Are you ever worried you'll just rub the house away?

A tip for those with shower screens: keep a squeegee in the shower and use it just after showering. No need for anything else, keeps the glass spotless.

Kitchen is Jif Cream in the sink and cooker top and Jif or flash spray on counters. Rarely use bleach though in case it marks it.
Jif?
Do you eat a Marathon bar while doing it?

For deep cleans and very tough dirt/grease - Cillit Bang and a sponge scourer is yer man!

Tesco wipes for the light bathroom clean.
What kind of Cif do you use for the bath and sink?

A winter kitchen clean could be half a day if all units are cleaned, fridge and cooker deep cleaned. So very dependent on the time available and other priorities.
Can I tempt you to do a house call in the NW? Seriously, that sounds wonderful. My husband does not have the photoreceptor cells in his eyes to notice dirt. Dreadful affliction Hereditary, apparently.

That's a long way to come just to do a bit of cleaning.

Lemon juice and baking soda. Vinegar to rinse.
