Autumn - it's time to clean summer things onstorage. How to do this not only quickly, but also correctly? What is needed to ensure that clothes and shoes without damage survived all the attacks of moths and humidity in the apartment? We tell in this article That's the middle of October. Autumn is in full swing, which means that a real coup is to take place in the closet: warm jackets - outward, light summer dresses - inside. To a year later, your favorite things still pleased you, and before that did not litter the apartment, we prepared a simple step-by-step instruction on how to store them. one.Tidy Things Up The very first thing you should do before stowing summer items on the back shelves is to tidy them up. Be sure to wash, dry well and iron all clothes, if there are difficult spots - remove them, sew on the missing buttons and make patches if necessary. As a result, things should be in such a condition that they can be put on immediately after taking them out of the closet. Even if you almost never put on some kind of blouse or skirt, in no case send it for long storage, "without cleaning its feathers." Our opinion:- At the first stage, be sure to decide whether you will continue to wear all the things. Most likely, there will be at least 2-3 items of clothing that do not suit you in size or simply do not like it anymore. To make it easier to disassemble summer clothes, sort them into three piles: leave, throw away, give to friends / children of friends. 2. Sort them The next step is sorting. If you do not have enough storage containers, it is best to purchase them in advance. Boxes, baskets, crates and, of course, plastic containers are fine. In order not to waste time looking for the right item of clothing next summer, it is better to sort things by type (skirts, jeans, T-shirts, swimwear, etc.), and sign opaque storage containers. It's also a good idea to make a paper list of what is where - this will also be very useful to you in a year, when the exact contents of the containers are forgotten. Our opinion - Some things (e.g. silktops, dresses, shirts and linen garments) need more careful packaging than just folding them in a box. In this case, get fabric covers for clothes - in them your favorite blouse is definitely not remembered. 3. Protect your clothes from moths Moths are the main enemy of any clothes, especially those that lie in the closet for months. To keep your summer clothes safe, place small sachets in the boxes. They not only give clothes a pleasant scent, but also protect against insects, including moths. It is best to purchase special sachets, for example with notes of cedar, which are known to repel moths well. 4.Organize storage wisely Well, now it's up to you to put all the washed, sorted and reliably protected things somewhere. There are a lot of options in this case: from an ordinary wardrobe and a mezzanine to drawers under the bed and grandmother's chest. The latter, by the way, along with a vintage suitcase, is a favorite storage place for designers. And it looks beautiful, and performs its functions perfectly. And if you have very little space in the room, the same chest or suitcase can serve as an excellent table or bedside table. Our opinion:- Recently we talked about where and how you can store things in a small bedroom. If there is not enough space there at all, you can send unnecessary things in the near future to the hallway or living room. And if this is not enough, read about where and how else you can store summer clothes. 5. Do not forget about shoes Of course, when packing summer clothes, you should not forget about shoes. She also needs special storage and careful preparation for wintering. summer shoes are better in separate sections, be they boxes or shelves in the closet. And before sending it for storage, be sure to clean it, treat it with special means and place crumpled newspapers inside - they will help the shoes not to lose their shape during the winter.
