We just got back from a trip to Arizona where we were for 5 days. We had some friends come stay at our house to feed our animals and generally keep an eye on the place. They were happy to house-sit as they currently live in a studio with their three young kids. The wife does house cleaning and we asked her if she could clean our place while we were gone. She did an awesome job! Cleaned all the blinds and windowsills, dusted everywhere, moved furniture to clean underneath and behind things. Cleaned both bathrooms (my husbands bathroom was pretty gross as I leave it up to him to keep it clean), washed and folded all the laundry that was waiting in laundry baskets (two or three loads), generally just did a very nice job. So... what should we pay her? Our house is 1100 square ft, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a garage that we converted into a playroom (though that didn't require cleaning). I want to make certain we pay her enough!
