If you keep cleaning up after a member of your household who doesn't clean up after themselves you're just as at fault. amirite?

I had 3 or 4 roommates in college who would leave their dishes in the sink for days on end, making the sink essentially unusable to those who wanted to do their dishes. Honestly I forgot what my other roommates and I did to encourage cleaning but I don't think they ever came around fully to cleaning up within a reasonable time frame.

Technically you are encouraging the behavior I suppose.

I'd rather have a clean house. Why is it my fault that they don't clean?

I like a clean house, also, but why should someone in your household clean when they know you will?

If you´ve already talked with them about that problem and nothing has changed afterwards, I don´t think not cleaning after them will net any positive results. At that point, either try talking about it again with more assertiveness or leave would be the only approaches I´d see working.

Did that and I just wound up living in filth.

Or if it's your home just kick them out.

Yeah, that's not going to work. It's just going to make the house messier. It is not going to encourage them to clean.
