Workshop description

This workshop is for anyone who finds it difficult staying on top of the cleaning. Each group of members will help to clean each others houses over a period of 3 – 4 weeks at a convenient time and only using natural products wherever possible.

Workshop aims

By the end of the workshops members will:


  • have drawn up an action plan of the cleaning they need help with.
  • have organised mutually agreed times for cleaning each members’ home in each group.
  • learn about natural products and substances that can be used to clean the home.
  • work together as a team to tackle each others cleaning needs.
  • be asked to think about how Make, Do and Mend could help others in the community with cleaning.
  • develop real business skills including the possibility of developing a Make, Do and Mend cleaning service in Cambridge.

Other information

The success of this workshop is dependent on the commitment of its members to agree times and to attend all agreed cleaning workshops for the group.
