    I have a key but just do 1 place atm. They are family members so its different. If they are home they just move to another room or outdoor table while I do it so they aren't in the way.

    They were going to look for a cleaner and would have given out a key but said they would pay me if I wanted to do it. Its win win.

    Yeah I know! We have had her for over 3 years now. Recommended to us by a friend who has her everyday for an hour.

    We used to have her for 6 hours a week when DD was a baby, I think that's why she charged so little but everytime we have tried to up her pay she gets offended, so we just pay her when she is sick or wants time off too.

    Sorry I'm in tas. I'd post and ad on gumtree or similar. Word of mouth really is the best, as you know your getting someone you can trust to leave alone in your house. I've had a friend who has has a woeful time finding someone who doesn't slack off (mine wont take on anyone else).

    I have a great lady that comes every Friday. Nothing better than a clean house for the weekend :-)

    Anyone know a cleaner in Brisbane worth using?
    PM me flipflop, I know a great one :-) I get her in every week.

    Is that why people clean even when a cleaner is there? Not trying to come across as rude or anything, just always wondered

    Its not lazy to sit there and watch TV or read or whatever. It doesn't bother me. You are paying her so you don't have to do it.

    We have just hired a cleaner for 2 hours a fortnight, $50. Last time was her first visit, she cleaned the bathroom and toilet, did the dishes, scrubbed the kitchen, and changed our bedsheets in that time. She said the first visit is a bit slower than others. I'll get her to mop and vacuum tomorrow also.
