    My family just moved to Dumaguete and we are looking for a part time helper for cleaning and laundry. We live in Dumaguete, and are thinking of a schedule of 8am until 2 or 3pm on Mondays thru Fridays. Thinking maybe to be off from 12-1 and then work from 1-3pm.

    If anyone can recommend someone, we would appreciate it.

    Just message me on here.

    How many people are in your family that this helper will need to be cleaning up after and doing laundry for? Those hours seem a bit long for a part time helper with just those two tasks. You could probably get away with only having a helper come in 2-3 times a week for a couple hours minimum or half days at the maximum. However, I have found that full time helpers tend to be willing to work for less than part-time helpers due to the free room and board. You also might find that the hours are of little importance to many helpers; most are expecting to get paid by the day or have a monthly salary and not be paid by the hour (which is still a completely foreign concept in the PI).

    You might get more interest in the position if you give an idea of what you are willing to pay for the work and what barangay/area you are living in.

    I can throw this on the DI FB page and keep you updated if you provide a bit more information.

    I currently have a young lady that comes to clean/do laundry and she really only needs to come be here twice a week and laundry once a week. On cleaning only days she is working about 2 hours. Laundry days take about half the day (I bring them inside when they are dry....or, if I'm feeling lazy, leave them outside until her next cleaning day. lol).

    I used to use a helper to do laundry for 3 years. She did a good job. The draw backs were that she did the laundry once a week, and it took her full four hour part time day. Now I use a laundry service. They wash, dry, and fold, sometimes it looks like they iron too. They also put the fabric cleaner in the wash. My shirts are not dried outside in the sun, so they are not stiff like boards. When you look at the costs, including buying fabric softener,soap and bleach plus labor for home washes the cost is about the same. The big advantage is that you do not have to wait for wash day to come up every week, as you can take in a load of wash when ever you want. Actually I found this to works better than having a helper do the laundry for me. Of coarse you know no GF will let anyone touch their wash other than herself :o o:... none of the mechanical wash/dryer stuff for them... lol.

    Washing machine was one of the best investments I ever made and one of the first things I would buy when I get settled if you have a place for it. My clothes didn't dry stiff as a board but the towels did which didn't matter because they were still absorbent.

    If you have kids a washer machine is priority one, it pays for itself in no time at all

    Took me around 6 months to persuade the wife to get a machine,I'm sure they actually enjoy sitting there for hours on end scrubbing,it seems part of their culture. Anyway it wasted way too much time and water so now in the machine and 90 mins it's done,and drying here is 30 mins max outside.

    Thanks for the info and help. There are 5 of us in my family. My wife and I, along with 3 boys 17, 13 & 10. Our boys have to do chores each day, so they assist with the laundry. (They have to gather their own clothes, separate them, and help hang and bring in clothes from the line. They also help with the folding)

    I have a great washing machine, and the person I hire will really only have to do some ironing, and sometimes help with hanging clothes on the line, but primarily we take care of loading the washer, hanging the clothes, and bringing them in. I just need someone to fold and iron some items. (Sunday church clothes).

    As far as cleaning, we cook our own breakfast. But my wife also homeschools our children, so I need someone to clean up the kitchen after breakfast, help with the clothes, and in between do some light cleaning and assist with lunch, then clean up kitchen and check on laundry again before leaving.

    As far as payment, I am flexible. I will make sure the pay is in line with the task performed. We live in Barangay Camanjac off of Larena Drive, close to Judyville Subdivision.

    Hope this helps, and is enough info to put on the Facebook page.

    Sam

    I may know of someone who is eligible to do the job unless you have already filled the position. The person I am thinking of actually lives in Judyville.

    Cheers
