Summer & Winter Clothing Storage

When the cold fades away and the snow starts to melt, it is time to make preparations for hot weather. Its about that time to start packing away our winter clothing. Sweaters, gloves, coats, and hats normally get thrown in the closest drawer or closet without any regard, often resulting in horrible surprises next winter. Not everyone has the space to keep four seasons worth of clothing out all year. Small, or even no clothing storage space hinders your ability to have large amounts of clothing on hand. Properly storing off-season clothing not only frees up storage space, but it also gives you a renewed look when the change in weather comes. Remember that the cleaner our clothing is packed, the better your clothing will look when the seasons change again.
