3 Spring Cleaning Tips: Get Your Wardrobe Ready for Warm Weather

As spring blooms, it's time to prepare your laundry for the warmer days ahead. Transitioning your wardrobe can feel overwhelming, but fear not! Here are some useful tips to help you get ready for the season ahead.


Whether it's cleaning your linen shirts or stowing away your wool winter items, this guide is here to ensure your laundry looks its best when the spring sunshine arrives.


1.  Wash/Freshen Up Clothes from Storage


With the warm weather fast approaching, it's time to prepare your spring wardrobe. Start by gathering all your warm weather items and take them to the laundromat. Give them a thorough wash or run them through a dry cycle to fluff and freshen up items that have been tucked away at the back of the closet for the past few months. Laundering your winter items will effectively remove any accumulated bacteria or germs, ensuring they're clean and ready to wear.


If you don't have access to a washing machine, the laundromat is an excellent option. With oversized washers and dryers available, you can easily tackle multiple loads and get this task done swiftly.


2.  Store Out-of-Season Clothing


 As temperatures climb, it's time to swap out your winter wardrobe for spring-appropriate attire. Simplify the transition by finding a secure spot to store your winter clothing until next year. Consider investing in plastic storage bins that can be tightly sealed and labeled for each season. This organization method keeps your closet tidy and safeguards your winter wear from dust and pests.


To further protect your clothing, opt for cedar-scented sachets or dryer sheets to add a pleasant aroma while deterring moths and other insects. Once you have your storage containers prepared, neatly fold your winter garments, and place them inside, ensuring a tight seal. This streamlined approach allows for seamless seasonal transitions, ensuring your winter wear is readily available when temperatures plummet once again.


3.  Donate or Sell Clothing You Don't Wear

The end of one season and the start of another is an ideal time to assess your wardrobe and decide which items to keep, donate, or sell. If you have clothing that no longer fits or that you no longer wear, consider giving them a new lease on life by donating or selling them.


Many local charities gladly accept gently used clothing and shoes, providing them for those in need. Additionally, online platforms such as eBay and Poshmark offer convenient avenues for listing items for sale and shipping them directly to buyers. By choosing to donate or sell your unwanted clothing, you're not only preventing them from ending up in landfills but also giving others the opportunity to enjoy them.


As a bonus, decluttering your wardrobe will free up space in your home, allowing you to get organized and potentially make room for new clothing items!
