Laundry is one of those life skills that all college students need to know. You no
longer have your parents there to do your laundry, and you’re left on your own to
figure it out for yourself for (probably) the first time ever.
While you probably don’t know exactly what you’re doing, laundry isn’t as forgiving
as you might think. Aside from the fact that you can ruin your clothes by making a
single mistake, such as throwing something in the dryer that shouldn’t be or mixing
