New Zealand’s Morning-After Maids Are Cleaning Up After Wild Parties

1 minute read

Everyone loves a good house party, but it’s the hangover-addled cleanup the next morning that isn’t as enjoyable. Now, however, a New Zealand-based startup aims to bring upturned dwellings — and even splitting headaches — back to normal.

The aptly-named Morning-After Maids was launched about a month ago in Auckland by roommates Rebecca Foley and Catherine Ashurst, the Guardian reports.

Aside from cleaning up, the duo will also cook breakfast and even get coffee and painkillers for recovering revelers. Although they’re both gainfully employed, they fit cleanups into their nights and weekends (which is when their service is in most demand anyway).

Besides being flooded with requests from across the country, Foley and Ashurst have also received requests from the U.S. and Canada to set up franchises there. They are reportedly meeting with lawyers this week to see how best to take the business forward.
