'Succeeds brilliantly in dismantling casual assumptions about the drudgery of cleaning - and about the kinds of people who do it for a living.' - THE GUARDIAN



'A jaw-dropping investigation' - THE BOOKSELLER



'A great book, well researched, funny and poignant. I loved it.' - KIT DE WAAL



Dishing the Dirt tells the stories of Britain's house cleaners for the very first time.



Drawing on extensive interviews, Nick Duerden hears from immigrants who clean suburban family homes to butlers who manage the homes of the super wealthy, from joyful cleaners and entrepreneurs to escaped victims of human trafficking, from women who dust nude and male cleaners who fear wandering hands.



Discover what they really think of their clients and have all of your assumptions about cleaners turned upside down.

Industry Reviews
'Succeeds brilliantly in dismantling casual assumptions about the drudgery of cleaning - and about the kinds of people who do it for a living.

- HELEN MCCARTHY, THE GUARDIAN


It's a remarkable, myth-busting piece of social commentary, which really does dish the dirt on some of the untold stories, lifestyles, hopes, dreams and aspirations of house cleaners.
