We remove winter things for storage

Start sorting

Gather things from the hallway and carry on the bed. Do not forget hats, scarves, mittens and gloves.

Divide them into three piles:

things that need to be dry cleaned-

things that need to be washed –

clothes that are no longer suitable for anything – they are in the trash.

(By the way, they released the hanger in the hallway – at the same time wipe it from dust.)

Laundry and dry cleaning

dry cleaningIt is clear that at the moment this is absolutely not a desire, but necessary. Deodorants, perfumes, sebum, sweat, food debris, etc. remain on any clothes. All this can not be seen at the moment, but after a few months, spots will appear, and it will be very difficult to remove them. Therefore, if you protect the clothes, you will have to wash and clean them. In the case of jackets and coats, pay special attention to collars and cuffs.

Woolen and knitwear

They are not stored in plastic bags, dry cleaning bags, or plastic containers. It is necessary that these things breathe; otherwise, a moldy, nasty smell awaits of winter things If you already got plastic containers for clothes, you can make several air holes in them. And if there are none at all, then the clothes can be folded into a clean cotton pillowcase to protect it from dust, and store piles on the upper shelves of the cabinets. Fold the most difficult things down, and those that are easier – up. It is better to generally separate clothes by type of fabric, and do not put thin blouses with woolen sweaters, otherwise they will take too much. By the way, do not be afraid to stack things vertically in containers and drawers, they are better stored and almost do not wrinkle, because the pressure on each item in this case is minimal.

cap storageFold the boxes and bags in a dark, not hot room, with good ventilation. You can use the space under the bed to store winter clothes.

Long clothes

If there is a place in the wardrobe, then woolen warm dresses, coats and raincoats do not need to be removed or folded at all. It is better to move them in one direction (or hang in one section) and leave them on hangers. Be afraid of dust – then use fabric bags, but not cellophane and not the film, which is covered with dry cleaning items.

clean winter thingsDo not forget to fasten all zippers, buttons and check pockets. To protect clothing from moths, put a sachet for clothing in your pockets. Making them painfully simple: take a piece of gauze, put on it your choice: bay leaf, pepper, rosemary, mint, lavender and just tie it on a knot.

If there is absolutely no space, then we do the same as with sweaters. We put them in boxes and remove winter things on the upper shelves or under the bed.
