    No don't have a cleaner and don't need or want one. Whether I'm working or a stay at home mum (I've been both) I don't find it difficult to keep the house clean and i have a hubby who is very hands on and helps with everything.

    Wow I'm amazed how many people have cleaners. I work 4 days a week and pretty much cram in all my household chores into the one day I have off so I can try and keep my weekends as free as possible, although that doesn't really happen as I still find I need to do things on the weekend to get through everything.

    No but we'll be getting one when Newbie is born, hopefully forever. I only want them to do the bathroom, ensuite & mopping. I vacuum every other day anyway & do other chores as they need done. The kitchen is done every second day. The bathrooms & mopping though take about 2 hours and TBH, I just hate doing them. I'm a SAHM.

    We had a cleaner when I worked full time. Once a week for 2 hours for $50. She did everything (bathroom, mopping, vacuuming, dusting, kitchen) but we lived in a much smaller house.

    I wouldn't pay more than $25 an hour.

    I would like one! DH and I both do the cleaning but it would be amazing for someone else to help with the dusting, mopping floors, kitchen & bathroom without worrying about it!

    Oh I love having a cleaner! Today I found fresh flowers from my garden in a vase on the kitchen table!

    No! But I am so interested in the answers. I have been considering getting a cleaner. I have been looking on Gumtree but not made any serious enquiries.

    I would think two hours a week could do it!

    This thread has got me motivated to look again ( as well as looking at the housework I need to do before Sat)!!

    Off to look on Gumtree!!

    oh.. I don't mean that in a rude way, like you need to justify it lol, I just mean $205 is SO much money to me for weekly cleaning, I'm hoping that living in a unit with no indoor pets means I am exempt from these $30 an hour cleaners so i can have a hope of hiring one! lol

    When I did cleaning on uni hols, I got $15 an hour, $18 on Sundays. I was thinking more around that price, as it was only a few years ago now.
    Unfortunately it's normal for my area. I used to have a private cleaner, and she only charged $25 an hour. She left when she got pregnant, and I haven't found a reliable individual one since. I don't live in the CBD and they're hard to come by in my area.

    The agencies all charge much the same, but they do a good job including ironing, laundry, etc.

    Don't think my house is too dirty

    Me either. I would love a person to do my washing, that's all I seem to do and so difficult to keep on top off. No sooner have you waited for washing to dry then fold and put away do I turn around and have more

    Hubbie and I both work (full-time) and study (me: law, him: business) and we have a cleaner that comes once a week for approx 2-3 hours and does floors, bathrooms and dusting.

    I have no problem keeping my house 'tidy' and neat etc, laundry, cooking and the rest of the household duties but finding the time to mop or scrub is near impossible at the moment. Once I'm on maternity leave we won't be using the cleaner as I'll have the time.
