A cleaner who works in the buff has revealed more about her unusual working arrangements.
Lottie Rae started naked cleaning in 2017 as a way to make some extra cash and estimates that she has made thousands of pounds over the years.
Many of the 32-year-old's clients have been naturists themselves, but she's received jobs from those who want a little bit of company and some who are hoping for more than a spot of dusting.
Rae, who charges £50 a hour, said: "There’s a fair few people who are creepy – a handful of the guys I clean for book cleaners on the premise they will get something else.
"I’m clear I’m there just to clean but they’ll say that other cleaners have been strippers or given massages.
"The money has definitely helped. I wouldn’t do it if I wasn’t being paid the financial incentive."
Before settling on naked cleaning, she had experimented with other side hustles such as selling second hand clothes, but decided nude cleaning provided the perfect opportunity to meet new people.
Rae said: "I’m always looking for ways to make extra money and I quite like being naked, so I though ‘OK, I’ll try it’.
"The first job I was booked for I didn’t end up going.
"I freaked myself out after looking at the house on Google Maps and seeing it backed onto woodland and I was supposed to be there in the evening.
"But going forwards I thought ‘I can do this’ and started accepting jobs. I’ve met all sorts of people over the years."
Some clients aren't paying Rae to come by to clean.
Rae said: "One of my clients I cleaned for three times altogether, and his house was the dirtiest house I’ve ever come across in my life, teeming with dirt and grime.
"But when I got there he didn’t want me to clean it at all.
“He wasn’t creepy or pervy, he just wanted some company.
"I don't even wear gloves half the time even though I know I should - if it's a really dirty house I'm a bit conscious of where I stand but usually it doesn't bother me at all.
"One time a guy put porn on his TV and I had to say no. The people who are slightly creepier tend to have perfectly clean houses so it’s kind of an indicator.
"I’ve cleaned for some younger guys who seem more sociable, they’re out and about and just have disposable income and want to try something different."
Some of Rae's own clients are nudists themselves, leaving her family baffled by her choice of occupation.
Rae said: "Another guy I’ve worked with [for the whole six years] is a nudist, so to him it’s right up his street.
"He’s already naked when I get in, we have a coffee and I play with his dog and then get to work.
"The clients will get naked as well – a few of them are quite nervous at first and keep their clothes on until they’re confident enough to take them off.
"My friends and family know what I do, but I think they wonder why I do it. They think all these men are weird and creepy but in general they’re nice people.
"Over six years I've been in a couple of relationships and they’ve been completely cool with it, my current partner's sound with it, which is refreshing. I know a lot of my friend's partners wouldn’t be OK with it."
