Description

Louise Rafkin, an extraordinary author, never imagined she'd end up cleaning refrigerators or have a preference for a particular brand of paper towels. But what started out as a quick way to earn a living became a curious preoccupation with all things clean... and messy!Witty and revealing, Other People's Dirt is a thoroughly irreverent look at the untidy business of life!

    Louise Rafkin is well educated yet decided to work as a house cleaner for a number of years. The book is snarky and sarcastic and informative, but I had just a few problems with it. She refuses to pick up other people's underwear, or uses a utensil to do so. Used tissues or condoms I can understand, but underwear? But she balances that with what she has to say about those who can afford to pay others to do their scut work and those who do that work.

    Rafkin does more than simply relate the dirt she learns about others in her job as their housekeeper. This book is actually an interesting series of essays that center around cleaning in its various forms. Recommended.
  • (3/5)
    A pleasant light read. The perfect thing in between the reading of 2 heavier reads.
  • (4/5)
    I really enjoyed this book. It's about one women's journey of self discovery through cleaning work and it also gives a very interesting perspective on the cleaning profession through an experienced cleaners' eyes.
    This is not a cleaning tips and tricks book, it's a book about cleaning experiences.
  • (4/5)
    An insider look at the people who work as cleaners and cleaning as a way to serve for some.
  • (4/5)
    An interesting life story and an amount of pride in the author's labor that all should possess. It's a relatively short work read by the author, which is something I always enjoy.
  • (3/5)
    An interesting look into the mindset of somebody who actually likes to clean.
  • (2/5)
    Awful. I thought this would be fun read about a housekeeper's funny anecdotes but it was more akin with rubbing sandpaper on your face. Painfully dry.
