In 2024 International Cleaning Woman Day takes place on November 08 like it does every year. The idea for International Cleaning Woman Day came from crime writer Gesine Schulze, whose novel heroine Karo Rutkowsky is a cleaning woman and private detective. In 2004 the author proclaimed International Cleaning Woman Day on the birthday of the novel heroine. A cleaning woman is a woman whose job is cleaning. People from this profession offer many possibilities for crime story plots.
They are everywhere but often overlooked; they have a master key and see a lot - best circumstances for the job of a private detective. On International Cleaning Woman leave a greeting card for a cleaning woman or talk to one. You’d be surprised of what interesting things she sees each day. Maybe she even knows more about yourself than you would ever have expected. International Cleaning Woman Day should not be mixed up with National Custodial Worker Day on October 2.
