Back to School Week: Shower & Laundry Essentials

Earlier I discussed the DORM ESSENTIALS and now I'm covering the items that you need for the shower and laundry.


  • Towels (at least 4), wash cloths, hand towels
  • If you use a communal shower, a shower caddy is a must-have! This one is mesh, this one is girly & waterproof, and this is the traditional version.
  • Toothbrush/paste holder & soap holder
  • Dry your towels on this over the door towel rack, over your desk chair, or via hook.
  • Shower shoes (flip flops)
  • Robe and slippers
  • Shower curtain: IF you have your own private bathroom.
  • Toiletries
  • Odor eliminator drops
  • Lint brush
  • Tide to Go cleaning pen
  • Laundry hamper/basket 
  • Laundry bag (some avoid mesh so no one can see their undies in the bag)
  • Detergent, dryer sheets
  • Coins or laundry card
  • Iron, ironing board
  • Sewing kit
  • Cleaning supplies (Ok, maybe I'm the only one that had these at college but I'm allergic to dust)
