I'm looking for house cleaners in the North Seattle area for a one-time very
thorough cleaning of a house that hasn't been cleaned in years, before new people move in. The job is too big for just one person. Any recommendations? [more inside]

Yesterday at work our cleaners (a married couple) mentioned to me that they were the only cleaners on our site who hadn't received a tip for Christmas. I was really taken by surprise as I'd never even thought of tipping work cleaners but felt really guilty because if this was the done thing then they didn't deserve to be left out. I checked with someone else and found it was true, they were indeed the only ones not to receive a tip from the people they cleaned for (i.e. the office workers). [more inside]

Are there any speakers (well, readers, technically) of Japanese who would be so kind as to translate the instructions on my water-bottle cleaning solution? I know it's basically "add water" but I'm look for specifics. Links to photos inside. [more inside]

I've come to realize that I am not paying as much attention to detail as I should when I drop off shirts at my dry cleaners. It seems like I end up losing 3 or 4 shirts a year to the ebb and flow of having my shirts laundered. Is this truly because of my lack of attention or do others have the same problem? How common it is for shirts to be lost at the dry cleaners? Beyond a greater attention to the checkin and checkout of shirts, does anybody have any advice on stemming the tide of lost shirts?

This is so corny. Years and years ago we stopped ironing. After a while I decided that my shirts should look a little less wrinkled and started taking them to the cleaners at a price that is now 2 bucks per shirt. I am getting tired of going to drop off and pick-up and pay for these shirts. A friend at work suggested a steamer. They say it works much better and much quicker than an iron. I can't go back to ironing....ever. I am looking for a solution. Do steamers work faster and more efficiently than irons? Is there another less time consuming solution? Should I wear wrinkled shirts?

Can anyone recommend a good maid/house-cleaning service in San Francisco
? I've looked online but I would rather go to one from a reference, just to make sure no one walks off with my stereo. How much should I expect to pay for a one-time cleaning of a 1-bedroom apartment? Is recurring service better, or do you just call when you don't have time to clean up yourself? How does security generally work if I'm not at home?
