Focus on Spring - Sort Your Wardrobe
With the first signs of spring comes our renewed vigour to spend time on making our homes as comfortable as we can. From shedding layers of winter clothing to a deep spring clean, there are many ways of bidding winter goodbye and saying hello to spring!
A wardrobe is a place that we may not dwell too long. When life is busy, we tend to throw things at hangars and messily fold stuff. That means we can’t find things when we need them or lose things.
Spring is the time to discover long-lost items from the back of your fitted, sliding door wardrobe and take back the space… but how?
Set the mood
Don’t underestimate the task of a good spring clean through the wardrobe. You need to approach it with determination and all the ‘tools’ you need. With bags to act as recycling receptacles, grit and determination, set the mood by listening to your favourite music, radio station, podcast etc.
Refreshments on stand-by
It’s going to be tough and thus, you need to make sure you have refreshments on standby to get you through what could be a mammoth spring cleaning task.
From tasty herbal teas to fruity, sparkling water, make sure you have treats on stand-by too.
Time to say goodbye…
We mentioned ‘tools’ for spring cleaning your wardrobe because the time has come to recycle clothes you no longer want, wear or need.
As well as charity bags that are sometimes left on your doorstep, you will need some vacuum bags for storing winter coats and jumpers. Once the clean items are placed in the bags, you suck the air out using your vacuum and hey presto, you have much smaller bags that are easy to store.
They are also moth-proof too so no discovering holes in your sweaters come winter.
Before we start the ‘keep, recycle’ process you need to prioritise your clothes into spring and summer, and autumn winter piles;
- Chunky knits – keep a few options for cooler spring days and summer evening but the rest can either be stored or recycled.
- Heavier PJs – if you like being toasty warm in winter, you may have a collection of cute brushed cotton PJs. Far too warm for spring and summer nights, put these in the store or recycle pile too.
- Winter coats – make sure they are clean (if not, book them in for a dry clean) and store them in the loft using either vacuum bags or storage trunk etc.
Keep, maybe, recycle
This is the mantra for what stays and what goes and what you really can’t make up your mind about. The ‘maybe’ pile should be the smallest and before you throw anything on this pile consider when was the last time you wore the item, and would that kind of event or situation come around again?
If you have a design for you walk-in or sliding wardrobe, you will have what you need to remain uber-organised. But if you haven’t you have two choices: struggle on or contact the team at Komandor Storage Solutions…
