Exciting News – Introducing Fresh Clean Home!

Hello!  Today I wanted to share some really exciting news!

This year I have been busy beavering away behind the scenes, to produce a book!  It’s called Fresh Clean Home, and it’s packed full of over 35 natural cleaning recipes for every corner of your home.  The photography and styling are just stunning, and as well as looking lovely I hope it will be a really useful green cleaning book that you find yourself referring to time and time again.

Fresh Clean Home is being published by Pavilion in hardback format.  It will retail for £12.99 and is available to pre-order on Amazon right now.  It will also be available in other bookshops (online and in-store) on 1st February, so you can purchase it from your preferred vendor.

Here’s a run down as to what it’s all about!

What’s Fresh Clean Home All About?

Fresh Clean Home is all about me sharing my very favourite green cleaning recipes and methods, to allow you to clean your home without the use of harsh or questionable chemicals.  I’ve even troubleshooted why green cleaning recipes you might have tried in the past haven’t worked and suggested methods that will work.

What Kind of Recipes Are In It?

There are over 35 recipes for cleaning every area of your home.  From natural laundry detergent, to kitchen and bathroom cleaners, to eco friendly oven cleaning gel, to how to deal with mould and mildew effectively.  I’ve also shared the holy grail of green cleaning – an actual clinging toilet bowl cleaner that works just like those bleach based alternatives!

What Ingredients Does Fresh Clean Home Use?

There are no unusual or difficult to source ingredients in Fresh Clean Home.  The main ingredients I use are easily sourced and include staples such as borax substitute, soda crystals, bicarbonate of soda, essential oils, and liquid castile soap.  The ingredients can be used again and again in other recipes in the book.

Does Everything Smell of Vinegar?

In short: no.  Whilst I think vinegar is a great natural cleaner I don’t think it’s the best solution in every circumstance, so there are a lot of non vinegar based products in the book.  I’ve even included alternative recipes if vinegar just isn’t your thing.

Are the recipes time consuming to make?

No: I’m mindful that we all live busy lifestyles, so many products can be whipped up in just a few seconds.  There are a few recipes that take a bit longer to make but these are all signposted!

It’s been a real labour of love and I can’t wait to share it with you on 1st February!

  1. Oh my goodness! That’s so exciting. Definitely gonna pre-order this right now. I’m using Ecover and Method at the moment, but I would love to be able to make my own instead so I know what’s actually in them because even those two are very vague about what’s in their products. You’re right, from the photos you’ve shared, the photography looks stunning.

    • Thank you Rosie! I used to use Ecover and Method but now we’re about a year or so into using homemade laundry powder and i won’t go back! I can make a load for not much money that lasts for around 3 months or so (and I do a lot of laundry!). I’m really pleased with the photos they took – beyond my skill level for sure!

  2. Well done and am very much looking forward to buying a copy. Your photography looks very stylish and do hope that you’ll reveal where to buy such lovely accessories.

    Since discovering your blog you’ve inspired me to follow your recipes for cleaning products as well as rethinking how to reduce household waste. The recipes work, they’re not overly complicated and it’s great that ingredients can be used across a number of recipes.

    Thank you Wendy!

    • Thank you Elaine for all of your kind words! I can’t take credit for the photography – all down to the team at Pavilion! I just told them how I wanted it to look and they did all the magic!
