Dorm rooms have become many college students’ home away from home. It’s where they ready, study, eat, sleep, drink, hang out, and yes, party even. With so many activities college students spend in their dorm rooms, it must be a challenge to spare a few minutes in tidying up the place. There are, however, quick ways on how to clean a college dorm room in just about 15 minutes.
- Small microfiber mop
- Paper towels / sponge
- Clorox Disinfectant Wipes
- Water ionizer
- Tap water
- White vinegar
- Baking soda
- Trash bags
- Laundry basket
- Small / Hand vacuum
1. Make the bed.
Fold the blanket, straighten out the sheets, and pile up the pillows. Making the bed gives an organized look, especially to one-room units. Use simple beddings for easy clean up.
2. Clean the fridge.
Get rid of spoiled food or anything that’s past its expiry date. If it smells, wipe the fridge’s interior with white vinegar and baking soda. If there’s none, use ionized water instead. Use portable, battery-powered, handheld ionizers like the Ionator EXP.
Collect and segregate trash. Use 2 trash bags – one for recyclables, and one for biodegradables. Dispose of them properly. Find out the garbage collection schedule from the dorm director.
Stuff all dirty clothes into a laundry basket or hamper. If the basket‘s already full, then it’s time to do the laundry. Fold and stack up clean clothes. If there’s not enough space left, place them in a big box or clean, unused garbage bag and stash it under the bed.
Wipe away grime and dirt on surfaces using the remaining ionized tap water. Wipes are also perfect. Clorox Disinfectant Wipes are convenient to use in dorm rooms. It kills 99.9% of bacteria on all surfaces. It also works best on electronics like computer keyboards and phones, any touch-point, even tables and countertops.
Vacuum the carpet. If there’s none, then sweep and mop the floor. Use a small mop to better maneuver tight spaces. 2-in-1 mops also seem to be the “in” thing in dorm rooms these days. These are the mop-and-nozzle-spray-in-one types. If there’s none, then just use a regular microfiber mop along with disinfectant cleaners like Clean by Peroxy. For wooden floors, use ionized tap water.
Cleaning a dorm room is quite fast and easy, as long as the proper cleaning tools are available. Invest in cleaning devices that are ergonomically designed, safe, and effective. For more information, visit www.goodearthproducts.net.
