    I moved in a flat a few months ago. There were a couple and a guy who were already living there. They never spoke to each other. When I arrived and tried to talk to them, they weren't interested so we never talked. We have cleaners come in once a week to clean the common area. Now the couple aren't happy about the cleanness of the flat and require us to clean more than once a week.
    Mind you, I'm not the cleanest person but I'm clean. For example I wash everything after I use the kitchen and BEFORE I eat. I pick up hair from the bathroom and put them in a bag every time I shower. Whereas I saw red hair on the fu*king wall sometimes (not mine) and wonder how the hell they ended up on there. Of course what I did is not perfect but it's clean overall and they are just not happy. The flat is cleaner than most flats I've been to. We see each other pretty much everyday in the kitchen but they just don't have the decency to talk to me face to face.
    They also asked me to buy supplies to share together. I don't feel comfortable sharing supplies with them as they are not friendly. I prefer using my own toilet roll and rubbish bag.I used to have my own bathroom now I'm sharing with other people it feels like stuff are gone very quickly. Maybe that's why I always forgot to buy things say washing liquid (as when I had things by myself they lasted for ages) now they are not happy.
    There is no way I would spend time on hovering the common area as it is relatively clean and I PAID for the cleaner to do it once a week. I'm going to tell them I prefer using my own stuff but the cleaning is a no go for me. What should I tell them?

    EDIT: not just a few strands of red hair but a huge glob of red hair on the wall
