Good Question: Turning Over Your Closet

May 11, 2007 by Andrea

One of the most exciting parts of warmer weather is being able to trade in the wool and cordoroy for fun, breezy spring clothes. But it’s not always so easy. As a reader asked, “What do I need to do to put away my winter clothes properly?” Luckily, Bridgette Raes is here to help. She starts out by reminding us to appreciate our cold-weather clothes for the dreary days of winter that helped us survive. Keep in mind:

1 – Clean your clothes now or those stains will never come out!

2 – Avoid storing items in plastic bags or airtight containers, as they breed mold.

3 – Fold everything, as opposed to hanging it.

4 – Try to gather all of your hats, scarves, gloves, etc. and store them in one place, such as a lidded wicker basket.

5 – Consider lavender and cedar as alternatives to mothballs.
