No stranger to the cleaning business, Linda Cobb is the former owner of one of the largest cleaning companies in Michigan. Not only is she an authority on carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning and wall and window washing, but she also has faced all types of cleaning challenges. In fact, her firm specialized in some of the most difficult cleaning tasks in the industry: disaster restoration, fire damage and smoke and water damage.
As The Queen Of Clean®, Linda has been a featured guest on more than 70 local and national talk radio shows across the country including the #1 rated Beth & Bill in the Morning on 99.9 KEZ in Phoenix, AZ. She has been widely recognized as the go-to cleaning expert for such television shows such as Oprah Winfrey's popular TV talk show Oprah, Dr. Phil, The View, The Today Show, and Live with Regis & Kelly. In addition, she's a regular on KTVK-TV's top-rated morning show Good MorningArizona in Phoenix, and has done her own series for the DIY Nework, Talking Dirty With the Queen of Clean®.
Linda is also a top-notch speaker, wowing audiences across the country with her knowledge and unusual cleaning methods, such as Tang™ in the toilet and Massengil™ on the dog! Her natural cleaning methods are easy and even fun, something that never fails to astound her audiences.
Whether on television or radio or as a guest speaker, Linda's abundance of personality shines through as she shares her cleaning expertise and sense of humor while answering viewer and listener questions. There's a standing challenge with audiences to stump the Queen, but so far, nobody has been able to do it.
On the air, in print and on the Web, Linda does it all, but the crown jewel of her achievements is her best-selling book Talking Dirty With The Queen Of Clean®. It was already popular in Arizona when Simon & Schuster's Pocket Books picked it up. Pocket Books published and released Talking Dirty in September 2000 and it has been flying off shelves ever since! The sequel, Talking Dirty Laundry with the Queen of Clean®, came out in spring 2001, followed up by A Queen for All Seasons: A Year of Tips, Tricks and Picks for a Cleaner House and a More Organized Life® and the compilation hardback title How the Queen Cleans Everything®
Look for the Queen of Clean® Seal of Approval® on products she personally believes exemplify the best in their categories. She does not rely on product PR. Linda, herself, tests hundreds of products in every way imaginable and some that aren't! She does the work so you don't have to. In another effort to make your life clean and easy, Linda has put together a list of Palace Picks® to help you make the very best choices in cleaning products.
The Queen lives in Phoenix, AZ with her husband, Duane, and Palace Pussycats Zoey Elizabeth and Finn.
So many people have asked me where I take the Palace Pussycats for veterinary care. Zoey and Finn go to Dr. Sarah Derksen at Desert View Animal Hospital.
Since my furry kids can't speak for themselves I wanted someone with more than a degree. I wanted a doctor who would take the time to search for answers if the diagnosis was difficult. Someone who wouldn't just send us home with pills, but would look to permanently solve, correct or make the problem something we could all live with. I wanted someone with a great bedside manner who would spend some time petting, hugging and getting to know our cats before the exam began. That is who Dr. Derksen is. Since she is mom to cats and a dog she is at ease with both of them.
Zoey Elizabeth is our tabby/tort. She will be 12 years old in July 2013. She is an amazing girl that I adopted from the Arizona Humane Society. She has gone to Dr. Derksen for basically her entire life. One of her challenges was frequent bladder infections and pain. Dr. Sarah, as we call her, worked to find the right diet and combination of lifestyle changes so that Zoey has not had any repeat occurrences in at least 10 years. Zoey goes for her wellness check every year to be sure there are no issues popping up as she ages.
Finnigan is our Ocicat. He is the only cat I have ever actually bought from a breeder. We saw the Ocicats at a cat show and were totally in love and hooked. Finnie came to live with us in January 2010. To say that he has had his challenges and used up about 4 of his lives would be an understatement! Dr. Sarah has taken care of him pretty much since birth.
For all of these years we have trusted Dr. Derksen to be there for us to take care of those we love so much, and to grieve with us when we had to let one of sweet babies, See Ay Tee, go to Rainbow Bridge. She did so sending our See Ay Tee on her way with love, dignity and without pain.
If you live in Arizona and want the best possible care available for your pets, call and make an appointment with Dr. Sarah Derksen at Desert View Animal Hospital.
