Here are a few easy ways to spring clean your closet.
Rotate your clothes
Move your heavy jackets, sweaters and heavy winter clothes to the back of your closet and pull out your spring and summer fashions. By having your warm weather clothes more accessible you are more likely to remember all of the fashions you have in your closet and save time and energy by keeping them up front so you don’t have to dig around your bulky winter gear.
Purge your old styles
Go through your entire wardrobe and pull out all of the items that have holes, stains, or that you haven’t worn since your last spring cleaning and toss them out. If some of your garments are still in good wearing condition you can give them to charity to add to your tax return for this year as well.
While pulling out your warm weather styles take any that are dusty, wrinkled or smell due to sitting in the back of your closet and wash or take them to the dry cleaners to be cleaned. Also take inventory on your shoes and scrub your dirty sneakers or polish your work shoes. Also don’t forget to do a final cleaning on your winter clothes before they head to the back of your closet.
