Cleaning Checks

I live in King Henry Apartments and once a month we have cleaning checks. Each person in the apartment has a list of things to clean, then the cleaning lady comes and checks it. If you fail, then you are charged $5 and they comeback the next day to recheck. If you fail the recheck, then you pay $20 an hour for a cleaning lady to come and clean it for you. We just had our 5th or 6th cleaning check and I failed. In fact, I have yet to pass one. They are so rediculously strict! The one time i failed because i didn't clean the front door properly, when in fact i scrubed the door with Softscub bleach for 20 minutes. The most frustrating part is that i keep the apartment clean on a regular basis. I do the dishes, empty the dishwasher, take out the trash, replace the toilet paper, mop the kitchen floor and wipe down the kitchen table. Every Friday after school, i go on a little cleaning rampage and clean the bathroom, vanity area, kitchen and living room. The apartment smells like lemons for two days. Yet I always fail cleaning checks. Grr
