other trigger: they didn't suggest "natural" cleaning products or such. so if you and your student prefer that, then substitute in appropriate suggested products.

re: College Prep - dorm living

I am not surprised it is necessary. We (not this board per se, collective we) have raised a nation of children who think the world owes them everything, including maid service.

At least once each fall semester I was at college (over 25 years ago), the laundry room in our dorm basement would be flooded by a girl who had never touched a washing machine. I also had an acquaintance who would drive 2 hours one-way every weekend to take her laundry home. When I asked her "why don't you just do it here?", her answer was "I don't know how, and why should I when mom will do it for me?" It didn't seem to register that she was spending more on gas than she would on the washers and dryers.
