    Default 2-3hr spring clean - how much?

    How much would you pay for 2 people to do a spring clean of your double story townhouse? Took approx 2-3hrs.

    I had lovely ladies do a spring clean at my house, as bub is due next week and I basically couldn't be stuffed : They refused to give me a price and left before I got home, leaving me a bunch of flowers too.

    They have been ironing exDH work shirts for 4yrs now and are so nice. They always give DS1 bday/Xmas presents, so essentially make nothing from the work they have done for us!

    When I contacted them for the spring clean, they were so happy to hear from
    me and are just shocked/devastated that DH could leave while I was pregnant. They have even offered to babysit for free, just lovely ladies.

    So I want to leave a card with cash in their letterbox today (so they can't refuse) and wondered what's an acceptable amount? I'm thinking $100-150 but Mum says this is too much.

    Oh they sound lovely!

    I think $100 is fair. My cleaner charges $25 an hour.
