"NEW YORK TIMES "BESTSELLER "Wise and funny. . . . 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.
Fair. We ship the same or next day and provide a tracking number with point to point tracking info. A book with obvious wear. May have some damage to the cover and pages but integrity still intact. Photo is a stock catalog image cover may be different.
Good. A copy that has been read, but remains in clean condition. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact (including dust cover, if applicable). The spine may show signs of wear. Pages can include limited notes and highlighting, and the copy can include "From the library of" labels or limited small stickers. Book may have a remainder mark or be a price cutter.
Very good. Publisher overstock or return with minor shelfwear. May have remainder mark. Carefully inspected. Leaves our warehouse same or next business day. Most continental U.S. orders lead time 4-10 days. Thank you for your business.
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.
