It's Spring!

Last month we covered some spring housekeeping tips. Now it's time to face some facts:

  • Plastic bags "suffocate" clothing and hold in moisture, so remove all bags for the season.
  • Daylight and incandescent light can fade clothing, so consider using opaque breathable storage bags to protect the shoulders from dust and fading.
  • Shoes need to breathe and be protected in order to last, so clean and polish before storing for the season.
  • Woolens need to be cleaned before storing to avoid stains and insect damage.
  • If you haven’t worn a garment for 12 months, either move it to a secondary closet or donate it!
