Preparing your winter clothes for a “summer sleep”

Fortunately, winter is finally over and it’s about time the clear the closet from all your winter clothes and store them, so they can be safe until winter comes again. The biggest advantage of this is that you will free a lot of space for new spring and summer clothes.

So, the first you need to start with is to empty the closet. Take everything out, then wipe the surfaces and hoover the area.

Check which clothes you don’t wear any more and give them to some charity organisation. Or, if they’re fairly new and you’ve put them on just once or twice, you can give them to a friend. Oooor, if you have clothes that can’t be worn at all, you can bring them to some place where they can be recycled.

Make a thorough inspection of your clothes and separate the winter clothes. You can hang the spring and summer ones back in the closet.

Have a look at the winter clothes, go through all the piles and check if they’re any that need to be washed. Bring the coats to the dry cleaners. It is of prime importance to have all of your clothes cleaned and washed, so you can keep them safe from any bugs. When storing the clothes, put them in fabric bags. Don’t use plastic ones, because the clothes won’t be able to “breathe”. Or another option is to store them in boxes. And make sure all clothes are neatly folded.

Afterwards, you can place the boxes underneath your bed or in a dry place where there’s no damp or mold.

Taking the right care of your clothes is vital. Making sure they’re all clean and safely stored will prolong the life of the fabric. It is also healthy and hygienic and will preserve the good condition of the clothings.

Clean Unneeded Items

Keep the items you really love and care about. The rest – give to friends, use for charity purposes or just throw away. Smaller items remind us of different things, they are cute, nice and take space. Just throw away the unneeded items. Otherwise sooner or later your property will turn into a place filled with rubbish and everything, but not the correct things.

Disposal Day

Disposal Day

 

It is not Friday the 13th we’re talking about but a simple day for a cleaning arrangement. We are so enclose with the items in our property that we don’t see how gradually they take power over us and aggressively obsess not only our external but also our inner space. Having different and unused items all around the property makes us feel uncomfortable. Once we realize this we should immediately start the campaign ‘ Clean and dispose from a to z ‘. You should react immediately and don’t allow to lose the good intent. Of course it is even better to start the disposal campaign during the weekend when you have plenty of free time.

We can guarantee that at the end of the day your property will look like a magazine – as someone occupies your home and at the same time no one lives there. Do you know that according to Feng Shui accumulation of unnecessary and useless items brings negative energy which might be a reason for a bad mood, sleep, poor condition of your skin and hair ? Shortly this may affect your physical and mental health. So grab some bags for a separate collection of garbage and start disposing. If you have certain concerns if there’s something you would suggest to be needed in the next few years, just sort it and leave it in the closet or basement. But if in a few years you realize that the exact item had not beem used at all, then you can easy get  rid of it with a smile on your face.

Here is a simple schedule for a disposal process:

  1. Children toys and souvenirs from the near past inclusive porcelain figurines, small candles, picture frames without pictures. All these should be thrown away. There’s no need to keep them all. Of course they all remind you of good memories and have value. The best option is just to keep a few of them and get rid of the rest.
  2. Old video CD’s and audio tapes that most likely you’ll never watch again.
  3. Old clothes – yes we all know that it is almost impossible to throw out a prom dress, that pair of expensive jeans we bought with our first salary. We also know that fashion sooner or later repeats its trends. However it is time to face the true. Colours fade and the materials get old. Just keep most of your favourite clothes preferably with the classical shapes. Bags also change their style often.
  4. Old kitchen vessels inherited from your mother or grandmother are valuable only if their condition allows to use them and keep them out of the cupboards, otherwise there’s no reason to keep them hidden.
  5. Cooking spices, spaghetti are not needed, especially when the expire date has been reached months ago.
  6. Electronic devises – don’t forget to clean one of your favourite belongings – the computer.

If you have disposed 80 per cent of the unneeded, fighting successfully emotional memories then consider the Disposal Day mission as accomplished.

If you think that cleaning is an easy task then have you ever thought about the way it affects your health. Insect debris, dust and chemicals – all these things affect the body immediately or with the time. Your home environment may look completely safety, but if you look closer while cleaning you will find plenty of issues which may put your health under risk.

 

According to specialists sometimes the decision of the problem with the germs and dirt is not the main problem considering the number of toxic detergents we have in the property. Of course it is not possible to throw away everything you already have, however some products might be much more safety than others and even eco friedly. These are baking soda, vinegar and lemon juice.

 

Here are some healthy tips which may support the cleaning process

 

  1. Be organized

 

There’s no need to mop the floor if you remove afterwards the dust. If you aim to remove the germs and bacteria you should organize the cleaning process effectively. This means that you should clean following an exact plan, as this will assure the proper results. Clean only in one direction. For example clean the ceiling and continue with the walls, furniture and finish mopping the floor.

 

    1. Clean the items you never clean

 

Mattress works as a magnet for all kinds of germs and bacteria which may cause different allergies. This is why we recommend to wash its cover at least one or twice per month using how water ( at least 60 degrees ) and the mattress clean with a wet towel and hot water. Here are some places you have probably never cleaned:

 

The phone handset is one of the places full with bacteria, germs and viruses.

 

Garbage bins especially the one you have in the kitchen or bathroom. Just emptying the garbage bin does not mean that it has been cleaned. It is recommended to clean it regularly using a brush and a hot water.

 

Bathroom curtains are always wet as the moisture is everywhere in the property. Clean them often otherwise they will turn into a suitable place for mold.

 

Automatic dishwashers – if you look them closer you can notice at the edges mold and midew. The same refers for the fridge door.

 

Fireplace – a plugged chimney is not only unpleasant for the cleaning condition of our property, it is dangerous for our health.

 

  1. Clean with a woollen cloth

 

When wiping surfaces with a woollen cloth this creates a static electricity which attracts dust and dirt. For this purpose you can use old socks, sweater or a blanket.
