O/T... Nice ways to get houseguests to clean up after themselves...
This is a bit off topic, but my husband invited his sister's family to stay with us for a couple months while they get ready to find a place in our area. They've been here for a couple months, and while I'm happy to help, I'm stressed. They are SO messy. They leave their stuff everywhere, don't do dishes, leave their dog's poop on the lawn, it's frustrating to say the least because we have SD6 and BS13 months and I work full-time, so as it is, I already don't have as much time to clean up as I'd like.
I know most people would kick them out or something but that's not an option. I don't want to burn any bridges over what's supposed to be a temporary situation. But seriously, I'm going a little crazy here. On weekends, my husband and I clean for 2 hours or so while the baby is asleep, then take turns watching him so the other person can keep cleaning. They typically hide out in the basement where they're staying when this happens.
We also clean up throughout the day and whenever possible but they just... don't seem to notice? Or they retreat to the basement. Does anyone have any polite ways of dealing with this??
