I've found that a distressing number of my peers don't know basic things about keeping a house running(like, not leaving fruit rotting around and creating a fly or gnat infestation basic), let alone how to deal with basic minor maintenance and cleaning beyond using chlorox wipes.
Definitely this! We have a big deal over disposable products vs. more long term stuff. My other housemate is of the opinion that if you can buy a disposable product you should, because he doesn't want to "waste time" cleaning things. I object because of the expense - it costs way more to keep buying new stuff than to properly take care of things.
