Back to Campus Clean and Green Laundry Tips

Laundry Day on Campus can be clean AND green!
I was so spoiled! Either Nanny or my mother took care of my laundry even all the way through High School. When I arrived on campus at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, I was clueless on how to do my wash. 

New on campus, Riders by Lee are wrinkle resistant so no ironing!
I can remember the huge front loading washing machines in the dorm basement which were similar to those in my aunt's laundry room. After that it was all Greek to me. Sorting colors, temperature and fabric settings all were hit and miss the first month or so. Ironing was another issue so I'd highly recommend investing in some Riders by Lee Casual Slacks pictured above. On the Go comfort and breathable, these are wash and wear ready. 
At the very least, make sure your freshman leaves with these few tips on how to wash their clothes while keeping it totally clean, green and natural. They will thank you for it.

Making a Supreme Cup of Coffee from Beans
Summer is the time to experiment with cold cafe pressed coffee and iced coffee treats. Now you can still enjoy it hot but perhaps you'll want to add in some exotic, non-dairy creamers. I'm starting out with whole organic Laird's Peruvian Medium Roasted Coffee Beans, ground to perfection in my VitaMix Dry Grains Container.
