Laundry Care Package 1

Do Your Laundry or Die Alone by Becky Blades is the most adorable graduation gift book I have ever seen. The advice is written in short, numbered paragraphs in a fun tone – something a college bound 18 year old might actually read.

Items to add to your Laundry Care Package:

Roll of quarters: Many dorms now offer the kids free access to washers and dryers, so they may not need the rolls of quarters anymore, but they always like money and gift cards.

Dryer sheets

Laundry Basket: Putting all of the supplies in a laundry basket will up the gift even more. Tie the “Loads of Fun” gift tag to the basket. You can use larger quantities of detergent and other supplies with a basket.

Steamer: Our entire family is in LOVE with our Rowenta steamer. It is so much easier to steam clothes rather than haul out the ironing board and iron.

Portable clothes line
