Student Survival Guide: Laundry

As a new term begins we expose student’s interesting laundry habits


Did you know that more than a quarter of students in the UK have confessed to wearing clothes until they are dirty and smelly rather than washing regularly?

The  poll by Ariel among students who all live away from home, found that instead of wearing something once or twice before washing it they are wearing clothes until they walk to the wash.

Shockingly, 1 in 20 students admitted that they don’t do any laundry during term-time and leave it for mum to do when they return home!

If you have children who are headed for university in the autumn, get them used to following our checklist below so they feel confident when washing clothes and avoid ruining their favourite outfit. Just think of the time you’ll save in phone calls on how to do the washing.

  • Clear out those pockets We know they’ll be digging to the bottom of their pockets for change but make sure they take out tissues, receipts and club tickets or risk an entirely fluffy load.
  • Keep it zipped: Left undone, zips may snag those delicate lucky white shirts used solely for exams.
  • Drum ‘n’ Bass: Load the drum loosely, alternating big and small items, if you’re using liquid put the ball in the base of the drum.
  • In a spot of bother? No, not that sort of bother, we’re talking stains… Ariel Stain Remover Powder can be used in wash or Ariel Stain Remover Spray can help to pre-treat stains.
  • Don’t want pink pants?  Unless you actually want your whites turning pink then divide your washing into separate loads for whites, coloureds, and darks/blacks.

Students, do you have to take your laundry to a campus laundrette? I bought a box of Ariel 3in1 Pods for my son. Now, he can take his bag of washing with 1 Pod to the laundrette. No fiddling with detergent drawers, just throw everything in the washing machine - easy peasy!

Brilliant stain removal and fresh smell, but also try adding a cup of salt to a dark wash especially new denim or black clothing this will help retain the colour better, if you cant stretch to the new stain remover soda crystals will help keep your whites white but may need an extra rinse for those with sensitive skin
