Few of us enjoy cleaning—more often than not, it feels like a thankless, repetitive task that we must force ourselves to do.

Linda Thomas is an expert, professional cleaner who operated her own ecological cleaning company for more than twenty years. In this unique book, she explores her passion for cleaning, and argues that cleaning can have a profound effect—not just on the spaces we care for, but also on our own wellbeing and personal development.

This lively and readable book is full of anecdotes, practical examples, and ecological cleaning tips from the author’s decades of cleaning experience. Ultimately, she states that, if we elevate our understanding of cleaning, we might even begin to enjoy it!

“Linda emphasizes the importance of rhythm and provides practical guidance for readers who want to put her recommendations into practice. You will almost certainly be galvanized into action by reading this insightful book.”

—Scientific and Medical Network Review

“Linda Thomas's book is really a very helpful guide to raising awareness and awakening in us attention to the conditions we allow to be around us—and affect us—on a daily basis.... A worthwhile and rewarding read.”

—New View
