  • Any nice ways to drop hints to a messy roommate?

    I'm trying to be as nice as possible because I don't want her to feel uncomfortable living here. We got a new roommate on the 1st of January and she'll be staying here until the end of July. Every time she cooks, she leaves bits of sauce, pasta, meat, whatever it is all over the counter tops and stove.... show more
    I'm trying to be as nice as possible because I don't want her to feel uncomfortable living here. We got a new roommate on the 1st of January and she'll be staying here until the end of July. Every time she cooks, she leaves bits of sauce, pasta, meat, whatever it is all over the counter tops and stove. We have a bi weekly cleaner come and she always turns her away and says she doesnt need it, even though you can't see the floor of her bedroom and the toilet in her bathroom is BLACK. I was horrified to see it one day when passing by since she'd left the door open. Finally last weekend, she wasn't home and the cleaner went right in and worked absolute magic. What killed me was the fact that the cleaner brought out a full trash bag of fast food, bottles, takeaway containers, utensils, etc. Some she even found under the bed! I'm nervous we're going to get ants or roaches! How do I politely drop hints to my roommate to be a little more tidy? Or do I have to be the bad guy and tell her to her face.....

  • Do not respond to anything outside your home?

    Best answer: I have heard not to respond to the sound of a baby crying. I guess it depends on your neighborhood. Look out the window first.

Then shut off the water tap and allow the pot to stand in the sink for 5 minutes and put back in its saucer. That was a heavy rain...like what happens outside.
    . Do not shallow water...just getting the top inch wet....especially in a 6" deep pot as the roots are at the bottom. Rain rarely happens in a short burst.
