Occasionally there comes a book you just shouldn't be without. There is no way any sensible householder should walk past this book without buying it. It gives you a whole new perspective on the every-day objects around you.

As an example, there are nearly 40 new and innovative uses for nail polish, 4 pages of them! This really blew my mind! I discovered ways to remove old chewing gum from the underside of tables, ways to recycle expanded foam packing beans, some intriguing uses for marshmallows, some things to do with that old bottle of castor oil in the back of the pantry, and some surprising uses for the old pantyhose the lady of the house throws out with stunning regularity.

This is a reference book without peer, and leaves poor old Aunty Daisy's Household Handbook in the dust. The price may sound a bit steep at first glance, but when you read it and see all the THOUSANDS of ways you can recycle or multi-use common items you have on hand anyways, you'll soon see the potential savings greatly outweigh the relatively tiny cost.

Overall, if you see this book, you will be doing yourself a great disservice by walking past it. Stop, shake the moths free of the wallet and grab this with both hands, you won't regret it. It will never really become useless, because there will always be something in it that will apply as long as we reside in the material universe.
