Our cleaner was fantastic! Did all the bathrooms and floors and tidied up every fortnight. We paid $50 for 2 hours. It meant we had weekends free to spend time together. Money is a bit tight so we aren't currently using one and it sucks
Can't recommend ours because I'm in WA

Our cleaner is a godsend. She does everything each fortnight. It's the best money I spend. I found it has reduced DH and I arguing too as there is little to no bickering about housework

Def worth it. I had one but she went back overseas to go home to her children who needed her. I used to get her 2hrs one week, 3 the next and paid her $20 an hour. I advertised on gumtree.
DS actually recieved a post card from here yesterday. Was lovely.

I always SPOFFORTH (vb. from the Dictionary of Liff - meaning: To tidy up a room before the cleaning lady arrives).

It makes me tidy the whole house when I know she is coming so she can do the jobs I don't want to do.....windows, folding washing, skirting boards etc. mine came today and I'm halfway home from a whole day in the city so it will be lovely to go home to.

I clean my sister's house for 2 hours a week, but have always had a cleaner when I was working full time. It's easy to get heaps done when you don't have the distractions of being in your own house.
Most important to pick up and tidy up as much as you can, it's such a timewaster putting dishes in the dishwasher just to wipe the bench. We had a cleaner as kids - it was drilled into us that she was a cleaning lady, not a tidying lady. The night before we had to pick up and put away.
And not that my sister leaves mess like this - but if you can make sure that the toilet bowl is free from 'stains' and even put the cleaner around the inside of the bowl that morning before you leave it makes it a bit nicer.
