    Screen Shot 2013-11-05 at 16.05.06Hassle is a UK startup that wants to make it easy and fast to book a cleaner in the UK. That might sound a pretty unsexy mission in life, but as we learned recently from IHateIroning, there’s some serious tech being put to work behind the scenes at such endeavours.

    Hassle launched in London earlier this year (originally under the name Teddle) and this week it’s expanded to Manchester. The startup offers a simple pricing model (£10 per hour and a £10 deposit) and easy access to nearby cleaners who have been vetted by Hassle staff. Although only a few months old, Hassle faces competition from the recently-launched Mopp, while the US has had the likes of Homejoy, Exec and Handybook since last year.
