8 Ways To Avoid Being An Awful Overnight Houseguest

how to be a good houseguest dont be messy

#7. Do Your Own Dishes
Plan to do your own dishes until someone tells you not to bother doing them. Regarding bathroom habits, make sure you do a courtesy flush and perhaps a once-over to rid the bowl of remnants. Also, plan to recycle. If you’re unsure as to whether it’s a priority, ask.

 #8. Send A “Thank You” Note
If you’re the last one out leaving a handwritten note works. If not, an email or card within the next few days will work, too. It doesn’t have to be flowery with language or profess your undying love for your friend. It just has to say thanks for being so cool and allowing me to spend time with you and your family.
