I don't think there is much that you can do, men are messy. My husband alone manages to mess up my house everyday. Yesterday he tore my fancy curtain trying ti use it to close the door it is hanging on. It's a curtian not a door knob! But that's men for you. The only thing that i have found that helps is to reduce the amount of stuff in your house that they can make a mess with, for example, get rid of or hide most of your dishes so there ae just enough for the meals that you serve each day, that way the don't have the option of dirtying 20 bowls by getting a new one each time they get a new snack. I have tired fighting with my husband about being a messy slob but have had no positive results from that. My sister posts notes all over her house to try to keep her boyfriend and male roommate from messing stuff up, note like "No eating by the computer." but she still has a hard time getting them to pay attention to them. Well that's about all I can offer you on this subject right now. I hope some of it is helpful somehow.

I think you should put your foot down with the 2 brothers and tell them to clean up after themselves. Hubby included if he is making a mess also! There is no reason for you to clean up after them every single day if they are capable of doing it themselves.
