Overcoming the guilt of hiring a house cleaner is liberating. But is it possible? Think of it as empowering your life and helping others instead!
Many people, especially those raised by parents who cleaned constantly, may feel guilty for not doing it all themselves. However, technology and societal changes have made it more common to outsource certain tasks, such as cleaning, which is not something to feel guilty about. It is also important to be an equal-opportunity employer, regardless of the demographic of the cleaner being hired. Instead of feeling guilty for hiring a cleaner, look at it as a way to improve your life and provide someone else with a job and financial stability.
Today’s #AskaHouseCleaner sponsor is #SavvyCleaner training and certification for house cleaners and maids. ( And your host today is #AngelaBrown (
