What's your least favorite cleaning chore? :)

And how much would you pay to have someone else do it? I'm asking how much you WOULD pay, not how much you can afford lol. :) Just doing a little market research for my cleaning business :) Thanks in advance for your help!!

  • You can see rates for housekeeping at www.care.com. Use the pulldown to see the categories. You can see hourly rates. I hate dusting the most. Before we moved we had a lady come every two weeks to dust and she charged $20/hr (in the northeast).

  • Cleaning the Cat Box - gag! How much.... Well it's a daily chore that needs to be done and ''Usually'' is done by my oldest along with her other chores, but if she misses it then I have to do it or suffer the Rank Smell... Does she still get paid? No! What is this chore worth? 1.50...
