Environmentally friendly household cleaning products

Original Title

Remue-ménage Produits ménagers maison

Les Mauvaises Herbes are back with a new DIY bible for everyone who wants to live better in their own clean-it-yourself home!

Greencleaning is the logical follow-up to Magic Mixtures: Simple homemade cosmetics, the authors' first book.

With the same minimalist and non-guilt-inducing approach, les Mauvaises Herbes demonstrate the ease of use and effectiveness of homemade household cleaning products, easy to make with just ten or so basic ingredients. As they always do, they lightheartedly dispel myths and explain in language readers can understand all the information needed to clean house in an ecologically responsible way. Among other things, we learn about the importance of PH, the energies involved in cleaning, the effect of acid on mould, and the impact of an oxidant or the sun on a stain, not to mention ingredients that must never be mixed together! In addition, there are roughly forty tried and tested recipes, all containing fun, relevant tips and information.

This is nothing less than the next DIY bible for everyone concerned about taking care of their house and the planet.

  • By making household products at home you can reduce your ecological footprint and save money, issues of major concern to young people. 
  • This activity brings back to the forefront ancient knowledge about using natural products. 
  • Dynamic and congenial authors experienced in the zero-waste movement. Well-explained scientific and historical information, presented in a friendly and precise way. 
  • Simple, easy-to-make, and economical recipes, with a minimalist approach. Magnificent photos and a graphic signature that complement the book's calming and congenial feel.
