Joey Green's Fix-It Magic  Oct 29, 2008
Light reading and practical ideas for common household repairs. I used the method presented for taking down all the wallpaper in our kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms using a bucket of vinegar and water; much cheaper and more practical than going out to buy products that don't work. Also, this book provides fun ways to spend time with my children experimenting with the various methods; they find it amazing to see other uses for household items. It makes science fun for the family. This book makes for a great stocking stuffer at Christmas time, or a thank you gift for a teacher. It's something different and fun to read.
Nothing But a WASTE of Money!  Aug 27, 2008
I can't believe I actually paid money for this!

First of all, please note that of the "1,971 solutions" many of them are nearly identical solutions, i.e. remove a water ring by rubbing with Johnson's Baby Oil, remove a water ring by rubbing with Star Olive Oil, remove a water ring by rubbing with Wesson Corn Oil, remove a water ring by rubbing with Land O' Lakes Butter, remove a water ring by rubbing with Vaseline Petroleum Jelly, remove a water ring by rubbing with Turtle Wax (there's more but I'll stop there, you get the idea).

Next, some of the statements REALLY stretch the truth, like saying "fix a broken dishwasher with Tang"--when actually Tang will clean soap scum from the tubes and pipes of a dishwasher, but if it's truly broken, well, Tang's not gonna help you much. . .

What I'll say now will give away probably over half the "1,971 solutions" but I'll say it anyway; Bounce Fabric Softener Sheets will repel or remove just about anything! (now wasn't that quicker and easier than reading a hundred or so pages of solutions where the answer is Bounce?)

Have I mentioned that my kids immediately proved some of the statements false? The book says ants will not walk through flour and also won't walk across salt, (so make a line with flour or sprinkle salt where ants are coming in, to keep them out) yet when placed in the middle of a thick ring of salt or flour, our ants walked right over them with no hesitation. . .

Also I have to say I was disappointed with the "strange facts." Many are things such as "The simplist way to prevent an abundance of weeds is to pull weeds before they seed" and "When natural catastrophes strike, the first possessions people take with them are photo albums and pets."

Sorry, but this is NOT a "practical guide" nor a "great gift."
Fix-it Magic  Aug 25, 2008
A very informative read using alot of everyday household items on hand along with being user friendly and eliminating the use of hazardous cleaners...some products use some interesting combinations needless to say but i feel that this book is certainly a worthwhile read and can save you some money overall..
