Book ReviewsDon Asletts Stain-Busters Bible by Don Aslett-Book Review
Who other than the world's number one cleaning expert and author of numerous books on cleaning could offer this much on stain removal? Don Aslett's "Stain Buster's Bible: The Complete Guide To Removing Stains and Odors From Every Fabric and Surface" is the most advanced and user-friendly stain-removal guide ever.
In Aslett's usual no-nonsense get to the point style, he provides the best of his fifty plus years of cleaning experience, as well as other expert's in the field's experience, to give you the best stain removal strategies available.
The first part of the book focuses on stainbuster basics such as what not to do and why these things turn tiny spots into big stains, the basic stain-removal strategy for washables, old standbys from club soda to toothpaste to meat tenderizer, the tools of the trade, the tricks of the trade, an overview of standbusting strategy in general and of the overall landscape of stains, and stain safety. (Keep yourself safe while dealing with hazardous substances)
Part two of this book tackles the most common spots and stains and how to remove them. Over almost 100 pages, Aslett covers stains from acids to wood stains, with just about everything in between. He covers things such as ink, jelly, milk, mustard, paints, soft drinks, and many, many more. This part also covers the ABCs of home odor control. If something smells, there is a good chance Aslett has a solution for you in this book.
Part three is called "More Stainbusting Savvy" and it contains tips on figuring out the surface the stain is on so you can best treat it, working with your dry cleaner to get the best results, knowing when to quit, and finally a chapter on preventing stains in the first place, because as Aslett points out, "preventing them is a lot easier than removing them."
I highly recommend this book as an addition to Aslett's other cleaning books if you want the best advice available for dealing with spills. Stains are a part of life, but Aslett has the solution to deal with them.
