The American Dental Association recommends that students replace their toothbrush every 3-months, so a 2-pack should last you a semester. Most schools also have on-campus convenience stores that sell toothbrushes and toothpaste.
Mouthwash can come in handy when you have a couple minutes to eat between classes, but don’t have enough time to run back to your room to brush your teeth. A lot of students keep a refillable travel size bottle in their backpack and the regular bottle in their dorm room.
A lot of students use 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner because they’re cheap and easy to use. You can also save money by purchasing a complete set or in bulk, which helps cut down on trips to the store.
Every college student has the occasional bum day — no shower, hoodie, sweatpants, and hat — but you’ll still want to smell fresh before heading to class.
You should bring whatever hair care supplies you use at home. Combs also magically disappear a lot, so bringing a few extra might be a good idea.
A lot of students use electric razors because they only require new blades every 12 months and reduce the risk of cuts and ingrown hairs. While they are significantly more expensive than manual razors, you’ll end up saving money in the long run. If you prefer a closer shave in certain areas, you can always bring both!
A nail clipper, tweezer, and pack of q-tips should definitely be in your college dorm inventory.
A lot of students get dry lips and hands from walking to class in the wintertime, so it’s a good idea to bring chapstick and a small bottle of hand lotion.
College campuses are breeding grounds for germs and other bacteria, so it’s important to wash your hands regularly. Most students also keep a small bottle of hand sanitizer in their backpack.
