Scrubbing the shower, bathroom and kitchen along with dusting and mopping the floor takes hours and while I can physically do the job, my time is becoming more precious to me. I would much rather exercise while hiking the streets of Chiang Mai and enjoy my workout in the pool under a beautiful blue sky!
The condo building has women that clean units for moving in or out and also for hire as often as you like so I finally let go of the “Pinkies Up” notion that hiring a cleaning woman would make me appear a snob and made an appointment.
Three women showed up and spent the next hour:
Dust mop hard wood floor
Wipe outside of kitchen cupboards and counters
Wipe outside of refrigerator
Sweep and mop the terrace
Wipe and dust all open shelves, chairs, end tables and coffee table
Clean bathroom, shower, sink, floor, toilet and mirror.
Change sheets on bed
Remove cover on two standing fans to clean blades and the front and back wire cage
All this while smiling, singing, laughing and enjoying their time in my home.
Inside 200 Baht or $6.24
