Spring Cleaning Your Closet

Sandy's Cleaners

 

With spring in full swing, we think it’s definitely time for some deep cleaning; and what better place to start than in your closet?! There’s no more need for heavy sweaters and coats, which means it’s time to bring out your linens, sundresses and t-shirts! Before you get started, we want to provide you with some great tips on how to get your closet in tip-top shape for summer.

With Charleston warm weather comes humidity, which can leave your clothes smelling musty, or worse, encourage mold growth. A quick, cheap, and easy fix for this is a chalk dehumidifier. By hanging a bundle of chalk in your closet, you can absorb extra moisture and keep your garments fresh and dry. Simply tie a bundle of chalk in a rubber band, cover it with a nice ribbon, and then hang it from a hook or hanger in your closet for freshness all summer long.

 Put thought and effort into your organization. Make sure that your clothing is stored nicely and is aesthetically appealing when you open your closet. If you store your clothing well, it will always look its best, thus encouraging you to wear more pieces, more often.

 With lighter fabrics, such as linens, becoming a staple in most people’s summer wardrobes, we often find that they easily slip off of hangers. A quick fix for this is to attach the same felt guides that you use to prevent scratches on wooden floors to your hangers, and they will slip no longer.

 In addition to linen being popular in the summer, many people tend to wear more delicate fabrics, such as silk. A great idea for storing these items is to line your drawers, shelves, or baskets with a velvet lined poster board. The velvet lining will give your clothes a nice plush support.

 Because spring brings about amazing smelling plants, why not bring that same smell to your closet? You can do this easily by making homemade sachets, filled with your favorite scents. This will not only bring a great smell to your closet and bedroom, but will also leave your clothes smelling just like spring.

 While you’re going through your closet, see if there are any pieces that you just don’t need - if you didn’t wear it last season, chances are it’s safe to get rid of it. This will help you create more space for neatly organizing your clothes. Make sure to be honest with yourself on this one. Really think about the clothes you wear and then decide what to get rid of.

 Now that you’re geared up with some tips for spring cleaning, put on some good music, open the shades, grab a friend and get to work! You’ll feel so much better after, you may even want to make this a seasonal tradition!
