Did you cancel your cleaning help?
« on: March 22, 2020, 11:31:10 PM »
I understand many women need cleaning help in order to stay sane, especially these days.
However, if we are going to practice social distancing, itís not logical to have cleaning help going house to house spreading germs. (If you have a live-in, you can keep her :) )
From what I hear, most of my neighborhood didnít cancel their cleaning help.

Did you?

Did you?
Yes, mostly because she's older and I think it's too dangerous for her to come to my house.

Although
itís not logical to have cleaning help going house to house spreading germs.
was definitely a concern as well.

Cancelled my carpet cleaner from CH but offered to pay him for the service as if he came and he can clean our carpet at a later date.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

PLEASE STOP!  How can anyone even think of playing with fire by letting in an outside person?? 

Here you are staying at home to protect yourselves and your loved ones, washing hands a million times a day, standing an annoying 6 feet away from everyone...and then...
1.  You let in someone who has been to countless other homes? 
2.  She has family and lives with others. 
3.  How many people has her husband been around at his work? 
4.  How many kids do her children play with? 
You have had her for so many years and know her so well, but WHY sacrifice your family? 

Pesach will be different this year.  It is up to US to alleviate the pressure and tell our families that this year is going to be different.  It is our job to protect our families.  We need to be understanding, have rachamim on the wives, and accept (without comment) the level of orderliness in the home.  Since everyone is home anyway, maybe we can actually help, too! 
CHOMETZ FREE, NOT SPOTLESS.

If this post helped you keep out cleaning help, please give me feedback with a 'like'.

We canceled ours for 1 week while our kids were in quarantine. She came friday we gave her gloves and she had her own mask. I will continue to use her so long as we think its safe. I know we're not the only house she cleans, but this is her only income.

If you're worried about her getting through these difficult times, you can pay her for a couple weeks even if you don't have her come.
