Dorm Room Essentials
For many, back to school means back to the college dorm room. It’s a home away from home, so let’s make it feel and look like one! I’ve got some ideas to help you keep it comfy, clean and stylish.
First and foremost, let’s talk about school spirit. The Northwest seriously has the best college gear to show your school pride this year! They are a leader in the home textile industry and the Number 1 blanket and throw manufacturer in the United States.
There are a ton of fun ways The Northwest can help you deck out your dorm room with everything from blankets and bedding to shower gear and even flameless candles. And The Northwest has exclusive rights to manufacture and distribute some seriously cool items in stores off campus for the Texas Longhorns!
Their blankets and throws are a definite must-have. They’re durable, but they’re also so soft and comfy. The colors and team logos look awesome! I also love their pillows and rugs too!
And it doesn’t stop at college gear. The Northwest also offers cool items to show your support for professional sports teams: NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, MLS. That’s along with entertainment brands like DC Comics, Disney, Marvel, and DreamWorks.
Keep it Clean
Now that the dorm room is decked out, let’s talk about keeping it clean. Dirt Devil has all the answers when it comes to heading back to college and doing it in style! I love their new colorful line of stick and hand vacuums. These are perfect for any college students trying to keep their places and their gadgets looking fresh.
These are a light blue and teal option, but they come in a wide range of cool new colors for matching things up with your décor. There’s also Purple, Red, and Navy!
These are very affordable and range from $19.99-$39.99. There are also different vacs for different space and cleaning needs. For example, the cordless hand vac is great for quick pick-ups and hard to reach places, while the stick vacs are great for small spaces, carpet, hard floors and under furniture.
The QuickFlip crevice tool flips out for the hard-to-reach crumbs and it stays attached to the unit too so losing any tools won’t be an issue. With multiple features all in one, the stick vacs are a great product that addresses all of your cleaning needs. They work on hard floors and carpet.
And Dirt Devil is also offering several creative solutions on ways to spice up your college space. Check out the tips for decorating on a budget and adding color to your space on DirtDevilUniversity.com in the ‘Your Dorm. Your Style' section.
You know you can’t head off for college with all of your essential tech. Adding a good set of speakers can turn the computer or tablet you have to have for school into a true entertainment destination for those study breaks. My favorite are these Z333 Multimedia Speakers from Logitech.
They deliver great sound no matter what you're listening to. Perfect for watching movies, your favorite music playlists - whatever your needs! Pair it with the Logitech Bluetooth Audio Adapter, and stream wirelessly from your smartphone or tablet.
Now the college bound crowd is set up and ready to rock this new semester - in style!
