Boys are all the same, regardless of country.

As many of you know I take care of some international students.  Currently I just have boys and they are all from Saudi Arabia.

I received a call from a new client asking me to clean his apartment.  He needs it to be clean as he is going home to get married. He does not want his new wife to see a dirty apartment.

I had to take pictures as you all probably think I jest about the mess.  These pictures were taken AFTER they picked up.

I must thank my husband for helping me pick up and haul out copious amounts of garbage bags.  A one bedroom, one bath apartment took us 10 hours to clean.


After 10 hours and with the help of Bear, here is the result.

 
Now do you see why I don't go to the gym?

    2. I should have taken pics of one apartment. They had to replace the toilet seat. Enough said.

  2. I had female flatmates like that back in New Zealand. We were always clearing up after them.

  3. Like dbs said. Were the 'before' pics a scene from the next "Hoarders"? You guys did a spectacular job cleaning it up.

  4. That is insane. I feel sorry for his new wife. It is a shame that you can't send her those pictures as a warning!

  7. I'm currently unpacking a whole house after moving and my place does not look that messy. Too bad you can't send those pictures to his mother and his bride.

  8. Holy Crap!!! It looks like a very pleasant little space when it's clean. I don't know how anyone can let a place get that bad... and then not be bothered by it. What did you do with the body (wrapped in blanket in photo #2)?

    1. The body was not a problem. Everything gets recycled here in Corvallis ;-)

  12. I thought my sons kept dirty apartments until I saw these pictures. Sure, they're dirty, but they shouldn't be condemned, like this apartment. You, madame, are a miracle worker! I would have just set the place on fire.

  13. My apartments have been messy in the past - or at least I thought they were messy. Now that I see this...my apartments were downright SPARKLING.
