Time spent on Cleaning

How long does it take you to clean your house? I can do it in a fairly short space of time but I know others take longer.
Done my kitchen tonight in about 10 minutes.

It depends on the room and the time of year. In summer the whole house is vacuumed and dusted in 20 minutes. In winter, when there isn't as much to do outdoors, I could take 30 minutes just doing the sitting room - vacuum, dust, wax, clean suite, etc. In winter the bathroom might take twenty minutes every couple of weeks doing a deep clean of shower unit, tiles and so on. 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.

When I say 10 minutes in the kitchen that was fairly basic. Spray the counters, Cif in the sink and then clean the hob.

If anyone wants to hire me as a cleaner I can do evenings or weekends. I don't use any shop bought sprays or wipes with potentially harmful and dangerous chemicals that have who knows what in them. I will lick everything clean.

Do you wash yourself by rolling around in the morning dew? None of that nasty soap.

Very little more than that in common with him but seems like a sound sort.

I'll spray cleaner at dirty spots from time to time. If i have the motivation I'll wipe it a bit.

Same here, selection for the Army Ranger Wing would be easier.

Its the forensic aspect of the cleaning that sucks the soul out of me.
The house is examined as if she is searching for the Holy Grail.
Even the dog doesn't bother his bollix coming in when she's cleaning.
