  • How can you remove even the toughest stains?
  • How can you make the best use of your microwave and keep meals healthy and tasty?
  • How can you remove mould safely?

Nancy is here to answer all of these questions and more, in her newest book which features 101 thoughtful, cheap and time-saving tips and tricks on how to run a budget home – all while protecting the environment.

Budget-friendly and eco-friendly tips

Building on her astonishing 12p laundry detergent and wildly popular, Pure Magic recipe, The Green Budget Guide includes more of the inspired, sustainable and budget friendly hacks that have made Nancy so loved by readers and followers on social media, as well as tips and tricks from a lifetime spent learning how to run a household efficiently by saving time and money.

“Previous generations were very good at being ‘budget-friendly’ long before ‘eco-friendly’ became an everyday word, so by combining the two we can begin to meet these difficult challenges and actually feel empowered, resilient and resourceful,” says Nancy.
