5.0 out of 5 stars Haley's Cleaning Hints April 21 2004
This book is perfect for the person who likes to keep old
possessions looking new. There are a plethora of hints including
"how to do the following" :
o clean tile with a toothbrush and toothpaste
o remove white chalk with hosiery
o clean with vinegar
o make copper look new with water and salt followed by an
application of lemon polish
o soak red wine with a paper towel and remove with borax and
o remove tea stains with baking soda
o clean silver with hot water, salt and water softener
o remove wax from the carpet with hairdryer heat and soften wax
until removal on a paper towel
o remove bath stains with hydrogen peroxide and cream of tartar
o remove chocolate stains with water softeners stirred in water
o remove ink with hairspray and soap
These are just a few of the helpful hints described in the book.
The presentation is easy to read. This acquisition is a must
if you seek to preserve household goods in virtual perpetuity.
The work is a solid value for the money spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Repentant Slob March 10 2003
Given the choice between, say, scrubbing my broiler pan and taking a nap, I'll take the nap, every time.
But wait -- I got my hands on a copy of this book last week (I'm a sucker for anything PBS) and I'm a new woman. Not only have I been dipping my own silver stuff in that miraculous tarnish-dissolving bath...
(a basin of hot water plus a hefty tablespoon of Calgon water softener and another tablespoon of salt, plus a sheet of submerged aluminum foil, lining the bottom of the basin -- dip your candlestick, making sure it touches the aluminum foil, and shazaam! it's shiny)
...but now I'm actually BORROWING tarnished silver from other people just so's I can play in the sink and make stuff shine.
I think I have a new hobby. Today's project is to discover the original enamel under all the cooked-on gunk on my broiler pan. (One of my recurring fantasies is to be so rich some day that I can toss out my broiler pan after every use and get a new one. If this works, I'll be needing a new fantasy.)
-- Janis Jaquith, Public-Radio commentator and author of BIRDSEED COOKIES: A FRACTURED MEMOIR

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Compendium for the Household April 27 2003
"Haley's Cleaning Hints" is a follow-up to the original "Haley's Hints" which sold over 400,000 copies. The most popular section of the original book was the one on cleaning. As a result the Haleys compiled "Haley's Cleaning Hints".
This book contains thorough instructions for cleaning just about anything you might encounter. From specific stains like fruit juice and ink to specific products like chewing gum, to specific items like garden tools or barbeque grills, it covers just about any cleaning problem. Best of all, most of the procedures involve using ordinary household items like baking soda, ammonia, and vinegar. "Haley's Cleaning Hints" is a highly recommended purchase for anyone seeking a reference book on cleaning anything quickly and easily with common household products.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you need for safe cleaning Jan. 30 2001
In addition to the usual good tips for cleaning stains and silverware, this book is especially valuable for the section on home-made cleaning products.
Look at your grocery store bill; if you bought cleaner for your glass and surfaces, your bathroom and your kitchen, you may have paid a lot! Why not make your own cleaners from recipes in this book. You'll save money and even make a safer, more wholesome cleaning product. Especially good if you have asthma and can't tolerate perfumes or scents.
Also good is the recipe for fruit and vegetable wash. It's a good habit to get into to wash your produce before using. All in all, this is a very useful and fun book to use and read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haley saved my day! March 16 2003
Do you ever feel just like giving up after scrubbing and scrubbing and the stain won't come up with the "new and improved" expensive cleaning product you just bought? Yeah, well I did many times - until I read this gem of a book. Talk about a lifesaver - not the candy, this book!
I had some apple cranberry juice stains that were blood red on my sheets that the cleaners couldn't do anything with - after reading this book I added a homemade mixture specified by Graham Haley and presto they're as good as new. Not to beat a dead horse, but this book should be on everyone's book shelf for eternal reference - a killer helper!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Wedding Present I Received! May 24 2001
We received this book as a wedding present a couple of months ago, and it is the best gift we got! There are all kinds of wonderful ideas in here--a whole section on caring for different types of flooring (wood, linoleum, tile), cleaning anything you can imagine, a stain removing bible. . .it has everything. This book is going to become my standard wedding present to new couples. This is second only to a phonecall to mom.

I ordered and paid for this book in November 2003 and have yet to receive it and it is now March 24, 2004. I have e-mailed bibliophiliacs on at least three occassion but they have yet to relpy to any of my e-mails.
I will never do business with this organization again is they do their business this way.
