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.

  • It's an encyclopedia of useful household info

    The one tip that down pillows could be washed and put in the dryer has saved me more on dry cleaning than the book cost. Plus I like the way the pillows smell out of the dryer, rather than when back from the drycleaners. I'm 74, so I've picked up a lot on my own over the years, but if I have a question about anything to do with the house, it's my go-to book.

  • Great Reference

    This book may not be full of pretty, colorful pictures like some housekeeping books are, but I'm so glad it isn't. It's chocked full of helpful, easy to read information that covers everything from room organization and cleaning to moving. Some of the info is common sense, some I've heard before, but overall, it's just a great book to go to for answers to everyday cleaning and housekeeping. Great book and I highly recommend it.

  • Great Book

  • Martha

    I'm not a die hard Martha fan, I didn't get this book because her name was on it, I got this book as a reference. The information in this book is well organized (of course, it's Martha!) and presented in an easy to read format. This book covers everything that a newbie would need to know, and a seasoned pro would like to check up on or verify. This would be an excellent book for a house warming gift.
