College is such a new adventure for every student. For some, they are having to maintain their own space and do their own laundry for the first time in their life. YOU know how important it is to clean your home and body without toxic chemicals, but have you communicated that to them? Let’s look at some ways that Norwex can be a great addition to a going away kit for your college student.
I have written extensively on the body cloth here but I truly believe this is an essential product for every person, especially a young college student who doesn’t need either the toxic chemicals that are in many body products or the cost associated with their frequent replacement. Start them off with a body pack and it will last them through at least half of their college career.
Whether their dorm is co-ed or all female, your female college student will love the Wrap It Up Set with Norwex’s super absorbent microfiber. The Hair Wrap reduces drying time by 75% (oversleep anyone?) and contains our patented BacLock so it should stay fresh for use after use if hung to dry properly. The Spa Wrap is extremely soft and will provide the coverage they need as they move about their shared spaces after their shower.
No Norwex list is complete without the EnviroCloth. This cloth is also called E for Everything for a reason. They can clean every surface in their dorm room with it, including doorknobs and light switches, which will come in very handy in cold & flu season!
I’m not sure I want to even imagine what smells are happening up in the dorms. The powerful enzyme-based Odour Eliminator is perfect for use in bathrooms, kitchens, garbage cans/bins, lockers, carpets, bedding, and even their laundry!
Maybe for the first time ever your college student is going to be responsible for their own laundry. Start them off with a detergent that contains no fillers (clogs your clothing fibers and attracts dirt faster) and no toxic chemicals. Good for them and good for the environment. One bag should last them for the whole semester and maybe even the whole year at 100 loads per bag. You use between 1/2 and 1 teaspoon per load which saves a lot of money over detergent that requires an entire large scoop!
Those are my five suggestions. Put them in a basket, tie a ribbon, and wish them well for their new adventure!
