I'm assuming that if you're reading these posts you might be curious about how a 22,000 square/foot house like this is run. And I don't mind sharing what knowledge I've got from time to time.
I don't have a staff of twenty, so what knowledge I do have would be the fast way to get things done--although based upon sound cleaning principles, I should hope.
In addition to all that was taught in Butler School, we rely heavily upon Martha Stewart around here.
She's absolutely brilliant, and many of her recommendations were required reading (and videos) in the school. Her insistence, for example, to use a fluffy white towel atop the ironing-board cover for anything that needs to be ironed is the order of the day! And indeed, everything ironed turns out better.
When I'm stumped over some cleaning procedure, or bored with the menus we must prepare for our employers, or need some new ideas for seasonal or party decorations, who better to turn to than Martha Stewart?
If you need help on anything, you can reach her at Martha Stewart.com. Right at the top on her home page there's a search bar to type in any question or topic.
While I try to follow her advise, again I don't have a large staff. So for any recommendations I might have, think of Stewart on speed.
No, that's not quite right. Stewart with a bleary-eyed hangover (that's better), needing to get things done quickly! Ha!
Thanks for reading,
ADDENDUM: July 30
After many inquiries about the way this house is run, I did elaborate in a later entry entitled "House Cleaning for a Billionaire", posted on July 28, in case you might be interested.
