Dorm Essentials for Doing Laundry in College
Doing laundry while in college is a necessity. It may not be the most fun thing to do while enjoying the freedom of dorm life, but it is still crucial. And in order to make sure laundry day runs smoothly, you are going to want certain college supplies with you on move in day so you don't have to worry about them later. If you didn't receive any of these items as a highschool graduation gift, we recommend you add them to your essential dorm supplies checklist! From a must have dorm laundry bag or college hamper down to a convenient and compact dorm sewing kit, these college laundry items will help you out all semester long.
1 - College Hampers & Dorm Laundry Bags - The most important dorm laundry accessory to have is a college laundry bag or dorm room hamper. Your college laundry hamper is going to be a staple within your dorm room, so you may want to choose the perfect color to match your Twin XL bedding as well as your college decor. But you will also want a functional dorm laundry bag that will make storing your dirty (and clean) laundry and transporting it to and from your college dorm to the dorm laundry room a breeze! Easily carry your laundry with our durable TUSK® Laundry Backpack, which also comes with a pocket for dryer sheets or other college accessories. Or, go with Gomie for the best dorm laundry experience! With so many unique features and two available sizes, standard and mondo, this high quality college duffle laundry bag with wheels is the perfect dorm companion when it comes to laundry. Designed with durable wheels and a handle for easy transport, this black dorm laundry bag is also made with two sturdy zipper openings that will keep your dirty clothes in, but also allow for easy access to take your clean clothes out after washing. With one of our essential college laundry bags or dorm hampers as part of your dorm room, laundry day isn't going to seem so bad.
2 - Laundry Station - If you have the space (or your own laundry appliances) why not add a handy Suprima® Laundry Station to your college supplies checklist? Moving your dirty clothes to the washing machine, separating them, and grabbing your laundry detergent and fabric softener is a whole lot easier with this useful dorm apartment Laundry Station. Made with a durable metal frame, this Laundry Station in white or black comes with a small clothes bag and a larger clothes back that are perfect for sorting your clothes before it's time to wash them, making laundry day incredibly easy. This college shelving unit also has a top shelf that is perfect for all of your laundry supplies. This does not just keep them close at hand when you are doing laundry, but it also frees up space in your dorm room or college apartment!
3 - Stain Remover - This is one of the most important dorm accessories for laundry that you will go dorm room shopping for. If your parents did your laundry at home, you might not know what to do should stains occur on your clothing. When living in a dorm room, it's inevitable that your clothes will become stained at some point thanks to a sometimes hectic college schedule. Whether you tripped when leaving a classroom and spilled coffee on your favorite shirt or some grease from pizza dripped onto your favorite pair of jeans, you can't just throw away your favorite clothes and you're going to want to have some powerful stain remover as part of your dorm supplies. Our Mom's Magical Goop Stain Remover is one of the toughest college stain remover solutions around and can even remove old stains! Grease, markers, paint, makeup, gum...this powerful dorm essentials item removes it all and lets you keep your clothes looking nice and new!
4 - Hangers - Once you are done with your laundry, it's time to hang it up! Crumpling up your clothes into a ball and throwing them into your dorm dresser or in any of your college storage items kind of defeats the purpose of washing them. Our variety of affordable dorm hangers can help you pick just what you need to not only hang up your clothes, but also your scarves, jewelry, and even your dorm bathroom toiletries. These cheap dorm items are an essential part of your college supplies checklist as they will help you organize your college closet and your entire dorm room.
5 - Irons & Steamers - Okay, so maybe you didn't have time to fold up your clothes right after they were done. With a busy college schedule, it happens, which is why it can't hurt to bring an iron or steamer with you when you head off to college. Keep your clothes looking fresh no matter how wrinkly they are with one of our dorm approved steamers or irons. Of course, if you bring an iron with you to your dorm room, don't forget about an ironing board! We wouldn't recommend ironing your clothes on your dorm dresser or college desk and definitely not on your extra long Twin bed. These helpful college laundry accessories will help you keep your clothes looking great and keep the rest of your dorm room safe.
