I've used AirBnB 7 or 8 times in the past few years, and each time I think "I'll never do it again" - mostly because of the crazy list of cleaning things some hosts require.
One house "Rules" stated that we had to wash/clean all bedsheets, towels and fold them, in addition to literally cleaning toilets and bathtubs. Since I did not want to get a bad rating, I made my extended family clean for 2 hours before leaving that place. So here we were- 4 of us professionals on vacation, cleaning this house for 2 hours. Insanity, right?
On more than one occasion, we have nearly missed a flight or train because we've been cleaning dishes, taking out trash, etc - just to comply with "rules".
So, I'm back in the game once again this summer, this time in Paris for 5 nights, excited for this beautiful apartment but dreading the clean up.
My question is: how much do you guys clean when you're at an AirBnB?
Mind you, all places charge a cleaning fee, so I just get really crazy thinking about the wasted hours on vacation cleaning.
