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.

I've cleaned houses before, yes they should flush the toilet, but I dont expect them to rinse out the tub just bcuz something was shaved.... seriously? It takes an extra minute to rinse it out while you're cleaning, I'm not gonna complain its part of the job. Heck even with the toilet, its nasty but hey flush it, pour bleach in it & clean it.

As far as your dd she's 16 I'm sure she's seen & heard enough at school for porn to not be an issue, besides if she works with you, then you should be prepared for her to see things of that nature....

Sooo true I had a cleaning company and made over 100,000. a year and people who made half what I made would talk down to me all the time I finally told one skank nasty woman to take the amount I charged her and multiply that number by 6 and that was just a portion of my earnings in a week so she neededvto flush her toilet once in awhile and asking me to watch her kids while she chatted on the phone better not happen again lol

I have never had a house keeper and most likely never will.....because it would be too much work for me to clean before they come over.   Seriously.   

My Grandparents had housekeepers.   Every other Thursday.  Whenever I stayed with them, I felt the need to clean my bedroom and bath before Thursday.   Wouldn't want them to think I was untidy!!!

But that's different from having to pick up used condoms or looking at fresh upchuck.

Quoting ILive4This:

But if that's what I'm paying them for....

If I pay someone to paint my bedroom, I don't go in there and cut in first.

If I'm paying a landscaper, I don't go rake first.

If I'm paying someone to clean my pool, I don't go skim it.

Quoting nverheyn2011:

People think that just because they have a housekeeper they don't have to clean up the small things. It's riddiculous how inconciderate some people really are in this world...

When I was younger we had the sweetest house keeper she came once a week and she would sometimes bring her grandson. My mom always made sure the house was clean and laundry was done when she came lol only thing she could do was floors and dust and some times dishes or laundry. Really we just liked her alot and she needed money bad so we kept her on once my mom married my step dad

I was a housekeeper many places, and though things are annoying, THAT IS THE JOB LOL.


Quoting sweetykitty:

Isn't that what you get paid to do though. I am a sahm no housekeeper but if I did and they were getting paid they sure would do their job or be fired.

The only thing that would cause me issues would be the condoms. The rest is just a mess. I'd ask for hazard pay to clean up semen.

Flushing your toilet after you shit or puke and rinsing out your tub after you shave your twat is not prep its called being a higenic adult...

Quoting ILive4This:

Flush?  I just shit on the floor.


Smh...I didn't say we don't flush....I just don't get the housekeeper being put out by having to clean.   Doesn't seem right to have to do prep work when you're bringing in a worker....hence, my comparisons.


Quoting NutHouseMomma:

So you don't flush? Gross.
