Looking for a nanny, wondering about duties

Is it ok to ask your nanny to do some basic cleaning and child's laundry or is that inappropriate?  

First time mom, and care seeker over here, just trying to gauge common practices so I don't put my foot in my mouth :-) 

[Note from the Moderator: Here are responses from BPN's 2018 survey about duties: https://www.berkeleyparentsnetwork.org/recommend/2018-nanny-survey-resul...  ... BPN is currently conducting a new nanny survey for 2021.  Do you have a nanny right now?  If so, please complete the survey - it only takes 5 minutes!  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BPNnanny2021 ]
