From the Preface of
Home Comforts: The Art and Science of Keeping House

by Cheryl Mendelson~

When you keep house, you use your head, your heart, and your hands together to create a home-the place where you live the most important parts of your private life.

Housekeeping is an art: it combines intuition and physical skill to create comfort, health, beauty, order, and safety.

It is also a science, a body of knowledge that helps is seek those goals and values wisely, efficiently, humanely. Such knowledge is drawn from practical experience, family traditions, the natural and social sciences, and many other stores of understanding and information.
