Dorm Room Laundry Essentials

College students have a bad reputation when it comes to doing laundry. Not all of them have their moms wash their clothes on the weekend. Not all of them stain their whites with a rogue red sock. And not all of them wait 5 months before doing a load of laundry. 

For those college students who are laundry savvy, or at the very least clean their clothes more than once per semester, these items will come in handy:

Pop up hamper – saves space, comes in fun colors and patterns, has handles for easy portability

Light weight laundry basket or laundry bag – for holiday breaks when the dirty laundry comes home to visit

Laundry backpack – who says backpacks are just for books? 

Sewing kit – hopefully someone in your teen’s dorm knows what to do with one.

Stain remover

Drying rack – not only does air drying prevent favorite clothes from shrinking, it saves poor college kids a few quarters

Table top ironing board and iron – you never know, it might actually get used

Detergent pacs – avoid measuring and save space with laundry detergent pacs that take the guesswork out of doing laundry

Laundry book and app – send your laundry beginners off to college with a “how to do laundry” book or have them check out this blog post on popular laundry apps. {link to laundry app post}

Lots of quarters!
