    I do a tidy before we leave, but nothing huge . Strip the beds, pile the towels that we've used, wash dishes we've used & wipe down any sticky hand prints. I wouldn't like to clean after someone has trashed the place, so why should I make it hard for the cleaners?

    My inlaws have a time share so when we visit we vacuum, wipe surfaces down, strip beds and leave in neat pile, empty the bins

    I tidy. rubbish in bin. Laundry in a pile. Straighten up. Mainly because if the place is tidy I can see if I've left anything behind.

    i think it depends where you stay too... apartments normally have one of those books which outlines what they expect you to do. I think the last one I stayed in they asked for dishes to put pu tin dishwasher and turned on when you leave.

    When I stay at nice hotels though I am not going to wash dishes or strip the beds or even make the beds.

    I have never ever vaccumed though - I don't even think anywhere i have stayed has a vaccum???

    I put rubbish in the bin, dirty dishes in a pile and leave everything else. I don't pay 200 bucks a night to clean.

    At the Gold Coast it was awesome to leave everything as is during the day (have the aircon on allll day) and turn up to a place that was sparkling clean. It is great to get away and not have domestic chores to do

    Yes. I strip off the beds, make sure the rubbish is taken out, make sure the dishes are all put back where they came from in the same state we found them in, wipe over the benches, wipe over the interior of the fridge if need, clean the floors and put the towels in the wash, make sure the bathroom and toilet are generally cleaned, then check it all over again just before we leave.

    yeah i would not do it in a hotel so much.
    but this was a holiday apartment only $395 a night so not posh or anything.

    it had a kitchen, dishwasher, mop and vacuum so i thought i should makeit look semi ok!!
