flashA young man has decided to bare all to become a naked cleaner – and he says business is booming.
Daniel Aitken started his new business just two weeks ago after first proposing the idea as a joke to his parents.
The 26-year-old former construction worker now strips down to nothing but a pair of rubber gloves as he puts some elbow grease into cleaning the homes of Brighton residents in the UK.
And despite his unique venture, Daniel – who charges $55 per hour for his cleaning services – is thrilled by the surge of interest after setting up his own business Facebook page.
“I’m aware it’s a pretty random job but I saw a gap in the market and thought I would jump at the opportunity,” Daniel said.
“I have already cleaned six people’s house in one week and despite being naked, I don’t feel awkward.
“I’m quite confident and so far my clientele have been a mixture of men and women who are mostly middle aged.”
Daniel – who cleans in the buff after stripping down in the customer’s homes – hopes his new business will go from strength to strength.
“I just turn up to their house with a bottle of Flash (cleaning product), dust pan and brush, take my clothes off and start my shift,” he added.
“I don’t mind putting myself out there, I am sure it is nothing they haven’t seen before.
“So far all my customers have ensured they are home and have tended to follow me from room to room whilst we chat and clean, I am very good at multitasking.
“My friends think it is hilarious but I remain professional and ensure their house is spotless when I leave.”
Daniel is also a touch therapist – which involves cuddling strangers for up to $80 per hour – an additional service he adds onto his cleaning.
“The aim of professional cuddling is to give companionship, this I do fully clothed,” he said.
“It is a mixture of men and women who buy these services, I have learnt a lot about Brexit when cuddling older men.
“If you go without human touch for a while, you can feel isolated so sometimes I just meet my clients in a cafe.
He hopes all the funds saved will allow him to built his own property in the next few years.
