Homemade Cleaners


Are you looking for an all-inclusive book explaining the science behind cleaning and how you can use it to simplify your cleaning while making your home less toxic? Check out my new book, Homemade Cleaners, cowritten with Dionna Ford of Code Name: Mama.

Many of the very products we purchase to make our homes clean for our families are actually toxic, and because companies are not obligated to share all of the ingredients in their products, you may not even know it. Does that mean you have to spend hours making your own cleaning solutions? No! In Homemade Cleaners, we explain some of the science behind cleaning and then walk readers through simple steps they can take to make their homes less toxic. As busy moms, we understand the need to not only have your home safe  and clean but also the need to not spend a lot of time or moey doing it.


Check out some of the book reviews:

“And WOW … there are recipes for cleaning anything and everything in your home.”

“I highly recommend this book. It’s packed with pertinent information, is well written and easy to read, and one can refer to it without turning on the computer.”

– Reduce Footprints

“I expect that Homemade Cleaners: Quick-and-Easy, Toxic-Free Recipes will be well-loved and dogged eared very soon in my home library. I highly recommend this book for every household that is looking for easy, naturally derived recipes for virtually all of your indoor and outdoor cleaning needs. It would even make a great gift idea for a new bride or new parent.”

– Simply Stacie


“First of all, the title of this book does it no justice. Homemade cleaners are just the tip of the iceberg. In a simple, easy to follow format, the authors explain why it’s so important to care about what’s in your cleaning products before launching into a room-by-room guide. Bathroom, kitchen, floors, walls, furniture–it’s all in there.”

“If you want to make 2014 the year that your home and life gets really green, this book should be your Bible.”
