I used to think it was silly to have a cleaning lady b/c like others said, why pay when you can do it yourself. But wow I love my cleaning lady! My grandma gifted her to me when I had my baby and I don’t know how I’d live without her now!

I have a 3 bedroom, 2 bath. My first cleaning lady charged $60. I just switched (we had issues with her) and now we’re using my mom’s cleaning lady who she’s had since my older sister was born, so she’s charging $50 since we’re so close to them.

Don’t want to threadjack but I have a question.

For you ladies that have cleaning ladies, are you home when they come or are you at work? Ive thought about getting one but I’m not sure how comfortable I am having someone in the house when we arent home. On the other hand, I cant imagine being in the house while someone else is cleaning.

@Bostongrl25:She comes while we are at work. Our cleaning lady even has a key to our house because I was nervous that I would forget to leave one and she would come all the way over and be locked out.

She also cleans for 2 of my cousins, my brother, my brother’s ILs, and my neighbor. I figure if she does something to piss one of us off, she will be loosing out on a TON of business, so I trust her.

So anyone home while their cleaning person is there? Seems like most people do it while they are at work. My DH and I are thinking of hiring someone, as he refuses to help out, and I am sick of doing 99% of the work.

Our issue is that we have two dogs, so someone coming by when we aren’t home isn’t the best. One dog is contained in the middle of the house by baby gates and the other is in a crate. I’d rather be home when they are cleaning, as the ‘contained’ dog will attack the vacuum, and other things that make loud noises…
