Appearance Plus Cleaners Offers Tips for Organizing an Unruly Closet
Cincinnati, OH – April 26, 2005 – Spring cleaning is an annual rite. But, for many of us it can also be a daunting task, particularly when it comes to cleaning out those closets in which we have filed away and forgotten accumulated items over the years. The following are a few simple steps from Appearance Plus Cleaners for cleaning the clutter out of your closets.
Take stock of what you have. Pull everything out and separate the contents into categories. If you know what is in your closet, you can then reconcile how the space is being used and how you would like to use it.
Prioritize. If you have not worn a piece of clothing or used an item in the last 12 months, donate it to any charitable organization that accepts used goods. This is also a good opportunity to see whether or not you need to replace or purchase anything new.
Be realistic. Do not justify keeping an item because you might use it “someday.” This is how pack rats develop their habits. Use this time to come to terms with what you think is most important.
Clean properly. The most common items that should be cleaned this spring are coats. Have a professional dry cleaner clean your coats before putting them away to prevent makeup, body oils and stains from ruining the fabric.
Invest. Quality organization bins, hangers and shelves are worth every penny. This includes replacing the poly-bags that are used to transport dry cleaned garments. Using the bags for storage can destroy clothes.
Host an exchange party. If there are items that you have trouble parting with, invite some friends over and exchange closet finds. Not only will the get-together be entertaining, you will know your buried treasures are going to a good home.
