First of all, if you don’t know how to do your laundry yet, its time to learn. It is very simple and easy to pick up. Keep plenty of detergent, dryer sheets, bleach, and any other laundry products you will need. There are different types of detergents that you should look into. There is standard liquid detergent and small pods, or small individual load packets of soap. Pods are less messy and more convenient.
I highly recommend buying a tide to go stick. Tide to go stick is a convenient stain remover that you can take anywhere.
Second, make sure you have to right laundry basket or bag. I have had more success with the pop up basket (pictured below) , for the bag I previously owned had ripped. Most students wash their clothes about once every week or two, depending on their time availability and amount of clothing.
