Toaster oven cleaning...

krissie55April 19, 2011

My house cleaner is upset because I asked her to not use a feather duster (same one used to dust furniture) to brush crumbs out of the toaster oven. She brushes crumbs onto the floor.

Am I expecting too much, are my standards too high, am I being too critical, should I turn a blind eye to the way things are done? Am I being too picky?

I shudder at the thought of household germs being introduced inside the toaster oven where food will be. Using a dry rag (used elsewhere) to wipe out toaster oven after using the feather duster does not calm my fears about germs.

Your opinions please.

You're right.
Where oh where has that feather duster been?
Do you have pets? Is it her duster, being used throughout someone else's home?

No, I do not have pets, but, other clients do. The feather duster is the house cleaner's and used in other homes.

Another reason why I wouldn't have a professional cleaner in my house. Nobody cleans up to my standards. HA HA.

I think I would save the toaster oven cleaning for myself.
