Do you have a cleaning lady?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I have a housekeeper that comes but only on Wednesdays. I always clean before she gets there and my husband thinks I'm nuts. Is that normal? I feel like if it's mostly clean when she gets there she will have more time to do deep cleaning.

 Why yes I have a cleaning lady! She isn't very punctual though.

for what? i didn't ask her to be a cleaning lady, she chose this life.

Oh geez! Can't the lady get one day a week off?

I have one for my 3 bedroom house that comes 6 days a week. She has church on Sundays. Her religion ruins my scheduling ugh.

She never does my bedroom. That's the only room I wouldn't want her in. Other than that i am happy she's there. I usually even help her haha


Quoting Snapdragon88:

No way, man. I would feel so weird with someone else cleaning my house. Cleaning is oddly personal to me, lol.

Yes, she does all the floors. I hate floors, I make sure everything is picked up off the floor, but she does the base boards, counters and cabinet fronts.

See that's the stuff I hate doing too!  I will start working soon, maybe I can pay for someone to come over and do that kind of stuff :)

Lol. I don't mind cleaning myself because my kids are old enough to clean after theirselves but I just don't want to do things like baseboards and shampooing etc

Unless you've specifically discussed it with her, she probably isn't deep cleaning. She's probably just redoing what you did. I don't clean before mine comes but I do declutter.

That would be me....DH did pay for a cleaning to come in and clean once because, in the span of 2 weeks, I had my wisdom teeth removed and developed a dry socket and then my grandmother died. When we came back from the out of state funeral I felt so overwhelmed by everything he took care of it.

of course now I wish he would just pick up after himself!

I dont have one now, but I hope to one day  (its a goal in life) but I was a cleaning lady once and I agree with you, the cleaner it is when they arrive the cleaner it will be when they leave.  I always asked that clients picked up before I came so I could actually get to the dirt.    I didn't expect them to clean before I got there but if a home was cluttered it was almost impossible to get it really clean
