2. Archive Out-Of-Season Clothes
With your bulky items now packed away, it’s time to tackle your clothing. Pull out all your winter jackets, coats and jumpers and give each piece a good inspection. Now is the perfect time to mend anything that needs it, donate clothes you no longer want and clean those items you plan to keep for next winter. Consider though, when packing away your kids clothes they will do a lot of growing in a twelve month period, so unless you plan to hand clothes onto a sibling, there’s no point in hanging onto your child’s entire winter wardrobe for next year.
The same goes for you! If there are items in your wardrobe you no longer wear, donate, sell or toss them away. To ensure your clothing lasts, its imperative you ward off pests and mould. Did you know dry cleaning your natural fibre clothing will kill moth larvae and adult months? Alternatively, if your not mad on dry cleaning, freezing your clothes will kill any pests the same way dry cleaning does (strange but true!).
As with your manchester, make sure your items are completely dried before storing away. In terms of storage, if you’re after a stackable solution, consider Howard’s durable Easi-Store Tubs with wheels and locking lids. Alternatively our airtight, watertight, reusable Space Bag vacuum bags will triple your storage space.
