    When you live in halls obvs you dont have maids or anything but like the washing up liquid and anti bacterial spray you use in the kitchen how do u bring that up to split the price? I get that not everyone wants to be cleaning nor will people clean if you get me?
    Or do you each indivdually have your own?

    Most halls do in fact have cleaners who will come in twice a week or so and give the communal areas the once-over (surfaces, floors, showers, loos etc.)

    With washing up liquid we pretty much just did it on a taking turns basis; spray for surfaces was provided.

    most uni owned halls have cleaners who clean the kitchens, and at my uni our ensuite bathroom was cleaned once a week as well. as for buying washing up liquid, someone just bought some when we ran out and placed it in the kitchen, we didnt have a rota as such.

    Nobody cleaned the communal area in my flat, so I bought a bottle of stuff to clean the oven and hob, then some antibacterial spray for surfaces after the one that someone else had brought up with them ran out.

    We all bought our own washing up liquid though, and used our own, even though it meant having 5 bottles at the sink all year. It just saved arguments over whose turn it was to buy.

    With bin bags, it was whoever had a spare ended up putting one in the kitchen bin, there was no rota for buying them or anything.

    It'll depend on your flatmates how things will work out, it might be that you split the costs of washing up stuff, or you might all just use your own

    Haha xD

    Keep up with cleaning the oven, it is always easier to do if you don't let the muck get ground in! I left it because I got fed up of always doing it and after not cleaning it for about a month, I ended up spending 2 hours on the hob and about the same on the oven. The oven doors in our flat never did get clean though, but it's always best to try, or the oven might start producing smoke when you cook :P
