A woman has revealed she earns a six-figure salary by working just 16 hours a week – as a nude cleaner.
The 28-year-old business graduate and single mum, from Queensland’s Gold Coast, earns a living mopping, scouring and sponging homes completely in the buff.
The woman, who wished to remain anonymous, previously worked as a regular, clothed cleaner but said she has doubled her income and halved her hours by doing the job completely starkers.
She now earns $104K a year working for Queensland company Bare All Cleaning Service, who say they are satisfying a growing international appetite for their scantily-clad staff.
The idea is obviously a divisive and controversial one, and the business has found itself locked in a dispute with one local councillor who calls their services “disgraceful”.
The woman we spoke to however, has been happy with the job so far.
“I have a great body, so why not show it off?” she said. “I like being nude and enjoy the skin I’m in, so I really like the job.”
“Clients have all been respectful, the ground rules are laid out to clear to them on booking.
“Most of them just want to have a chat and watch.”
Founder of Bare All Cleaning Service Brett Jones, who launched the booming business in May after moving from Byron Bay, said clients were strictly prohibited from making advances on staff.
“To be clear, it’s a look-but-don’t-touch policy,” he said. “Our cleaners aren’t there to perform anything other than a cleaning.”
“There is no sexual activity other than entertainment.”
Brett has 150 cleaners on his roster – 95 of them females – with prices starting at $90 an hour for lingerie, $140 for topless and $169 for fully nude.
Clients book through a website which identifies them via payment details, and cleaners check in with employers on arrival and departure from every address.
In addition, there is a security system allowing them to be swiftly evacuated if trouble arises.
But these measures have done little to assure veteran Gold Coast City Councilor Dawn Crichlow, who had some strong words for Brett about how welcome he was in her neck of the woods.
“All I have to say is that the business is disgraceful and gives the Gold Coast a bad reputation,” Councilor Dawn said.
“Let them stay in Byron Bay.”
