Spring Cleaning

 With warmer months just around the corner, it's time to think about spring cleaning. Whether you want to clear some of the winter clutter or just feel like a change in scenery, spring cleaning can make it happen. Now is the perfect time to clean out the garage, linen cupboard and wardrobes.  As we all know, this can take a lot of work but a few simple tips can make your spring cleaning experience a breeze.  Every Thursday through September I'll post a Spring Cleaning tip to help you get on top of this seasonal ritual.

Spring Cleaning Series Tip No. 1

If you are storing away your winter clothes, consider using plastic storage containers that feature snap-on lids. These can be found in at most department and hardware stores and even some supermarkets and are very inexpensive. Use a different container for each type of clothing i.e. one for long-sleeve t-shirts, one for cardigans, one for jumpers, one for winter trousers and so on. Label each container clearly so you can easily find a garment if you need it before next winter. Storage containers are very important to keeping your clothes dust and discoloration free, which may otherwise be a problem if they are left hanging in the wardrobe from one season to the next.  If possible choose containers that stack for ease of storage. See the June 21 2005 newsletter for more ideas.
