Mine pays £50 per month. He keeps his own room clean but I do his washing and most of his evening meals.

I don’t think you can realistically get back what it costs, but to me it’s more of a token gesture to get them used to having outgoings.

I wouldn’t dream of cleaning sons room myself. I’d ask him to do it if it wasn’t up to scratch, but it would feel like an invasion of his privacy if I even went in there uninvited.
