If you don't want her washing your eating bows, have them put away before she arrives. Pouring water down the kitchen drain does not bother me either. But if it is bothering you, then communicate that with her. Signs & demonstration should work, to show your preferred methods. And yes, use some disinfectant after she has been, or refuse the service completely.

Yes... Quit complaining and DO something... Including doing your own cleaning. You are very passive for someone who cares so much.

ericjustin2, I suspect if the cleaning person made the changes you wanted that you'd find something else to complain about their work. Your cleaning obsession is not healthy. I would add that she is not a maid but rather a cleaning person.

I used to clean; 20 years ago, it's how I met my husband. The title saying maid is what made me read the thread. I agree, cleaning person, not a maid; but I suspect English isn't the OP's 1st language. Possible they still call cleaning ladies maid where the OP is.

Google translate to her. Please do not clean my apartment. I am very particular and prefer to do this myself. I am a germaphobe and don't want anyone touching my stuff. I sure she will not care as it is one less place she has to work about. End of problem. IF she is afraid of getting in trouble tell her you will speak to management.

Sounds like you are getting what you paid for.

If you want it done right, pay for it. Also, you have a studio apartment, it should not be that expensive.

The firm we contract to sends out 8-10 cleaners to our house and it's done in an hour or so. I pay the bills, so they are receptive to my wishes.

If this is something included in your rent or lease, tell your management company you no longer wish to receive these services.

This and sponges? Sponges for a germaphobe?

I have many years of experience in sterile techniques from working in laboratories. Pouring cleaning water in the sink is not bad. The water is rinsed down to the waste pipes. The sink is cleaned once more before leaving. Perfectly fine.

As for your food bowl. The cleaner probably thinks it is decorative or rarely used. Otherwise you would keep it in a cleaner place like a cupboard or a drawer. She is simply dusting it like she would a vase or decorative platter

I would store the bowl in a cupboard. I would ignore the water going down the sink as long as she rinses the sink properly afterwards. You will still be as free of germs as otherwise

Though I am accustom of seeing cleaning people use the toilet for dumping water what you gal does certainly would not bother me one bit. As has been said, don't want her to wash something put it out of sight. For me, I just always leave when our house clearer is here, that was I don' t have to plan judge and jury and I love the idea of having a clean house, regardless of where she throws the water.
