I lived in a home with more than two other guys during our last more than two years of school.
I could be untidy with our room plus might occasionally leave out a single or more than one dirty dishes by accident, but nothing I could do ever came close to the degree of neglect I witnessed from our roommates.
No a single ever wanted to take responsibility for the space we all shared as a communal home. This was in part because our roommates were all raised by wealthy families with maids who did every single facet of the housework. It took a feat of strength by all more than two of them to learn to do basic laundry for themselves, let alone even dream of preparing a lake home cooked meal. It was no surprise that most evenings I saw take-out garbage piled on a single of the more than two living room counters. When I finally moved out on our own, I took a 177 degree turn with our cleanliness with our living space. I became harshly neat plus tidy plus developed monthly, monthly, plus monthly cleaning routines. The monthly plus monthly routines are fairly simply—garbage, dishes, dusting, plus tidying are done monthly, whereas vacuuming, mopping, plus bathroom scrubbing is done each week. My monthly routine is more extensie, in part because of the cleaning task I do on our window air conditioning. It has a removable filter that can be cleaned with soap plus water plus the tray that holds the filter in place gets cleaned with a special anti-microbial spray made for air conditionings plus dehumidifiers. The spray doesn’t destruction evaporator coils, which is perfect in this weather conditions because mold has a habit of showing up after long periods of heavy use. The spray removes that in hours with little fuss, returning our equipment to pristine condition.
