This is a wonderful book where Cinderella does not marry the prince but instead becomes an entrepreneur and cares for herself by running a cleaning service.  I owned this book many years ago.  It is lost and I cannot remember the title or author.  I just know that I would love to find as many copies as possible and gift them to my nieces and my friends' daughters.  Does this story ring a bell with anyone?  Any ideas on how to find it?

There are a couple books out there by the author Bruce Lansky. The books are collections, and they are called Newfangled Fairy Tales. One of them, I can't remember which, contains a story of Cinderella skipping the ball and opens her own dressmaking business. It's not exactly what you were describing, but maybe it will help?

I googled "cinderella cleaners" and found there is an entire series of pre-teen books called the Cinderella Cleaners  at cindrellacleanersbook.com.    Author is Maya Gold.

It doesn't sound exactly like what you are talking about though!
