Heirloom Meals: Savoring Yesterday's Traditions Today

Leslie Reichert

Leslie Reichert, affectionately known as the Green Cleaning Coach, has a unique heirloom recipe—her great grandmother’s laundry soap.  Leslie’s heirloom story has a different twist as it is all about old-fashioned cleaning products.  Reflecting on her great-grandmother’s use of simple ingredients such as vinegar, salt, baking soda and even vodka to clean her house, Leslie promotes regular cleaning can be done with completely natural and green products.  Leslie has reached back into our ancestral cleaning ways and used her grandmother’s recipes to write her book “The Joy of Green Cleaning” where she shares a collection of green cleaning recipes for all purposes.
