes on the various recipes that are available for cleaning products.

    "Clean Without the Toxins"

    I love to learn new ways to clean and organize my house without the use of toxic chemicals! Well, at least the cleaning part is toxin-free. This book has both the cleaning and the organizing down pat. With close to two hundred separate tips, it was bound to reveal a few I hadn't yet heard, and boy, did it deliver!

    My favorite was the trick of cleaning burnt-in food from pots that appear to have no hope. With a couple common household ingredients and 48 hours of just sitting there, the black stuff just floated off the metal. I was dubious, but I tried it and this hack really did work.

    Now to tackle the juice stains on my favorite armchair. No, I didn't make them, but I sure want to get rid of them!

    "Save Money With Ideas From Household Hacks"
    Would you listen to Household Hacks: 150+ Do It Yourself Home Improvement & DIY Household Tips That Save Time & Money again? Why?

    Yes, I would definitely listen to "Household Hacks..." again because there are so many good DIY ideas to save money with so many ingredients. If I need to clean something, and I can't get it, I can make it myself.


    What other book might you compare Household Hacks: 150+ Do It Yourself Home Improvement & DIY Household Tips That Save Time & Money to and why?

    If I was to compare "Household Hacks" to another book written by Ace McCloud, I think it would be "Money, Saving Money..." The reason I chose this book is because it teaches you how to save as much as you can, and what better way than to start by making your own cleaning products, etc.


    Which character – as performed by Joshua Mackey – was your favorite?

    Well since "Household Hacks" is a DIY book, there were no characters in it, so if I had to choose, it would be Joshua Mackey for his narration, and Ace McCloud for his writing.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Again, this is a DIY, self-improvement book, it did not make me laugh or cry.

    What did you love best about Household Hacks: 150+ Do It Yourself Home Improvement & DIY Household Tips That Save Time & Money?

    I enjoyed how the book showed me cost effective AND easy ways to improve my home. As a mother, I think it is important to learn simple tips using items that I already have in my home. It definitely reduces the hassle of having to run out last minute in case of emergencies.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Beyond the content, I liked the enthusiasm of the speaker. The questions that were asked to the speaker really made the book more lively! I think this content has the ability to sound dry, but the style and technique of the writing of this book really brought it to life!


    Have you listened to any of Joshua Mackey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any of his other performances.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The tag line would be 'Simple, Easy, and Fun! Discover the numerous methods of transforming your home'

    "Great timne and money saving tips for everyone!"

    This audio is filled with time and money saving hacks that are easy to implement! I have had a smelly dishwasher for a while now and learned how to easily get rid of the smell! It's also super handy to know how to make my own all natural cleaning solutions. The idea of putting velcro on my remote control to hold it to my cofee table in a designated spot was something I put into practice and thoroughly enjoying having my remote in that spot whenever I need it. There are too many hacks to list, biut a few more of my favorites where how to remove rust easily and the chapter on organizing is a must listen to for anybody. Well worth the money to get all the powerful information here. Highly recommended!

    "I love a good life hack"

    This is a really cool guide with lots of ideas you can use around the house to be more efficient, organised and to save some money. I particularly enjoyed the section about homemade cleaning solutions made out of common ingredients as I am very conscious that shop bought products contain a lot of harmful chemicals that can be very bad for your health. There are lots of little ideas I am going to try from this book.

    "Practical household hacks and tricks"
    Any additional comments?

    This book can be a great help to anyone who wants to learn new household hacks and tricks and save money. For example, many everyday issues are covered such as fighting the grease or learning the benefits of using washing soda in the household (more than I was aware of so far).
    In this book you can learn how to make your own washing soda, all purpose cleaners, antibacterial cleaners or other type of cleaners.
    No more stinky onion hands – superb advice!
    If you want a sparkling house make sure you take notes or go through this book a few times trying to remember all the useful tips and tricks.
