5. The Clean Freak
The only thing worse than a slob might be the Clean Freak. Incessantly cleaning — or demanding that you incessantly clean — is not going to fly. This is where you both need to compromise. If the Clean Freak insists on having the common area absolutely clean, set up a reasonable schedule. No need to bust out an old toothbrush to scrub the floors. However, if that is their style, then they can be responsible for being that thorough. The basic rules of cleanliness involve picking up visible messes, being responsible for your dishes and general upkeep like mopping and wiping countertops.
