Customer Reviews
A Bachelor's Dream, August 25, 2002
Reviewer: Anthony Trendl from Wheaton, IL United States
I hate cleaning, and must admit I'm not very good at it. Part of my dislike is wrought out of ignorance. I simply do not know what I'm doing. Cooking is also not a skill I have. I need help.

Haley's Hints teaches me to cheat my way though a lot of household problems. He covers cleaning and cooking tips, but that's just the beginning.

Like the old "Hints from Heloise" I read in the newspaper as a kid, Haley presents very do-able solutions to everyday problems. Unlike Martha Stewart's ideas, which seem unreasonable in the average income family, Haley seems to have considered the practicality of his hints quite aptly.

Whether is it is hiding food odors, discouraging ants or his various methods of removing gum from things, he has a trick to it here in his well organized book.

The guy is thorough. The sheer number of pages will provide plenty of ideas for your home. Besides making a great read for extended bathroom visits, it serves best as a reference. HThe index is impressive and easy to use.

I fully recommend "Haley's Hints: A Compilation" by Graham Haley.

Best Hints Book I've Seen!, August 20, 2002
Reviewer: iciclelady from Ottawa, ON Canada
I received Haley's Hints as a gift from my soon to be sister-in-law. Even though it's not meant to be read cover-to-cover, I did anyway, just because the hints are so fabulous! So far, I've removed impossible burnt-on stains from the drip trays on my stove (Haley's Hint: baking soda and water combined with a little "elbow grease") and saved my favourite shirt from a tomato sauce stain down the front of it (Haley's Hint: Shaving cream and a little scrubbing with a toothbrush), among other things.

This book has saved me a ton of money by letting me use stuff around the house (baking soda, bleach, cream of tartar, shaving cream, etc.) instead of buying those expensive store-bought cleaners. It is organized with a great index that let's the reader find exactly what he's looking for and quickly (important when stains are the issue!).

Very useful., May 12, 1999
Reviewer: A reader from Michigan, USA
I believe I used several of the "hints" within one week of receiving this book. I received it as a gift, and now am giving it as a gift to others. Everyone should have a copy of this book.

Excellent. Pays for itself with just one of it's "hints", January 28, 1999
Reviewer: A reader from USA
This an excellent book to keep handy at all times. Furniture, carpets and countertops can be saved with just normal household items. It also includes tricks for making everyday tasks easier and faster. Anyone of any age will find this book extremely useful. Great gift.
