ANSWER 1 Leaving them for a few hours or over-night should not be had for your health. It might severely damage relationships, though. ANSWER 2 Micro and macro organisms dip in and can thrive. More difficult to remove stains from vessels later. This may necessitate use of strong detergents and traces of these soaps may remain on dishes and ingested daily over years. This can cause symptoms of chronic poisoning, which goes undiagnosed and is difficult to treat.

What if your roommate is dirty?

Step one is to let them know their ways bother you and to give them an opportunity to not be dirty. If that doesn't work then you can start getting creative. Like if they leave dishes out with nasty food on them, just put them in their room..on their bed. If that doesnt sicken them, then you should probably just move out, because if someone can tolerate that then they probably will never change.
