4 - Dorm Drying Rack
- This is an important dorm item you will want in your college supplies. Doing laundry in college is a unique struggle. If you're lucky enough to have a free dorm washer in the dorm laundry room, you may not be lucky enough to get a free dryer. You would think that since a washer is free, a dryer is free, but that's not so in college. Some college students may dry their clothes for a really long time or they simply won't remove their clothes promptly. If you do happen to get a free dryer in the dorm laundry room, then some of your clothes may still be damp when you remove them. Keep a dorm drying rack in your college dorm room for these moments. Dorm drying racks
fold up compact so you can store them underneath your dorm bed or in your college closet and take them out when you need to.
