I think it’s fair to say that in most households, it is the female counterpart who tends to do most of the unpaid labour (and by this, I mean cooking, cleaning, laundry, driving the kids around…). That’s not to say this is the case in all households, or to say men don’t do anything, it is just a sweeping generalisation that I make based on the women I have come across in my time. Now more than ever, women are returning to work post children leaving them with very limited time to spend on the chores let alone on themselves. So why does it seem so ‘taboo’ to admit that you’re more GSI (get someone in) than DIY?
If there’s one thing mothers hate, it’s a messy house. But if there’s one thing most mothers also hate, it’s cleaning the house! And there is no shame in this. Hiring a housekeeper doesn’t mean you’re lazy or messy, it just means you want some added support to enable you to use your free time to do the things you love. And that’s okay! Whether it’s that quiet glass of wine we spoke about in the last blog or even just an early night, you need time for you to rest and recharge. What’s more, you need time to spend with the people you love the most (even if they are the ones making your home messy).
There need be no embarrassment in admitting you have, or want, a housekeeper. Not only does it save you time, it will allow for a more hygienic living space, as it is likely a housekeeper will do a far deeper and more thorough clean. They remember all the places you forget: door frames, tops of cupboards, skirting boards… and it will also reduce your cleaning bill! They’ll bring their own, eco-friendly equipment, taking away your need to buy and store domestic cleaning products.
So that’s where The Beautiful Method comes in; professional, domestic housekeepers serving many of your households’ requirements. It’s okay to need the help (just like it’s okay to really hatecleaning!) Get in touch today to see how we can help you – and if you really insist on keeping it a secret, we won’t tell if you don’t.
