My housekeeper does laundry and puts things away, although we don’t always know where they’ve gone…
She spends anywhere from 5-8 hours once a week, depending; she takes it on herself to do “sometimes” stuff, like cleaning out the fridge or doing windows, or will do that when asked. She does do whatever dishes are dirty, although she does break things, so I make sure the stuff we care about is done by us. We pay her a little extra to iron, which is almost every week.
I also pay her when she’s sick, give her a Christmas bonus and the week off, pay her when she has a family emergency and has to go home, help her with things like car insurance and her daughter with health insurance…so I think we get service over the odds.
Also I give her a small raise roughly every year (she’s been with us for going on ten years).
