Publishers Text

Following on the success of the best-selling first edition, here is an entirely new collection of 1,715 ingenious uses for items in your pantry that can save you hundreds of dollars, oodles of time, and lots of hassle - plus help the environment in the process. A team of researchers and writers were sent out to talk with chefs, landscapers, herbalists, pet-store owners, carpenters, decorators, and many more experts to find the very best tips and tricks for getting things done quicker, easier, cheaper - and by only using items already available around the house. Most of the solutions are accomplished without chemicals, therefore they are healthier for you, your family, and the environment.

The thirteen chapters focus on an integral part of everyday life. For the Cook: Learn how to extend the life of vegetables, tried-and-true methods for baking bread, and 10 kitchen uses for salt. For the Housekeeper: Discover faster, easier cleaning ideas, such as remove carpet stains with peanut butter, and 10 ways to clean with lemon. For the Handyman (or woman): Silence squeaky hinges with shaving cream, remove rust from tools by rubbing them with a slice of raw potato dipped in salt, and 10 neat home-repair uses for nail polish.

Filled with special features that will inform, instruct, and entertain - "Household Superstar!" details many uses for popular home ingredients; "Make Your Own" offers simple, natural recipes; "Curiosity Corner" lets you dip into a veritable grab bag of novelty ideas; and "What's the Story?" brings you the surprising histories of household items.
