    Spotless, Speed Cleaning etc - worth it?

    Just started watching Lush House on the Lifestyle Channel and am enjoying it. So I was wondering was it worth picking up her books Speedcleaning and Spotless. Think she has another one out called Save. Does anyone have them who can comment on them?

    I have them, a lot of the stuff is similar to what flylady does but the cleaning recipes and little tricks are definitely worth it if you're not familiar with them.

    I have checked out both and didn't find them too useful but DID like "Confessions of an Organized Homemaker". I bought it on Amazon for about $35 and it talks more about organising your house so cleaning is easier.

    I might watch a few more episodes to see if I need the book or not. It is just a matter of trying to remember it all. I do have some older books, one is old fashioned tips and the other is about eco stuff, just not recent. I should see if I can find them and if they cover what I want.

    I think for those things Astrid its a great source And its definitely handy to keep around, for me its good for a rehash. But I definitely need some more organising ideas.

    I have all of the Lush books (spotless, spotless 2, save, how to be comfy, speed clean - I think that's it). I love them. I don't use them religiously, but I always go to the index if I want to find something out and they've really become my quick reference guide. I have post-it flags in them and dog earred pages where I want to be able to refer quickly to the same page more often.

    Spotless is awesome, I'm always referring to it for stain removals.

    Speed Cleaning is good too, I'll never follow it to the letter but it's nice to pretend I will!

    Might be worth picking up Spotless, I often want to refer to things and prefer to use a book than the net, otherwise I end up staying on the laptop and get nothing done.

    Thanks for all the feedback ladies

    Went out and bought both Spotless books. After watching a few more Lush House episodes I realised that they would be so useful for us. Tried to get Speedcleaning, but could not find a copy. May have to look online as there are not many bookshops here.

    I have both but find "speed cleaning" fantastic. Tips from spotless can be found on the net, so probably not worth buying the book...

    I like info in hard copy, don't want to have to fire up the laptop and hope the net connection is working when I need to know how to get out that stain NOW!
