Hello,

Could you tell me whether this sentence is correct?

"She is cleaning the house and when she is done with it (or when she is done with cleaning), she can go out".


Thank you

It's fine either way. 'with it' is the more probable phrasing.

Even more likely,

She's cleaning the house, and when she is done, she can go out.

If you've already mentioned what somebody is doing, you don't have to repeat it in a with-phrase.

Andy shaved his beard off today. When he was done with shaving, the face in the mirror no longer looked like Andy.

I would use "when she's done" or "when she's done with that".
