17 year does not like washing her clothes and her room is a disaster
My brother and myself had this same problem when we were her age. It drove my mom insane. She eventually got feed up and took everything from our bedrooms. The TV, clothes, the phone, etc. We had to earn it all back. We learned fast that we HAD to respect her house. Tough love will be you friend here... Good luck... Keep us posted.
My mother's rule was that there had to be a clear path to the door so you could get out safely in an emergency.
Set her up with a bunch of hooks to put her clothing on if she isn't sure she wants to wear it again. This helps keep it off the floor.
Nobody likes washing clothes. It's a hassle. Besides, unless clothes are getting actually filthy we don't need to wash them as much as we do. Give her a hamper or two to keep clothes off the floor and a bottle of febreeze to spritz clothes that may turn a bit smelly.
