We’ll miss the lazy Summer days, but there’s something magical and exciting about the new beginnings that happen this time of year. This is especially true in the case of college students. There are new cities to explore, new campuses, teachers, friends, and routines! It’s a lot of change in a short time, but it’s oh-so-fun!

We wish everyone who’s heading off to school a year filled with lots of fun and success! One of the best ways to ensure it’s a great year is to be as prepared as possible! If you’re about to head off to college, this blog is for you! We’ve rounded up our must-have products to help you survive (and thrive) this semester! Read on to see what’s in our college survival kit!

Rinse College Survival Kit

  • Alcohol Based Hand Spray – We hate to have to say it, but we all know it’s true… going off to college means being around A LOT of germs. Between classes, sporting events, and extra curricular activities, you’re bound to be surrounded by a lot of people. One of the best ways to combat germs on-the-go is with our Alcohol Based Hand Sprays. These awesome sprays come in a variety of scents for every mood and personality! They are made with 75% alcohol to keep germs at bay, and also contain glycerin to help keep your skin from getting dried out. It’s the perfect combination! Throw one in your bookbag, purse, or car so that you can easily stay clean everywhere you go!

As the name suggests, this product is a super handy natural cleaner made from a blend of essential oils as well as witch hazel. It’s perfect for keeping in your dorm room to help clean your desk, doorknobs, and so much more!
