Overview
-

Many people simply couldn’t do without a cleaner. Once the preserve of the upper classes, domestic help is now a middle class necessity. Yet, what do we really know of the incomers who toil behind closed doors? What’s their story? And how do they see their clients?

Based on dozens of interviews, Dishing the Dirt tells the real story of house cleaners for the first time. We hear from the eastern Europeans who mop up family homes and from south Asians who wipe down mansions. We talk to joyful cleaners and to slave labourers. We talk to women who dust nude for men, gay cleaners who fear wandering hands, and butlers managing millionaires in London.
