How to Cheat at Cleaning by Jeff BrendenbergHow to Cheat at Cleaning: Time-Slashing Techniques to Cut Corners and Restore Your Sanity

All hail the man called the guru of dirt! Brendenberg leads us not into cleaning frustration but delivers us to those places—hiking trails, trout streams—where we’d rather be instead of dusting the mantel.

First, we learn that perfection is overrated; after all, we have busy lives and standards that should be “somewhere south of Martha Stewart.” The book’s tips range from practical (despite the advertising, ventilation ducts don’t need to be cleaned regularly) to irreverent (for guys: “Being in charge of a cleaning job is a valid excuse to buy tools”), and you’ll love the snappy charts and suggestion boxes gracing each chapter.

(Taunton, $12.95)
