Cleaning is not the best way to spend your free time when you are a college student. If you have better plans for the evening or lots of homework to do, it’s just annoying to even think about the need to clean up. We feel you. Here are a few easy ways to keep your dorm room clean longer and without too much effort, so you can enjoy your time.
There is a problem that many students who live on campus face – a bad smell in the room. How to make sure your place smells nice without too much struggle? We know the answer:
You might also use some air freshener, but remember that cleaning your room is much a better option than trying to disguise a bad smell.
There are little things that don’t take much time but still make much difference if you do them daily. Such little daily tasks might be:
Yes, you will still have to do cleaning from time to time, but it will much easier for you to do it if you don’t make a lot of mess on a daily basis.
Organizing your things is one of the tasks that you should definitely complete in order to keep your room clean. There are a lot of convenient organizers sold that can help you store everything you need and free the space in your room. Some students prefer buying boxes that they can put underneath their beds. It is convenient at first, but then, as you put stuff in there or take something out, everything will be messed.
Better try organizers with compartments that you can use to separate and store your belongings. For example, a shower cuddy with pockets will be a better option than just a plastic bag. And it’s much easier to find the item that you need in there.
What you also need to organize is your cleaning schedule. If you live with a roommate, you really need to create one and decide who will be responsible for each of the tasks.
However, if you even live alone, you still need a cleaning schedule – it will remind you how often you should vacuum or avoid forgetting to clean your mirrors. It’s always great to have a list of things that you need to take care of, as we all know that a student’s life is usually a bit chaotic and busy.
It’s not that hard to keep your room clean if you do it every day and don’t let the mess pile up. Remember a simple rule – if the cleaning takes less than 5 minutes, do it now! The longer it takes you to wash that dishes, the harder it will be to do it.
