I lived in a house with 3 other guys during my last 3 years of university.
I could be untidy with my room as well as might occasionally leave out one or 2 dirty dishes by accident, but nothing I could do ever came close to the degree of neglect I witnessed from my roommates.
No one ever wanted to take responsibility for the space the two of us all shared as a communal home. This was in section because my 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 3 of them to learn to do basic laundry for themselves, let alone even dream of preparing a house cooked meal. It was no surprise that most evenings I saw take-out garbage piled on one of the 3 study room counters. When I finally moved out on my own, I took a 179 degree turn with my cleanliness with my living space. I became drastically neat as well as tidy as well as developed yearly, biweekly, as well as biweekly cleaning routines. The yearly as well as biweekly routines are fairly simply—garbage, dishes, dusting, as well as tidying are done yearly, whereas vacuuming, mopping, as well as washroom scrubbing is done each week. My biweekly routine is more extensie, in section because of the cleaning task I do on my window A/C. It has a removable filter that can be cleaned with soap as well as water as well as the tray that holds the filter in locale gets cleaned with a special anti-microbial spray made for A/Cs as well as dehumidifiers. The spray doesn’t destruction evaporator coils, which is perfect in this climate because mold has a habit of showing up after long periods of heavy use. The spray removes that in minutes with little fuss, returning my machine to pristine condition.
