Or is that something I automatically have to do? She has an 8 month old baby, my niece, and I love them both, but they usually come over, my sister usually wants something to eat right before I begin cooking dinner, so I make her whatever she wants, usually don´t mind, and usually she leaves right after that, she takes a ton of toys out for the baby to play with, and leaves it ALL for me to do.. It is soo frustrating, because at the time she comes over (uninvited) is a ver inconvenient time for my family. DH is just getting home from work and I am usually enjoying my only hours of peace that I have during the day before I start dealing with dinner... I need to tell her to clean up after herself, at LEAST.. But I dont want to be rude. I love my sister and my niece.

"Hey sis, can you please tidy up before you leave? Thanks!" That's how I do it with my daughter. Short and firm in between, then I continue whatever I was doing before I said it. Don't wait for an answer. It's not open to discussion and any decent human being would answer "yes" anyway.
