Not To Be Trusted With Knives

Maid Service Door Hanger by ATIS547.

Anyone who has ever been to my place can attest to the fact that cleaning is not my forte.  Nor are tidying, straightening up, housework or chores.

So, my question is: does anyone know of a good cleaning service (or independent cleaner) who will clean my place for a reasonable price?

I really want someone who will give my kitchen and bathroom a good scrub.  I’m not so bad with vacuuming, but scrubbing the shower, sinks and floors are anathema to me.  I need someone who will work in the Dunbar area and who has a reasonably flexible schedule to come to my place when it works for me (as I need to be there while they are there). Someone who uses enviro-friendly cleaning supplies would be a plus!  Any recommendations?

Also, what’s the going rate for that kind of thing?

Adding bonus: While I was checking the thesaurus at for synonyms for “tidying,” I got this response:

tidying equals dying by you.

Well, when I say “tidying” I do mean a fate worse than death… You know me too well,!
