I'm thinking of getting a cleaner, never had one before but just not managing to keep the house clean what with work and the children.

Do you have a cleaner? Are you happy with them? How much do you get them to do? Do you fine yourself cleaning before they get there lol?!

Anything else you want to add?

Yes I have a cleaner. I have 13 month old twins and without my cleaner I would drown in mess etc. I tidy what I can before she comes because I want her to clean rather than tidy. She's amazing though. What she gets done in 2 hours is far more than I could ever do!

used to have one. paid £15 a time for 2 of them to come in and blitz the house. used to keep it tidy in between. had to give them up when i went part time though- can't afford it anymore

I have a cleaner from last wee- started a new job and a colleagues au-pair wanted some cleaning work. Pay her £5 an hour to clean our house and do an hours ironing and she is brilliant.

Refuse to justify this criminal bit of self-indulgent sloth!

Trefusis, why aren't you working on your thesis?

yes, she comes once a week for 2 hours, and I pay her 16pounds - which may sound alot, but I'm in central London. Well worth it!

couldn't live without my cleaner. shes excellent, does a far better job of cleaning in a few hours than i do in a whole weekend.
she comes twice a week, changes the beds, and takes my ironing away with her and brings it back on the next visit.
i pay £8 per hour and if i could afford it i would pay more just not to lose her.
i don't clean before she gets here but i do have a quick tidy round the night before so that she can get on with the cleaning straight away!

Mmm think I'll definately consider it then - how do you find a cleaner? Is it mainly word of mouth? Or do you advertise?

I'm sinking into a disgusting mess I think - I definately need help!

Yes and will never not have one!
2 hours a week for 15 quid.

I keep the house tidy all the time, and clean the kitchen as I go, she does the rest.

God bless her.

I love coming home on a Monday after she's been.

Good for you, trefusis. Am actually envious as the most taxing thing my brain is required to do these days is post on MN...
