Nice things to do for your housekeeper

I own a cleaning business and these are just a few nice things I would love if they were done

1.   Try to flush the toilets before she comes, especially if someone had a stomach bug.

2.  If you shave a porcupine ( or whatever it was) in the bath tub it would be nice if you rinsed it out.

3.  If you had a wild party it would be nice if you pick up the condoms everywhere.

4.  When moving out from a place it would be nice if you took your porn with you so that when the housekeepers teenage daughter comes with her to help she doesn't see those.

5.  Dont look down on her, or think that she is your personal butler without a life and never think she is uneducated and living on welfare and please dont refer that to that every time you talk to her because sometimes ( like in my case) she makes more than you.

   These are not serious complaints because I know this comes with the job and I love my job but it would be nice if people would do these things lol.

 I dont think some people are reading this all the way through.  I said these were not serious complaints they are mostly just venting and if you want to be nice to your housekeeper than it would be helpful ( though never mandatory) if these things were done.   I love all of my customers and will bend over backwards for them it would just be nice if they were considerate.     Cleaning up semen and being verbally berated because someone thinks I am beneath them are not my job the rest are not things that really bother me it would just be nice if some people were more hygenic.

Quoting LectioDivina:

I'll do everything except the porn...

Legally I don't think Minors are even allowed to come...

She's 16 and works with me, she is allowed to come and she is on my insurance as an employee it would just be nice if there wasnt porn.  I think people are reading this wrong or I wrote it wrong, I clean it all up no problem, I just said it would be nice if they did these things thats all.

Should I put the porn away, yes. If it happens to be out, though, I expect a housekeeper to just put it away. I don't expect the housekeeper to bring her minor child, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Do people really not rinse out the tub or club the toilet? I'm sorry!

My mil is amazing to her housekeepers, never looks down on them, and treats them amazingly well on their birthdays and Christmas. It is a hard job. I wouldn't be able to do it.

You're right about it though... People get a maid to help them keep things clean, not be a pig and have someone clean up after them....

Where is a better place to shave the porcupine? (hehehehe, that totally made me giggle)


I dont know of a better place, it just would have been nice if they had rinsed out the tub not cleaned it just rinsed it.

I used to work for a family.
Lady of the house wouldn't even rinse her own toothbrush after brushing. They never flushed the toilets. And in thier little McMansion she would leave " personal" massagers where ever. In the media room, in the shower ( not so bad ) and once on the side of the pool. I didn't want to touch that stuff but I just put on my gloves and took care of it.
So happy I don't work for them any more.

I was a house cleaner for awhile. I had a family that literally left their child with me. Like they had forgotten her in her crib

I LOVE the ladies that come to clean my house. Granted, I only have them come twice a month but they always do a great job and they take a lot of the work off of my shoulders. In the beginning, I constantly asked for their advice (like how in the world they get my glass shower doors so freakin' clean because we have super hard water) and I used their advice. I never look down on them because #1 to have your own business is something I could never accomplish, and #2 to clean for a living you have a lot more patience and attention to detail than I could ever claim to have.

It was a vacant house that the renters had moved out of, my daughter is an employee of mine she is 16 and is in every way legal to work for me.  I am a business and she has workers comp and I have a payroll person.  Iactually have 2 employees she just helps me on the weekends.
