"You must clean their room"

Bonjour, I understand that using "Il faut" + infinitive is very formal, but if I want to express "You must clean their room" I believe this would be "Il te faut nettoyer sa chambre". Or, to sound less formal, would it be more common to say "Tu dois nettoyer sa chambre" ? Merci en avance ! Kathy

This question relates to:

It seems the form omitted part of my first sentence: Il *pronoun* faut" + infinitive is very formal

Hi Kathy,

You could say:

Il faut que tu nettoies leur chambre

Il te faut nettoyer leur chambre

Tu dois nettoyer leur chambre
