    I had a house cleaner when I had four teenagers at home, I was working fulltime and the children had sport that took all of Saturday. The rate was $9 per hour, this was some years ago. I had my floors vacuumed and the tiles vac and mop. and the bathrooms and toilets cleaned. She took about 4 hrs one day a week, and I really enjoyed having those jobs done for me. Marie.

    I have a cleaner. We live in a 3 bed townhouse, I work full time, DH works part time and we have a 11 mth old.

    It is a lifesaver. I didn't want to feel like I should be doing cleaning instead of spending time with DS.

    We just do fortnightly cleans and then all we have to do is keep on top of it. It is so nice to come home from work to a newly clean house.

    It costs us $58 a fortnight.

    I'm in the process of looking for one. I have a four bedroom house, 2bathroom and two living. Most of the quotes I have got are $25 an hour, minimum of two hours.

    I'm just deciding on weekly or fortnightly and trying to get my head around the idea of a stranger being in my home when none is there.

    I just started back at full time work, last thing I want to do is clean the house, would prefer to spend as much time as I can with 11 month old daughter.

    I have cleaners. Originally got one when I was working full time and suffering badly with morning sickness throughout my first pregnancy. Now a SAHM of 2 kids. My cleaners are a married couple who clean for 2 hours and charge $50. This is a bargain! They do mopping, vacuuming, clean down the kitchen and deep clean the bathrooms and whatever else needs doing (oven, microwave etc when required). We have a 4 bed, 2 bath house and they come weekly.

    I've had my cleaner for 5 years and she charges $15 an hour and I supply everything. We have a 4 br place and she can get it sparkling including washing in 3 hours. Sometimes I used to come home to a casserole in the slow cooker too!!! Love her. Unfortunately we haven't had her for quiet a few months but are going to start having her again weekly in the next couple of months. Very excited.
    We have tried many time to give her a pay raise but she refuses. We pay her "sick pay" too. Least we can do!!

    We have a cleaner come in once a fortnight and we do tidy ups in between.
    DH works full time and I'm on mat leave with a very needy child that doesn't sleep. I can't do it (unless I was to let her sit and scream the house down), any time I do get I prioritize doing the accounts for my husbands business..... Gotta keep the money coming in.
    The cleaner comes in for 3 hours, cleans a 3 bedroom, 3 storey house for $105.... Money well spent IMO.
