Pack away the stuff you rarely use
We all have those clothes that we save for special occasions, whether our adult Halloween costumes or special gala dresses that are only used for events like galas or weddings, instead of leaving them in the most convenient area where you can grab them easily, consider storing them away instead.
However, be careful how you put away clothes you want to keep in good condition. You want to be sure that they’re usable when the time comes.
Before putting away your cocktail dresses, ensure they’re washed or dry-cleaned beforehand. It’s easy to miss a wine spill or food on your outfit, but when it comes time to take that dress out of your stored clothing, it won’t be as good as new. Make sure to store your clothes in a dry place and keep a dryer sheet in your airtight clothing container.
Keep shoes away from hanging clothes
When it comes to closets, it’s easy to put your shoes under your hanging clothes, especially if that’s where you have space for them. However, as clean a person as you may be, shoes simply don’t smell all that great, and you definitely don’t want that smell to transfer to your clothes.
Whenever you can, make sure to set up your shoe area far from the clothes you have hanging up so that you can always keep your clothes feeling as fresh as can be.
Hang your most used clothes
If you want to keep your most used items wearable as soon as you want to use them, hanging them up is a good idea. While you may like folding your clothes and storing them in dressers, once you put on outfits with creases and folds, you may not love it as much.
While you’ll want to buy plenty of hangers and keep things organized, it will be worth it when your clothes are always easy to put on without worrying about ironing them or dealing with lines. If you’re especially into staying organized, hang your clothes according to occasion or color, making it easier to find your outfits in a hurry.
Use odor-reducing products
From mold to mildew and musty smells, if you’ve ever had someone walk by and found yourself catching your breath in disgust, well, chances are that they could learn how to care for their clothes in a better way.
Depending on where you live and your closet area, you may need to consider using odor-fighting products to help combat the smells that can come from keeping your clothes and a humid area.
Keep your closet clean
We worry about keeping our clothes clean, but we may ignore the importance of keeping our closet clean. While your clothes’ cleanliness should definitely be a priority, if you’re not cleaning out your closet every now and then, you may be minimizing your clothes-washing routines.
From vacuuming carpets in your closet to staying on top of dusting, you want to have a routine for keeping your closet clean.
From shoe racks to hanger collections and jewelry setups, keeping your closet organized so that you’re always ready to put together ready-to-go outfits makes life that much easier. Not only that, but an organized closet ensures your outfits stay clean and organized and much more durable than they would be otherwise.
