What More Can I Do?
Posted 04 September 2012 - 10:47 AM
We keep dishes and food separate. My silverware is in a microwave cart away from everything else. I move all dishes they leave in the sinks or counters to the dishwasher which I don't use. I wipe down the counters and scrub the sinks multiple times everyday. I've started doing before each time I get anything out. We have separate dish towels and brushes.
I'm having some issues with the roommates and asked them to keep up with the kitchen because it was making me sick. They said they would and that they wipe down the counters everytime but neither are true and dishes haven't been done in over a week now and the dishwasher can't be closed anymore and I'm running out of space to stack all of their stuff.
What more could I do to keep things clean? Before school started I did everyones dishes and all the cleaning but I just don't have time and I don't think it'll get through to them to keep up with cleaning the kitchen until I get sick or past my breaking point of patience.
I don't want to cause drama with the roommates and just keep their stuff out of the way and my areas as clean as I can expecting/knowing that the roommates won't clean as much as they say they do.

I'd just suck it up and do whats necessary to keep myself safe. Some days that would mean cleaning the entire kitchen.
Probable Endometriosis, in remission from childbirth since 2002.
Hashimoto's DX 2005.
Gluten-Free since 6/2011.
DH (and therefore Celiac) dx from ND.
Responsive to iodine withdrawal for DH (see quote, above).
Genetic tests reveal half DQ2, half DQ8 - I'm a weird bird!

It is too bad you took responsibility for doing the kitchen duties before classes started cause you spoiled them and they will likely expect you to do all of it for ever.

I don't have confirmed celiacs but a confirmed wheat allergy with celiacs symptoms so im completely gluten free.
I don't think they've been using flours at all but could other things be getting into the air by just being left sitting in an open dishwasher? Something obviously caused my insides to turn to yellow mush and was super tired with headaches and sick in the mornings. Finally feeling closer to normal again and trying to keep it that way.
