Going through this book helped me rethink several aspects of cleanliness that we often overlook - dust mites etc in your pillows/bedding and window curtains/drapes; the usefulness of sunlight as a cleaning agent; the deception behind the new car smell and so on. It gets these ideas across in a thoughtful manner, in going beyond the green washing that companies often use nowadays and understand the real impact of a consumer choice - Is a local non-organic apple better than an organic apple from far away Chile?
More practically it offers several solutions for maintaining a healthy living condition. The chapter on home "recipes" for day to day cleaning agents is useful.
