Cleaning the closets and dusting drawers will save everything and everyone who enjoy the space. Here are the steps to follow to save and clean your wardrobe.
First, Empty Your Wardrobe
First, set enough of your time aside to clear out a single closet or dresser. Next, start to empty your wardrobe completely, then organize items into piles. You have to decide what can be stored away or put in the back of your wardrobe until next season. You may also consider what you want to return to your cupboards or what you can give away or sell as pre-loved products. Make sure you already clean and repair items before packing them away because you may want to wear them again. Last, you can use closet organizers to showcase outfits and maximize the storage options of your wardrobe.
Focus To Clean The Dust
You may find your closet’s crannies and nooks with the dust that comes from the clothing fibers, upholstery, carpet, bags, shoes, and even skin cells. Since dust will give negative effects so it must be clean. Do not stop to clean only your closet but also clean your bedroom and all over the space especially when you have a fan or air vent in the bedroom with a closet. Start to clean the dust of cupboards and drawers from top to bottom. Then, you may use a vacuum for better and faster cleaning.
Check For Mold And Damage
When you got everything is clean, you may inspect your closets for mold and any damage like fixing any loose shelves and tightening screws and hinges. After that, when you got your space mold or mildew on a non-porous surface, you may clean or remove it with a wet cloth and bleach. Then, for a porous surface like wood, use straight white vinegar. In this case, bleach will only kill the mold spores on the surface meanwhile vinegar will penetrate to kill the mold and mildew at the root. So, it will prevent mold and mildew from re-growing.
Protect From Moths
When you detect moth damage in your room, freeze the affected clothes to kill the larvae. Then, store your clothes in moth-repellent bags when you are packing away for the season. Next, you can deter moths by using dried lavender bags and natural essential oils like thyme, clove bud, cedarwood balls, lemongrass, and hanging blocks.
