    I went back to full-time at the end of last year and I don't have a cleaner but I am seriously considering it. I find it is just a bit too overwhelming at the moment and things are not getting done as often as they should.
    I'm another one who would have to clean up a bit before my cleaner came in but things like vacuuming, mopping and cleaning bathrooms etc would be all theirs. I would love to come home on Friday to a clean house.

    I tidy so she can clean, I'd rather spend her time here doing things I hate doing.

    We have one. I own and run a dance school (work about 25 hours per week on average) and it certainly takes the pressure of our family. DS is at school now but DD is at home full time. We made a decision that we would pay a cleaner rather than put DD in childcare (and DS before he was at school). She will be at kindy next year so I might cut back to fortnightly with the cleaner or perhaps not have her at all.

    If I was working full time I would definitely have one. No doubt.

    I only stopped working at the start of the year and it was full time.
    DF also works full time and we do the housework together everyday (including when I was working).
    I personally don't find it hard to keep on top of and think for us it would be a waste of money.

    Yes indeed! I had cleaners when I worked full time, and still have them as a (mostly) SAHM.

    I don't enjoy cleaning, so I'd rather pay someone else to do it.

    Nope. DH and I work full time and don't have a cleaner. We have a small house and are neat freaks so never saw the need.
