Oh my word, I know exactly what you mean! My parents are the same, they can't do anything when it comes to cleaning. Though I can tidy up their huge messes rather quickly or somewhat, of course since they have too much junk it doesn't look beautiful but it looks acceptable at least since I can make their junk piles look more neat and such. I hate cleaning it but I like how it looks after the cleaning, of course I only clean when it's really needed because if I cleaned everyday they'd keep having more and more room to put their junk and eventually I'd run out of space to put things. Though of course the trash and dishes and important things like that are taken care of and such. But it's enough to drive someone insane, but since I have to put up with them I'm definitely going to have a nice clean home when I move out.

Just do your best, don't let them mess up things too much, it's best to clean it when it's easy to clean. But if your parents are like mine, best to not touch their junk often because if you make more room for them to fill, they'll keep buying more and creating more piles of junk to make the house look bad with. I know every time we'd clean the living room really clean for Christmas my mom would suddenly have it filled with boxes and where we put the boxes that once were in the living room would never get emptied out at the promised date or as a matter of fact years. My room has been filled with boxes since my sister's boyfriend came to visit 3 years ago, hence why I moved into my sister's old room. I still can't even get at my dresser, I wonder how long it'll be until one day I can take my old clothes out of it and bring them to my new room.

If you leave it as it is, it'll get messier and messier till you won't be able to handle it. And THAT will be a problem. It's really important to be clean, and by that your house has to look clean. Did you know when guests come over they''l judge you and your family by how is your house and how clean it is. Simple as that. I have the same problem and when my mom cleans its only when guests are on there way, she starts hurrying and when she finishes just in time it backfires because she gets tired and she has headaches, and back problems. But if your tired of telling your parents or siblings to clean there own mess, Hey! In 2 years you'll be able to live alone.


we never have guests over or rarely anyways it looks pretty good when i clean and then it gets messy in about a day... plus i have no siblings and i cant wait to move out but kind of nervous at the same time

Because no one likes to live in a shithole festering with ants, roaches, and rats.

leaving everything in one place for awhile will cause more bugs or other things to appear. Sooner or later u might find a rat living under your bed. keeping thing s clean well lower this.

It'll eventually get so messy that you'll have to clean it up. If you do it before that happens, you won't have to clean up huge messes. Instead, you'll clean up little messes.

Also, it helps when you're bored, and it's good for your health.

So it shouldn't be that hard to clean , We are 5 in the house, and damn it's hard if I leave the house as it is for 1-2 days o_O. You know what to make cleaning easier here's some tips : The only things that you have to do daily would be washing the dishes, the bathroom(s), and probably (I don't know in your case) clothes. But for washing the clothes since in your family there's only three members I don't think you have to do it on a 3 days basis maybe more. For the house, try to clean it out each 2 or 3 days : If you have a cat or a dog or any other mammals try to clean where they have been around the house (Sofa, kitchen,....) . I think it's gonna help a lot if you try that ! Wish you good luck.

Ps : Take your time : don't do everything at the same time, you'll have a great deal of stress. And that's not good for your health.

if you don't clean it once in a while, eventually it'll get really messy and you wouldn't even know what will grow under all that mess...!
