Cleaner for one-off clean... but what to get her to do?!

I've never had a cleaner before. But, I'm really busy with work and studying at the moment, and we have our landlady visiting next week, so I've arranged for a cleaner to come over on Saturday morning for 2-3 hours. Problem is, how the hell do I decide what to get her to do?! We live in a medium-sized 2 bedroom flat. shall I get her to do a once over everything, or get her to do the more grimy jobs like cleaning the oven????

Are there things cleaners don't normally do?

Don't ask her to do the oven.. get some ovenpride to do that. Not at all labour intensive, just needs to work overnight.

Oh I'd love this.

My house is pretty clean but I would love someone to come and do the stuff I rarely get a chance to do properly, such as cleaning the skirting boards, woodwork, doors, internal window frames, tops of cupboards/units etc.

2-3 hours isn't that long for a really good clean so I think you'll need to prioritise - what needs most attention and what do you forget/not get the chance to do?

I do agree with the timing actually. In 2-3 hours you won't get a deep clean, just a surface one (also depends how tidy you are). You'd need 4-5 hours for a deeper clean.
