Baking soda is THE BEST!
Yes, the reviewer is absolutely right, I had a great time putting this book together. It also caused me to put baking soda to work for me in dozens of new ways. (And actually, at parties, it has been a fabulous topic of conversationwho would have thought!) I've loved writing for FAMILY CIRCLE and getting this education in what I call "grown-up" tips instead of just writing my "parenting" tips. Someone asked if I considered my self a "domestic goddess". I'm pondering that title. I'm working on a book of other uses for BAGS and am considering calling myself The Bag Lady. So my self image is in flux. Thank you for your interest. This is really a great book. It has sold over 200,000 copies!
