One of my bf's friends and his gf come to stay with us about 2-3/year. They never clean up after themselves. I've tried telling my bf that this really upsets me, but he just says they're only with us for 2-3 days so what's the big deal. I think it is!

Your bf is not being respectful that your place is half yours and that no one should feel uncomfortable in their own home. Obviously, he's not going to do anything. The best ways (least confrontational while still setting boundaries) of handling this is to ask one or both of them to "give you a hand" with whatever chores you are doing. If they're reasonably intelligent, they'll get the hint.
