Book Club: Clean Body
Clean Body: The Humble Art of Zen-Cleaning Yourself by Michael Dejong is the perfect book for both the product-averse and the product-obsessed-whose-bathroom-cabinet-can-hold-no-more.
According to the book, 5 kitchen staples–in various combinations–can cleanse, moisturize, exfoliate all parts of our bodies:
2. White Vinegar
4. Baking Soda
5. Olive Oil
I’m interested in trying some of his “recipes” for body scrubs and face masks. I think I’ll stick with my usual shampoos, though!
I appreciate how Dejong keeps the book light and humorous– far from a militant, anti-consumerist rant, it makes me more willing to give his suggestions a whirl.
