Who doesn’t love to veg out in front of their TV and laptop screens once in a while and relate to the celebrities and fictional characters that occupy them? Being a leading provider in cleaning services in Malta, our team at JF Cleaning shares some of our favourite cleaning scenes that took place on our screens which will always have a place in our hearts *sniff*.


1. Queen – I Want to Break Free

What could possibly be more epic than Freddie Mercury dressed in skimpy women’s clothing (moustache and all) dusting and vacuuming a house? That’s right, nothing. Which is why this scene has made the top of our list.

2. Requiem for a Dream

The film, which depicts four different types of addiction, portrays Sara Goldfarb (Ellen Burstyn) discovering the abundance of energy – as well as devastating effects – that comes with swallowing legal diet pills containing amphetamines. In one scene, the effects of these diet pills lead to her cleaning the whole apartment in (what at the time was) a technically-inventive high-speed montage. The 20-second cleaning scene came from a 40-minute time-lapse and some tricky light effects to mimic the changing sunlight.

3. Mary Poppins

No list about on-screen cleaning is complete without Mary Poppins’ – a mysterious nanny – song ‘A spoonful of sugar’ while tidying the kids’ messy nursery up with the power of her mind and a few finger flicks. The magical Poppins shows the audience how much fun cleaning can be – if only we used some magic! In a film full of memorable moments, this scene is one of the film’s most memorable.

4. Mrs. Doubtfire

We started the blog with a man dressed as a woman and it is so that we shall end it. The late Robin Williams stars in this heart-warming flick, and in this famous scene dressed as an elderly woman, he pairs up with a vacuum cleaner and dances up a storm to Risky Business. A classic, heart-warming bit of cinema if there ever was any – often included in fun film montages.

If you’re looking for cleaning service for your home or establishment, JF Cleaning offers among the most reliable cleaning Malta has to offer. Our team may not be as eccentric as these characters, but we do get the job done well and efficiently!
