Review: Home-Ec 101: Skills for Everyday Living

This is the review I posted on

Home-Ec-101-Book-Cover.pngFull of hints, tips and techniques written in that funny, quirky Heather style. If you know Heather (I do), you'll know what I mean. If you don't know Heather, you'll get an idea of the kind of person she's like as you read the book. Perhaps the most entertaining book on home economics you'll ever read.

Heather's book, like her website, is divided into 4 sections: Cook it, Clean it, Wash it, Fix it. Each section includes tips, techniques, hints and suggestions for dealing with various parts of the household, interspersed with posts from the website. You'll find the toilet cleaning tutorial on pg 66. Basic mending techniques for clothing are covered in chapter 10. Save time dealing with laundry by skipping the underwear folding (pg 119). Do you burn water in the kitchen? Head straight for the Cook it section.

It's a great book to read that will leave you chuckling and ready to take on the house.
