Hoboken411 reader Willow seems to have had enough of “cleaning services,” and is looking for a reliable independent cleaning person. With that being said…

What is better?

Can you recommend a good cleaning person?

“Hi Hoboken411,

I am looking for a good, reliable, trust worthy individual to clean my apartment on a weekly basis. Can you ask your readers for a recommendation. I don’t want to use one of the services or group cleaners that seem to be popular in my building. Thank you.

Willow”

OK Tramp, born and raised in the USA but you’re still gay, not that I, of course, love you any less. Remember those teenage years? Not to get off topic – RIGHT – but I do have a great house cleaner if the original poster is interested. She, yes “she” (straight, married with children, as if that makes a difference or determines sexuality) is one of the only house cleaners I have not had to clean up after.

whatever happened to cleaning your own sh*t? was i just raised wrong? granted, i hate cleaning as much as anyone, but my mom gave me a beatdown if i didn’t clean up my stuff. why waste $80 when you can just clean as you go along.. or maybe spend an hour on a saturday cleaning? it’s not like hoboken has massive houses or apartments where it would take forever to clean. or is it just the yuppie mentality…if you have extra money lying around, spend it?

I think if I lived alone, I would clean my own apartment. The thing is, I live with two other people. I think that splitting the cleaning duties in the common areas could eventually lead to arguments. It just goes a long way to make sure that there isn’t any unnecessary roommate drama. I mean, we’re paying $80 total between 3 of us to ensure that nobody feels they are doing an unfair amount of work cleaning up after the other two. Seems like money well spent to me.

Face it Tramp. You’re gay! OK, OK. Just kidding. But, well, ummmm,, I don’t know – maybe you should try the other side. You seem to know a lot about it already.

Hey man, He is a nice guy, he does a great job cleaning my apartment, he plays with my dog, and always seems to be in a good mood. His english may not be perfect, but that doesn’t mean he is illegal. Look at Manny Ramirez. He was born in NY, but speaks as if he is from the Dominican because of the neighborhood he grew up in. As for his sexuality, why do I care? Why would someone’s sexuality have an impact on the type of worker he is? Grow up dude, who cares? Did mommy and daddy not hug you enough when you were a kid? It really seems like a few hours a week with a therapist might be able to help you out tramp. what’s with the hatred for anything that isn’t 100% like you? you would have made a great nazi.
