What To Clean in Your Dorm Room
1. Clean Your Sheets
You would be surprised how dirty your sheets could get. I know I’m not the only one that does literally everything in her bed.
Many late-night snack crumbs, dead skin, and sweat could literally be in your bed. GROSS right?! My suggestion is to find a day to do your laundry and wash your sheets as well. Clean sheets never felt so good!
These are probably my favorite thing to use while I am cleaning up my room and bathroom. When it comes to sweeping I suggest doing that daily because you would be surprised how much dirt is collected only in a day.

3. Wash Your Towels
It sounds reasonable enough to wash your towels. But it’s possibly one of the most forgotten things to wash. It’s been everywhere. I suggest try to wash your towels every other day. Make sure you have extra towels!
I learned this hack from a friend of mine.
Every night she would pick out her outfit for the next day and placed everything back. So in the morning she would have everything together and just leave for class.
5. Clean Your Fridge/Microwave
Your refrigerator and microwave
One advice about keeping your microwave clean is covering your food before putting it in.
6. Empty Trash Regularly
Last thing you want is bring in unwanted pests from not taking your trash out. One of my friends experienced seeing a rat in her dorm room near her trash.
Maintenance eventually caught the rat but it’s better to be safe than sorry. After taking your trash out try to spray it down with disinfectant often to get rid of the horrid smell fo expired food and other things.

I was so surprised how much dust can collect if you don’t do it at least once a week. Invest in a duster or even get an all-purpose cleaner and a cloth to wipe down surfaces.
Be sure to dust down your computer, Tv, fan, and other surfaces.
8. Clean Door Handles
You don’t know where your hands has been. You have no idea how many germs are being spread. Get your some disinfect spray and a paper towel and make sure to wipe it down well. Will it kill everything? No. But it will at least sanitize and kills most of the germs.
9. Clean Your Mirror
It’s pretty self explanatory but it’s really easy to clean at least once a week. Don’t you want a clean mirror to take some selfies!
If you are lucky enough to share a bathroom with only your roommates. That is beyond awesome. If you do have a bathroom I would suggest to split up cleaning responsibilities.
There are numerous thing to clean in your bathroom like the sink, mirror, shower, toilet, and your floors. You want to keep your bathroom as clean as possible! I know it’s possibly one of the least popular choices but it’s something we got to do
11. Make Your Bed
I enjoy making my bed. It’s the first thing I do to when I wake up. it prevents me from going back to sleep but it also makes my room look clean. A made bed makes a drastic change of the appearance. Especially in a tiny room it’s a huge focal point.
Bonus: Get Some Air
Freshner or a Diffuser
You want to kill the smell of dirty clothes and old Chinese food take out. To keep your room smelling fresh all day invest in a plug-in air freshener or diffuser. I get that college gets the best of us and we don’t always have time to clean.
If you do not have time to clean your sheets you can get a can of Febreze and spray down your sheets. There are a variety of scents for each season! Plus who doesn’t want their room to smell good?
