Book Description

Oct. 31 2006
Whether your home is small or large, an apartment in the city or a country cottage, it is a space that should be at once beautiful and livable. The key to that is managing the upkeep without feeling flustered. Until now, there has never been a comprehensive resource that not only tells how to care for your home and everything in it, but that also simplifies the process by explaining just when. With secrets from Martha Stewart for accomplishing the most challenging homekeeping tasks with ease, this detailed and comprehensive book is the only one you will need to help you keep your home looking its best, floor to ceiling, room by room.

In Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook, Martha shares her unparalleled expertise in home maintenance and care. Readable and practical–and graced with charts, sidebars, illustrated techniques, and personal
anecdotes from Martha’s decades of experience caring for her homes–this is far more than just a compendium of ways to keep your house clean. It covers everything from properly executing a living room floor plan to setting a formal table; from choosing HEPA filters to sealing soapstone countertops; from organizing your home office to polishing your silver and caring for family heirlooms.

Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook is organized for clarity and maximum practicality:

Room by Room covers the upkeep of the appliances, tools, furnishings, and surfaces found in each room, from the entryway to the kitchen, from the attic to the laundry room.

Throughout the House instructs the reader on the proper ways to routinely clean and periodically maintain everything in the home, including dusting, sweeping, vacuuming, polishing, scrubbing, waxing and much more.

Comfort and Safety focuses on techniques to ensure your home is running properly and safely, such as recognizing when to clean vents, fixing a leaky faucet, and eradicating pests.

A-to-Z Materials Guide provides an invaluable resource that explains the unusual materials that many favorite objects are made of–from abalone to zinc–
and how to care for them so they last.

Encyclopedic yet friendly, Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook is a seminal work–a must-have for everyone who wants a well-cared-for home that will endure for generations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great volume Nov. 14 2006
By David
This is rich looking, big and a wonderful book. Before I got this book, my life at home was out of order and everything was a mess. After reading this book, I had a host of ideas to help me organize my food pantry, redecorate my living room, bedroom and bathroom, etc, etc. My life is now more orderly and much simpler at home. My home has become a more pleasant place to spend time. Keeping my home in order after all these changes requires virtually no maintenance. Martha's ideas were not costly at all. I discovered that I could use things that I already had around my house. I found new and more practical uses for literally 100's of objects in my home. I found the seasonal checklists exremely useful. This big volume has so much good advice that I can't imagine that there'd be someone out there who couldn't gain some insight from Martha's tips. I recommend this book to anyone who needs a little organizing in their lives. Great work!

5.0 out of 5 stars Got me on track Oct. 21 2009
Yup this book has everything. I have owned it now for four years and have got two houses up and running with all her advice. It is very helpful. I have even lent it to a couple of friends who were settling in to new houses.

It is a great reference tool for everything. Whenever I am having to buy something new for the house (mattresses, pillows, carpeting, kitchen counters etc.) I refer to it for advice. She doesn't go wrong. My new kitchen is fabulous and functional. Incredibly functional. So is my laundry room and all my bedrooms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should own this! Jan. 9 2011
Any question you have pertaining to issues around setting up and maintaining a home are found inside this thorough, concise and easy to read book. Within the first week of owning it, I successfully unclogged our shower drain without using toxic drain cleaner. The book is full of wonderful recommendations for choosing myriad household products, from scrub brushes to appliances. I will buy one for my daughter when she graduates high school and leaves home, as I know it will be an invaluable tool for her.
