5 Cleaning Tasks Every College Student Should Master

Now that the back-to-school season has officially arrived, you might be getting ready to send a college-aged student back to their university, or away for their freshman year! Before you pack up the ramen noodles and send your son or daughter back to the dorms for another semester of studying, make sure he or she understands how to handle these five common cleaning tasks.

  • Doing laundry the right way. Are your student’s white shirts looking a little more yellow than usual? Make sure your college student knows the difference between detergent, bleach, and fabric softener, and show them how to separate clothing by colors!
  • Cleaning pots and pans without a dishwasher. Some pots and pans, like those made of cast iron, should not be cleaned in the dishwasher. Teach your college student how to differentiate between dishwasher-safe materials and those that need to be hand-washed.
  • Decluttering like a pro. Unless your last name is “Kardashian,” chances are that your college student will be sharing a tiny dorm space for his or her first few years of college. Teaching your student how to organize and declutter their space can help them make a small space feel more like home!
  • Cleaning out laptop keys. Minch Professional Cleaning Services, LLC knows that college students are often on-the-go, and their laptop keyboards can quickly become full of crumbs and fingerprints. Show your college student how to use a cotton swab to clean in-between the keys. You might be surprised how much dirt might be hiding on his or her laptop!
  • How to clean the windows. Windows need to be sanitized too! Help your college student remember to wipe down the windows by sending them off with a bottle of Windex and a rag for streak-free shines all semester!
