Roommate is Pig Pen

Dear Sugar
My roommate has awful hygiene and is a slob. He goes as long as 15 days without showering. He never wears underwear, socks, deodorant or changes his undershirts. He barely even brushes his teeth. It's so disgusting. He has an odor to him when he passes by and it's making our digs stink. What should I do? -- Grossed Out

Dear Grossed Out
It's always a surprise when someone is not aware of themselves and you have to confront him. You live there too and have the right to a clean environment. This sounds pretty nasty. It's time to set your boundaries by establishing house rules. To get the ball rolling, create a cleaning chart with equal responsibilities. If that doesn't work, hand him a copy of OHSA Regulations (Occupational Health and Safety Act) along with Clorox Cleaning Wipes.
