When I was a college student, I found myself doing laundry just about every week and yes, it was a pain in the butt. I had hated waking up early on Saturday morning to go down to the local laundry mat to do laundry with a few other college students. If you do laundry at your college, I always recommend you go early when it’s not crowded at all.
When I first started doing laundry, I would carry around a garbage bag filled with laundry but it didn’t make sense to have a bag with no air flow. I would throw my clean clothes back into the dirty clothes bag. When I saw other students carrying around mesh type bags, I decided to look for one myself and to my surprise, you can pick one up for as little as $10 and they hold up very well.
Here are a few laundry bags that you should check out when it comes to doing your laundry. I highly recommend you pick up one of these.
Honey-Can-Do LBG-01143 Nylon Laundry Bag 24 by 36, White - This white colored laundry bag is measured at 24 by 36 inches. It has premium tested material so that you’ll know that it will last through your whole college career. If that’s not enough, it’s backed by a lifetime limited warranty. Did I forget to tell you that this bag is less than $10?
Homz Laundry Carry Pack -This particular bag is different than most on the market because it carries a flap that’s great for holding detergent and other things you may need at the mat. I would also highly recommend that you bring your own supplies rather than buy them at the laundry mat because the mark up is just ridiculous. This Homz brand bag holds up to 2 large loads, it has an adjustable padded carry straps and can be bought for less than $15.
Whitney Design Pop-Up Hamper with Black Polyester Mesh Bag - If you don’t want to carry around a bag, you may want to look into this cool device. It acts as a hamper and a bag. When you’re not using it, you can simply fold it down so it takes up less space. I like this one because you can throw your dirty clothes into it as the week goes on. You would think this one would break the bank but once again, it will only set you back $15.
There are a lot of different laundry bags all shapes and sizes. Some have cool designs while other have pockets and other features. If none of these suit your taste, check out this page I created with over 600 laundry bags.
