Clean: The Humble Art of Zen-Cleansing by Michael de Jong is a book I came across while wandering through a bookstore while enjoying much cooler temperatures out-of-state. Using five basic ingredients, (six counting water), the book includes recipes to clean everything with a combination of baking soda, borax, lemon, salt and vinegar. That's it.

Clean Body: The Humble Act of Zen-Cleansing Yourself carries the same premise for cleansing yourself with combinations of baking soda, lemon, olive oil, white vinegar and salt. A review of that book is at the blog critics website.

This book is available on-line; remember to support your independent bookstore!

Revisiting the previous green cleaning post reminded me that green cleaning is not only good for the environment, but saves money, too.

By the way, Tallahassee, I came across a college student-oriented book store that sells used fiction and non-fiction books for 99 cents each, which helps lower the cost of the used text books they also sell.
