Sept 28 - Ukrainian "spotless"

The cleaning lady cleaned the apartment stairs and landings today. Their version of making it "spotless" includes one or two pails of water heavily scented with cleaner and using a mop to smear it around the 14 flights of stairs and 8 landings. You see in my attached pics stairs and landing are wet and smell better temporarily. However walking on it feels like they haven't cleaned anything. What she did is the equivalent of spitting on your handkerchief and attempting to clean a pig who just wallowed in a mudhole. To make these stairs and landings "spotless" would require 60 hours labor, 1,200 gallons of warm water and 53 gallons detergent.
