Living in a community can be hard and hygiene can always be an issue, especially if you’re someone who is very particular about your environment and wants their space to be clean at all times. When you move out of your home, it is normal to realize that your family took care of a large chunk of your chores and it can be tough managing and keeping everything clean at first. That is why it’s essential to keep some things on top of your fingertips. So let’s look at the top 5 hygiene tips we have for you so you can keep your environment neat and clean once you start living in a women’s hostel.
- Clean up after yourself
Don’t leave the cleaning part for later and do it as soon as you can. When using a washroom or a toilet, don’t let things stay as they are and think you’ll do it later. This is essential when you’re living in a women’s hostel because of the chances of catching an infection and not only does it get worse with time but also you’re way less likely to do it later on. Same goes for your bed; clean something as soon as you drop something so you don’t end up with stains which would be tough to clean later on.
Another one is for the kitchen and dishes. Make sure you clean the kitchen as well as the dishes once you’re done eating or cooking so your leftovers are not left open and can attract insects and bad odor.
- Organization is the key
There is a very fine line between messy and unhygienic and you can very quickly switch from one side to another once you start living alone in a women’s hostel for the first time. So once you start unpacking make sure you have a designated place for everything. Our top recommendation would be to go online and look for great organizing essentials like small baskets, drawers or dividers for your closets which can help you keep everything organized and prevent things from getting lost. With this tip not only will your place look a lot more organized but will also give you extra space once everything is in its designated place.
- Always have your essential toiletries
When it comes to hygiene it’s essential to keep your surroundings and yourself clean as well, so once you start packing for moving in a women’s hostel make sure you carry your essential toiletries like your toothbrush, shampoo, soap and avoid sharing them with anyone, especially razors. Furthermore, if your hostel has a shared washroom, you may consider getting a toilet spray or toilet wipes as well to make sure your washroom is always clean before using and reduce the risk of catching infections.
When it comes to your bed, make sure you carry your own bed cover and pillow covers. Because if you’re not using your own mattress then the chances are the mattress you’ll get in a women’s hostel would have been used by multiple people so a bed sheet before a bed cover is always a good idea and switching them once a week is how you can make sure you have a good sleep in a clean bed. Also, consider switching your pillow covers more than you change your sheets because they are in close contact with your face and changing them twice a week is advisable to avoid skin problems and acne.
- Keep the dust away
Once you start packing you might want to consider buying some separate mops and dusting accessories for your space once you move into a women’s hostel. If you don’t want to spend that extra money then a good call can be to use your old clothes and create small patches of dusting clothes from them because you’ll be surprised how quickly dust accumulates everywhere. Make sure you always keep your sleeping space dust free by dusting and washing your curtains from time to time as well so they don’t accumulate dust.
