Every student needs a laundry hamper or basket for carrying their clothes to the laundry room. These items also function as a dirty laundry bin, which helps prevent clothing from being scattered across your dorm room floor. You can always bring a cheap laundry bag if you prefer keeping your clean clothes separate from the dirty ones.
Carrying a big bottle of liquid detergent to the laundry room is a hassle. Most students prefer using detergent pods because they’re light-weight and mess free. You can also get 3-in-1 pods with detergent, stain remover, and color protection!
Color catcher sheets help students save time and money by allowing different colors to be washed in the same load.
Most students leave their iron and ironing board at home, but they’re helpful if you have the extra space. A helpful trick is to get a foldable ironing board and hang it on the back of your door. Unless you’re someone who needs their clothes ironed on a frequent basis, it’s probably easier to use a dry cleaners near your college for a small fee.
A sewing kit is definitely worth bringing if you’re capable of making repairs on your own. You never know when you’ll need to reattach a button or fix a rip.
Most dorm washing and drying machines require students to pay with quarters or by swiping their Student ID card. It’s super convenient to keep a month’s supply of quarters in your dorm room desk.
