My Boyfriend Barfed in My Handbag ... and Other Things You Can't Ask Martha



My Boyfriend Barfed in My Handbag proves that even the most nightmarish cleaning conundrums can be solved with a smile, the right supplies, and a little music.

The author of the hit column 'Ask a Clean Person' offers a hilarious and practical guide to cleaning up life's little emergencies

Life is filled with spills, odors, and those oh-so-embarrassing stains you just can't tell your parents about. And let's be honest: no one is going to ask Martha Stewart what to do when your boyfriend barfs in your handbag.

Thankfully, Jolie Kerr has both staggering cleaning knowledge and a sense of humor. With signature sass and straight talk, Jolie takes on questions ranging from the basic—how do I use a mop? —to the esoteric—what should I do when bottles of homebrewed ginger beer explode in my kitchen? My Boyfriend Barfed in My Handbag proves that even the most nightmarish cleaning conundrums can be solved with a smile, the right supplies, and a little music.

'Jolie Kerr really cuts through the grease and grime with her new book. I do what she tells me to do.' Amy Sedaris
'Jolie Kerr is unique among great, funny writers in that she isn't a repulsive slob.'  Drew Magary, author of Someone Could Get Hurt and The Postmortal
'I was a huge filthy pig - and then Jolie happened to me.  I used to live like an animal in cage; I was completely helpless and hapless when it came to pretending to be human.  Now I can actually have people in my home, instead of just insects and terrible smells!  Jolie Kerr is the painless adult supervision I always needed but was afraid to ask for.'  Choire Sicha, author of Very recent History
