Wish Your Dorm Would Clean Itself?
Now that mom isn’t around to clean up after you, it’s time pick someone new to do all your dirty work!
Here are some options for the students who are too busy to tidy up:
Laundry-free linens. Joan Ripple and Kirsten Lambert created a solution for those dirty bedsheets you haven’t washed all semester: Bedsox. Instead of washing these biodegradable sheets, you can just throw them in the compost. These sheets are only $25 a set. Check them out at beantownbedding.com They even sell pillowcases!
Messy dorms. If you’re too busy studying to clean your dorm (or too lazy) you can always pay other students to do it for you. Nate Andorsky and Mike Waterman started DC3 after being inspired by their own messy rooms. Since several dorms can be tidied up on a single trip, their cleaning crew can complete about 70 cleanings a month. This D.C.-based student cleaning service starts at $39 and offers different subscription plans.
Groceries. At the University of Texas you can order food and other basic necessities from MunchyMart.com with a delivery fee of $1.99. But here’s the fun part: you can order beer pong tables, kegs, and condoms. They even offer rentals on items such as poker sets and Nintendo64. Delivery runs until 3-4 am.
Clean laundry. If you’re too lazy to change your bedsheets, you are most likely also slacking on cleaning your clothes. At Hamilton College, HillFresh Laundry will do the cleaning for you. HillFresh offers different packages starting at $349 for an entire semester. They also offer dry cleaning for those days when you need to look presentable.
Move-out day. Most colleges charge students an hourly rate if they are not gone by the move-out deadline. Luckily, students at Cornell University have Big Red Shipping and Storage to help them out. This student-run business will help box up items in your rooms and put them in storage until you are ready to pick them up.
