HOW: WGE lets you select your cleaner based on their specific talent...cleaning talent, that is. (e.g., cluttered closet? Ask for an "organizer." Mold in your bathroom becoming self-aware? Ask for a "scrubber").
WHO: The cleaning-impaired and anybody who's just too busy or lazy to dust (it's hard to watch Entourage while you're trying to get rid of mildew).
WHEN: White Glove can work on short notice and will give you a follow-up call to make sure everything was satisfactory. They are bonded and insured, so if someone pulls a De Niro's maid and breaks or steals your stuff you should have some recourse.
HOW MUCH: $22 an hour (plus tip) for occasional visits, with a minimum of four hours. Have them come every two weeks and the rate drops to $19 an hour.
WHY: No one's quite sure why, but girls hate dirt and parents favor tidiness. Get better results when ladies come back to your place, and make mom and dad proud (note: WGE does not guarantee success with the ladies or love from your family).
