Cleaning Scary Places

Cleaning Scary Places

In a continuation of my “spooky” and “creepy” October theme, I’d like to tell you about a very scary place I had to clean. It’s a different scary then when I found all the little cat coffins in the Cat Lady’s house (you can read about it here). Don’t get me wrong, most cleaning is…

When Your Appliances Are Haunted

When Your Appliances Are Haunted

I love Halloween! It’s my favorite holiday. I love all the scary movies and the costumes and the spooky decorations. Speaking of, I was out in my yard on October 1st putting up my scary d├ęcor. This includes my skeleton with duster in hand on my porch and a scarecrow vacuuming up all his fallen…

Happy Birthday To Me

Happy Birthday To Me

Last week was my birthday. Unfortunately, with a pandemic in full swing, I didn’t partake in my usual week of birthday festivities which would have included dunking booths, cotton candy machines and me sitting on a homemade throne with my droves of fans lined up to shower gifts upon me. Oh wait, I think that…

Technology has always had the intention of making our lives easier. Just the invention of the washing machine saved the backs, fingers and time of countless women (and men) who used to scrub clothes with a wash tub and board. The invention of the washing machine also led to the invention of the wash tub…

A Day In The Life Of The Cleaning Lady

A Day In The Life Of The Cleaning Lady

I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day! I got a day of relaxation while Mr. Cleaning Lady grilled the obligatory hot dogs and hamburgers. Of course, I had to do the dishes, even though he offered, because inevitably I’ll have to rewash them anyway. Better to pick your battles. There must be some unwritten…

Masks: The Must-Have 2020 Fashion Accessory

Masks: The Must-Have 2020 Fashion Accessory

No mask? That’s so 2019. Since Covid-19 has changed everything about life this year, I’d like to talk about the most prominent and ubiquitous accessory that everyone must have, literally. The ever-present mask. Like humans tend to do, we were not satisfied with the boring and institutional blue or white mask. Creativity and humor took…

My Mechanic and Me

My Mechanic and Me

I have a great relationship with my mechanic, namely because I can’t afford a car that doesn’t brake down once every few months. So when I called him to tell him I needed a few things done, he made me a proposition. No not that kind! You all have been stuck in the house too…

Queen Karen Comes Calling

I got a call from a potential new client the other day. “Hello!?! Is this the Cleaning Lady?” “Yes.” “Oh, thank god! I got your number from [insert old client’s name] and I am desperate for help. My cleaning lady just walked out on me and I’m frantic!” Can you say red flag, and why…

The Cat Lady

The Cat Lady

Many years ago, when I was first starting out, I cleaned a house for a self-proclaimed “Cat Lady”. She rescued homeless cats or saved them from shelters. Which I’m cool with. I love cats. I’ve had a few over the years, and thank gooodness I’m not allergic. Because when I started with her, she had…
