She'd need to be carrying her broom in an orifice for over a tenner

well it depends where you live, doesn't it? I paid mine £12 hr, here in the leafy Cotswolds. Now don't- do it myself as she's left and can't be bothered to advertise again etc.

Where do you live, Babybarrister? I'll come and clean for you for 310 an hour....

£7 - £10 seems to be the rate around here (Somerset).

That's mad, it's way above the going rate here ( brighton). Go to gumtree.

Are you sure pay is the sole reason she's turned the job down? Maybe something else about it didn't suit her.

my very old aunt was paying her rubbish cleaner £17 per hour (in london) when i met the cleaner to query the amount she said she can charge what she likes - i told her not to come back, i do a better job for nothing.

kittywise, I'm in Brighton and the rate is around £8-£10 per hour. Lucky you if you've found someone cheaper. I don't know how anyone can afford to pay rent/mortgage here on less

Maybe she didn´t like you?

My friend has a couple of cleaning jobs & she charges £6 per hr,i think i need to tell her to put her prices up.

Is your house really messy? wink

LissyGlitter Fri 25-Sep-09 08:23:39

Good god, I used to work in an old peoples home and occasionally did shifts cleaning what I would think would be much worse mess than in a house, and I was on minimum wage!

I suppose you could add a bit for having to travel there and maybe provide your own equipment, but still...

Good on you for offering some kind of living wage though!

are you extra mucky?

southeastastra Fri 25-Sep-09 08:25:50

d'oh scummy got there first grin

kittywise Fri 25-Sep-09 08:34:28

donkeyderby, I advertise on Gumtree when I need a new cleaner. If people are charging more than i can afford I tell them so! You get loads of response for cleaning work on gumtree, it's acesmile
