US police are investigating after a real life cleaning fairy broke into a home to do some housework. The woman broke into a house in Westlake, Ohio, did some light cleaning, then left a bill for $75. She broke into the house while the owners were out but their teenage daughter was asleep upstairs.

The woman took out the rubbish, vacuumed the carpet and cleaned up the living room.

Homeowner Sherry Bush said: “I think our jaws just dropped to the ground. There were some coffee mugs that my husband had out. She had washed them all.

“She wrote a note on a napkin and left it on the table, saying, ‘$75 I was here to clean,’ and left her name and number.” Assuming she had got the wrong house, Mrs Bush gave the woman a call.

“I said, what happened, did you get the wrong house? She said, ‘No, I do this all the time’.                                  –WO
