The temperature is rising and it’s time to pack away the winter clothes and replace them in your wardrobe with spring and summer clothes.
The whole process is not only pleasant, but since you cannot avoid it, at least make sure it is done correctly and quickly.
The first step is to sort out the clothes that need washing or dry cleaning. There is no point in laying out your winter clothes on the bed and then finding that more than half of them need washing.
Some clothes need ironing and some don’t. For example, scarves, scarves or other winter accessories can be stored simply by folding them without bothering to iron them.
In general, fold anything that may not lose its shape when hung, and hang anything that will wrinkle when folded. If your closet space allows, hang clothes like down coats and pleated skirts. Otherwise, fold them, but do not put them in vacuum bags and do not overfill the special plastic bags for storage.
Whether you’re hanging clothes or placing them in boxes and bags, make sure you button and zip up so they keep their shape and prevent creasing.
You fold the sweaters and store them in special bags, taking out as much air as possible. You may need to apply some anti-rust to get them in top condition next winter.
Also, put the heavy clothes at the bottom of the wardrobe and the light ones at the top so they don’t wrinkle. also to smell niceplace in lavender tulle which you can renew from time to time.
