Very comprehensive, teaches time saving tricks & methods! 3 Aug. 2007
By Modern Blue Argonaut - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was searching for a book that would show me a comprehsive way to keep my home clean without making it my primary focus in life. This book has delivered all I was hoping for and more.

First, I am a decent housekeeper 90% of the time. However, not being a professional I was finding it difficult to get the "Merry Maids" clean look by myself. There were some things I was overlooking and other things I was avoiding simply because I did not know how to accomplish specific cleaning tasks.

After reading this book I armed myself with the right tools, cleaning products, and methods and found this book really does what it says. I am able to go once around the kitchen cleaning counters, cabinets, refrigerator, stove, etc, and then once around cleaning the floors. The kitchen had the Merry Maids look in about 1/3 to 1/2 the normal amount of time I spend cleaning, and it was cleaner!

I have not yet attempted the bathrooms, but I am up the challenge and can't wait to try out the speed clean methods.

I should also note that there are various editions of this book by the same author. This one is the longest at over 400 pages. I am not sure what the other books leave out, but they are only 1/2 as long.

You will also need to invest in a cleaning apron to make this work. I purchased the McGuire Nicholas 72489SBT 5-Pocket Handyman's Tool Pouch, Olive and it is serving me well, but the author sells an even better one that fits his system better. I also found that when you buy your trigger spray cleaners be sure to buy ones with LONG triggers so they will stay hooked into the apron well.

More of the same 3 Feb. 2011
By Woody - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a very nicely compiled book of instrutions on how to clean your house fast.
That is if your house is basically clean to begin with. But in my opinion if your house is so clean you would not really need this book. As I tried to follow his instructions I felt that I was being rushed, is that the idea? I am not sure, it may be great for the gal or guy that wants to make money from cleaning houses, it has wonderful hints on how to get the job done in half the time but for the "average" homemaker male or female it believe it expects too mcuh.
It runs right through all the cleaning without helping you with the really fine tuning. It is what I call swipe and whipe.
So if speed is our thing this book is fine, but if you are like most of us you need to do cleaning in a little more depth this is not for you.
So to be fair I am giving it a 4 star rating becaue it really delivers what the title says.

Review of Campbell/Clean Team's Spead Cleaning 5 Oct. 2011
By rskoney - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Provides a cleaning method that will make your housecleaning faster and efficiemt - suddenly easy, and even interesting. The earlier version, I found, actually was easier to implement for cleaning purposes. This edition has more information and seems more complicated, and less direct, but includes all of the earlier cleaning information. Every person has to clean, and should learn how to do it as well as this book demonstrates it can be done. This book is recommended by the PBS organizing guru, Julie Morgenstern, and worth use for organizing skills needed by all.

nothing revolutionary here 3 Dec. 2012
By Terry Roth - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There is no "secrets" revealed to cleaning in here. Its a book that lists what cleaning materials you will need (brush? sponge? really? who would have thought?) and basically how to clean each room (and it says don't get distracted - maybe there should have been an addendum chapter on ADD issues)..

If you just stepped off the boat and never cleaned before, this is a "need to know" how to clean a house using materials you find in a grocery store. There are no new formulas or special invented cleaning products ...just basically how to scrub, wipe, clean, disinfect with bleach (wow! really??) and vacuum.

Wish I had read this years ago! 2 Oct. 2012

What a wonderful book! More than informative, this book takes the reader through cleaning each room in the house step by step! i cleaned my kitchen and bathroom this way a few days ago and saved myself loads of time. The book also tells you which product to use for just about any surface or object and the list goes beyond the products sold on the website. This would be great as part of a bridal shower gift or a gift for someone moving in to a new home. My grandmother taught me to clean; her house was so clean one could almost literally "eat off the floors", but that's all she did! This book is for the woman or man who wants the house to be more than decently clean, but also holds down a job and has loads of other activities. Worth the money and then some!
