The co-owner of a naked cleaning company says that her business is booming after coming out of lockdown, with more and more folks demanding scantily clad - or not at all clad - cleaning services.
Thirty-four-year-old Nikki Belton launched her - let's say - unusual business at the beginning of the year, but was forced to put a stop to things once the coronavirus pandemic saw the UK totally locked down.
The Naked Cleaning Company carries out all manner of domestic tasks including vacuuming, dusting and wiping down surfaces.
The only difference is - obviously - they're in the nip.
Well, Nikki prefers to just clean in her lingerie, but she still gets her hands dirty in that respect.
Priced at £75 per hour for topless and lingerie cleaning, and £95 per hour for the fully naked scrub, it's not a cheap service she's offering.
However, Nikki and her crew of saucy sanitisers are experiencing a period of high demand just now.
Nikki, from Plymouth, explained: "I think our job is now more important than ever given the current situation and business has been very good, the demand for a naked cleaner has soared.
"Everybody's been struggling throughout the lockdown and we hope to help clean away coronavirus, one naked cleaner at a time."
"We're here to provide a smile and also help clean people's homes because at the end of the day, we're professional cleaners who are there to do a job.
"It's nice for people to have a bit of a quirky service like this after all we've been through in the past few months.
"Being at home in lockdown, I felt it was mentally draining and awful so I can understand how others might feel.
"Naked cleaning is bringing back happiness, fun and a sense of well-being after lockdown."
The whole process is secure, with clients and customers both identity and DBS checked. The cleaners wear gloves and masks, and avoid dangerous cleaning products such as bleach.
They're being doubly safe due to coronavirus guidelines, too.
Nikki continued: "When lockdown happened, we had to stop cleaning for a while but have recently started taking on jobs again with our new measures.
"The cleaning industry went back straight away and [cleaners] were allowed in people's homes, as long as the cleaner had a mask on and were keeping their distance."
"I've had lots of feedback from my cleaners who say they have been a friend for some who've been on their own in lockdown and this was their first opportunity for them to socialise.
"The clients have said that it's just nice to see a happy face again, especially those who have been by themselves for months who might be lonely.
"Getting myself and my cleaners back out has given me a boost too."
Well, as long as everyone is happy, and the houses are clean. That's the main thing.
