Before You Pack Your Summer Clothes
Packing your summer clothes shouldn’t be just a matter of taking clothes out of a closet, tossing it into the containers you order and shipping them off. The change of seasons offers a great opportunity to organize your summer clothes. Go through all of your clothing and ask yourself how many times you wore them last summer. If the answer is “never” or “rarely,” you should consider donating the clothes to charity, Good Housekeeping suggests.
It’s also extremely important that you wash all of the clothing and items you store before you pack them away. This is because stains and sweat on your clothing can attract pests like moths and carpet beetles. Perspiration can also bring about mold or mildew.
Before You Store Clothing
Once it’s time to store the clothing, the Spruce offers some tips. Instead of folding clothing, they suggest rolling clothes so hard creases don’t form on them. It’s also a good idea to sort all of your clothing into categories rather than just put everything together without organization. Put all of your shirts in one container and pants in another. Skirts and blouses should get their own categories too as should any accessories. If you’re going to be hanging items, you should make a point of selecting strong, sturdy hangers. Skirts and pants should be hung by their waste bands to avoid creases and silk fabrics should be hung on padded hangers. If you’re going to use clothing storage bags, wash and dry the bags to avoid dust and mold.
