How to Avoid Housework

Tips, Hints and Secrets to Show You How to Have a Spotless Home Without Lifting

Household tips by a popular columnist include fast tidy jobs for unexpected visitors, organizing clutter, creating a self-maintained kitchen, coping with mess-makers, and keeping the bathroom clean.

If you think it’s not possible to have a virtually self-cleaning home—think again! America’s self-proclaimed “#1 Avoidance Expert” tells all in this often hilarious, always smart, and eminently practical compendium of tips, hints, and secrets to maintaining a spotless home by barely lifting a finger. Would you rather arrange flowers and light candles than dust the table they sit upon? Would you rather sweep the dust under the rug than vacuum it? Here at last, in this terrific “antihousework” bible, Paula Jhung blends artful advice, a soupcon of illusion, and a bucketful of wit to whip up super solutions for the “I Hate to Housekeep” brigade. Sweeping (quickly) through every room in the house, Jhung gives you the dirt.
