Book Synopsis



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.

I was clueless and living on my own, now my mother feels inferior

5 out of 5 stars
AforAwesome - 4 years ago
I honestly didn't know much about Martha Stewart until I finally got my own place, about 5 years ago. Before that, I assumed Martha was 90% about food/kitchen, and I was in a serious relationship with my microwave. Once I was finally completely independent, I realized how little I knew about how to live independently. Long story long, I stumbled upon some older shows of hers on Hulu (gone now sadly) and have been hooked ever since. While I have not read the book cover to cover, everything I needed help with was easily found in the index. I have highlighted information I knew nothing about previously. There are post-its marking pages containing how to take care of every item I needed help with before purchasing this book. In my opinion, this author has made this a helpful, easy to understand and worthwhile book to have in the home. I may even venture into the kitchen section eventually!
