Poll time!
I’m getting cleaning help 1 day a week. She only has Mon, Tues, Wed.
Which day would you choose, and why?

I really like Thursday because it's close enough to Shabbos to maintain until then, but it's not Friday where if they don't show up I feel more screwed. Seeing that it's not an option, I may choose Wednesday if I feel I can maintain until Shabbos. Otherwise any day is equal to me, as it's not Shabbos prep, it's weekly floor washings.

I could not keep the house clean from Wednesday until Shabbos, so I switched to Monday. At least I was able to start the week off right.

I would choose Monday, to get the week started off clean. Wednesday-Shabbos would be too long for me to make it worth it.

I once had a cleaning lady who could only come on Tuesdays. Interestingly, I actually enjoyed it!
I cleaned up after shabbos and before shabbos but she gave it that mid week deep clean so hiuse really never got out of control and gave it that balabatish look even mid week For a few days when it wasn’t undone By Shabbos busyness

Not sure I’d choose it if I had options but being that that was the only option it ended up working out great

If these were the options I’d say Monday too. Starts off the week on the right track

Thanks guys! I confirmed Wednesday.
I’m very clean and neat and I’m always sweeping, dusting, washing dishes and laundry. But I absolutely hate it, plus my husband is allergic to dust mites, so the weekly deep clean is just way too exhausting. Aaaannnnd, I work and I have kids to take care of!
My kitchen gets the messiest on Thursday and Friday, but Wednesday will have to do. At least I’ll only have the kitchen to do and not the dusting and the linen and the bathrooms and floors everywhere else.

Monday!
Wednesday is not here or there- she’s not cleaning up from shabbos and she’s not cleaning up for shabbos.

For everyone saying Monday- the reason I decided against it is because my house is perfectly clean and neat by Monday. I don’t wait 2 days to clean up from Shabbos. If I wanted a lady to clean up from Shabbos, I’d find someone who can come motzei Shabbos, if not Shabbos afternoon.
I went wi to Wednesday instead. Not the greatest day of the week, but still better than Monday and Tuesday for me. Hopefully the mess will be manageable on Thursday and Friday!

I like Monday because I work and it sets my week off to the right start.

Mine comes Tuesdays and I love it. My house gets wrecked on weekends from kids being home so cleaning help on Fridays alone would be a waste bec I wouldn’t be able to enjoy it. Tuesdays allows me to enjoy the rest of the week with a relatively clean home. My ideal choice would be Sundays.

OP I sound just like you and I have Wednesdays and love it. Its still clean enough Friday that I only need to spend a little time cleaning up before Shabbos. And I clean up spotlessly motzei shabbos/ Sunday so Monday would be a waste. Middle of the week works great for me.
