    Default Cleaner question

    I'm thinking of hiring a cleaner once a fortnight for 2 hours to do dusting, vacuuming, mopping etc, but NOT toilets and bathroom. That's something I personally prefer to do myself.

    What do you think?
    What other jobs could she do in 2 hours (single story, 3 bed, 2 living areas)?

    Windows and screens, oven, cupboards, walls...you could rotate what she does each f/night so one week she would do the oven and the next f/night the windows

    Windows, architraves/skirting boards/cornices, oven, hang out washing if there's a load in the machine, wash cushion covers, air con vents...

    Personally I think you're nuts doing the bathrooms yourself lol! That's the main reason I have a cleaner!!
