    Slob

    One of the meanings of “slob” in English is a person whose home is disorderly... books and mail lying on the floor, clothes hanging on the backs of chairs, half-eaten sandwiches left on the table. For instance:

    “My sister's house is as neat as a pin, but I'm a total slob. I couldn't fold a shirt if my life depended on it.”

    Is there an equivalent word in Russian? A person whose home is constant disarray?

    неряха is the closest.
    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!

    All those words are not specific. They are not only about disorder at home though can be used in context.
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
