Dorm Cleaning Supplies: A Survival Kit

In college, there is the added bonus of having cleaning services for the bathrooms, hallways, and common rooms. Unfortunately, your mom won’t come every morning and pick up after you, after a night of hard partying anymore, so it’s important for the sanity of your roommate to keep the place somewhat clean. A lot of these products make it so easy so you can do it while hung-over or drunk if need be.

Even though the cleaning people come every morning, the shower and sink can be skive from mid-afternoon on due to whole floors of co-ed’s going in and out. Avoid the unseemly trip to the campus hospital by brushing some of this on the shower before you use it. If you want to beat foot fungus with shower flip flops, it’s better to be safe when you absolutely have to touch the sides of the shower.

A miracle to mask any icky smells from cigs, alcohol, or puke from a fun night out. Also, works as a day brightener when you spray it on your comforter at night and go to sleep. When you wake up it still smells slightly fresh making you feel like you’re in a hotel room with fresh sheets rather than a dorm where you haven’t done laundry in a few weeks.
