While most of us know the term “spring cleaning”, people often forget that fall cleaning can actually be more important. Especially when it comes to your clothes. So to help you look your best during the cooler seasons check out these fall cleaning tips for keeping your clothes looking new.
Fall Cleaning Tips to Keep Your Clothes Looking New
Pack Away Your Summer Clothes
One of the easiest ways to keep your closets organized is by storing clothes you only wear seasonally. With fall approaching it’s time to put away those summer clothes, making sure that they are thoroughly cleaned before storing.
Unpack Your Fall Clothes
Once you’ve got your summer clothes ready to store it’s time to unpack and go through your fall clothes. As a bonus this is a great time to go through the clothes you have stored and decide whether to keep, donate, or trash them. If you haven’t worn it in more than 2 years it’s probably ok to move on from it.
Have Your Winter Clothes Cleaned and/or Mended
Once you’ve pulled out your cold weather clothes this is a great time to have them cleaned or mended based on need. Missing a button, have a random previously unnoticed stain, or have you lost a few pounds and need something taken in. Take advantage of the new season with your outfits looking their best.
Don’t Forget The Shoes
It’s time to dust off those boots and other cold weather shoes. After all, the best way to throw off a good looking outfit is with dirty shoes. Get them all shined up with an at home shoe shine kit or have your local dry cleaner get them looking like new for you.
