@sienna76:  I wouldn’t say anything. Soon he will be gone. Just keep an eye out on the tub. Yes, he should clean it but it’s not something to make a awkward situation out of(:

A friend and her Boyfriend or Best Friend stayed at our apartment and did this–leaving it that way. To be honest, it was totally shocking she would do that (well, she was a former roommate, I guess I shouldn’t have been too shocked), but I thought she was more considerate than that. I guess it’s hard to say with this guy, because it’s still in the middle of the event. Maybe he planned to clean it? I’m not sure I’d say anything, but maybe leave some cleaner out? He’ll surely notice you cleaned it, then he can either bring it up, or just hopefully clean up after himself?

I agree, don’t bring it up it’ll just be even more akward!! “hey, for some reason you’re VERY dirty and evidently hair and fluff are falling off your body at an alarming rate, so if you notice your body scum clogging our tub in the future, plus let us know so we an have the snake/plunger at the ready, k thanks”.

That’s so gross. However, because he’s only staying with you for a brief time, I’d let it go. And maybe figure out a strategy if he ever stays with you again.

@sienna76:  You’re a saint and way more patient than I am. I would have said something already! Though I hate having overnight house guests and would also have suggested a motel 😛

@BoxerLady:  Haha, this.

Honestly, I’d get a plunger or a drain snake (I love Zip Its) and leave it in the bathroom for him. Or have your husband say something. Because ew.

I’d just say something like “Hey, we noticed the drain was backed up the other day, and it doesn’t usually do that, so let us know if it happens again so we can call a plumber.”  Usually this gets the point across– hey buddy, clean up after yourself– but doesn’t actually call someone out on being a little piglet so there’s no hurt feelings.
