Take the out of cleaning!

If you’re anything like me, you’re not that into cleaning the house. I mean I’m not totally useless, but I’m also not very good at cleaning and don’t enjoy it that much. Being 29 weeks pregnant too means that it’s an increasing struggle.

The cleaners are reviewed and rated and even have a profile on the website, so you know what you’re getting into.
