The Lorrie Moore short story, or the Tina Fey memoir, of cleaning tutorials."--Dwight Garner, "The New York Times" "Thrillingly titled. . . . For a generation overwhelmed not just by dust bunnies, but by bong water on the carpet, pee stains on the ceiling and vomit seemingly everywhere, Jolie Kerr dispenses cleaning advice free of judgment. . . . A Mrs. Beeton for the postcollege set." --Penelope Green, "The New York Times" "Jolie Kerr really cuts through the grease and grime with her new book. I do what she tells me to do."--Amy Sedaris The author of the hit column "Ask a Clean Person" offers a hilarious and practical guide to cleaning up life's little emergencies Life is filled with spills, odors, and those oh-so embarrassing stains you just can't tell your parents about. And let's be honest: no one is going to ask Martha Stewart what to do when your boyfriend barfs in your handbag. Thankfully, Jolie Kerr has both staggering cleaning knowledge and a sense of humor. With signature sass and straight talk, Jolie takes on questions ranging from the basic--how do I use a mop? --to the esoteric--what should I do when bottles of homebrewed ginger beer explode in my kitchen? "My Boyfriend Barfed in My Handbag" proves that even the most nightmarish cleaning conundrums can be solved with a smile, the right supplies, and a little music.Read Less
Very Good. Paperback Advanced Reading Copy. Paperback Plain cover pre-release first edition. ARCs are collectible and may increase in value. Artwork will be black and white and some artwork and images might be missing. Copies are not final and there may be some typos.
Good. Connecting readers with great books since 1972. Used books may not include companion materials, some shelf wear, may contain highlighting/notes, may not include cdrom or access codes. Customer service is our top priority!
There are no surprise cleaning tips here, just the same useful solutions found in other cleaning books. I found her sense of humor irritating and repetitive, made the book longer w/o making it more interesting.
"How to Clean Practically Anything" is a classic of this genre.
