Winter is coming and with it the rigors of the cold season are felt, forcing us to make the seasonal change of clothes in the closet. T shirt and relegate the colorful skirts of cotton that kept us company during the summer in a corner secondary, while sweaters and jackets padded back strongly to crowd hangers and shelves.

When we make a rotation of the clothes in the closet for the seasonal change is essential to consider two requirements. On the one hand, we need to store in a timely manner the summer dresses and spring, on the other we have to organize the leaders autumn and winter to be able to use for the season to come. For those who have a limited number of clothes proceedings seasonal rotation can be simple and require very little time, but for those who love to surround clothes might look a massive undertaking.


First, you need to have a clean surface support when temporarily store summer clothes, pending their final location. Man man who emptied drawers , weekly, cupboards and shelves, items of clothing can be laid on a table or on the bed, taking care to spread a cloth towel for hygiene purposes. As we move our clothes, sincerity that these are straight and clean, putting aside the clothes that stand out spots escaped the washing machine, tears, odors and wrinkles.

For the less experienced the selection process of the clothes may seem a waste of time, given that those same clothes will be used only after 6 months, but in reality, it is a task of vital importance. Imagine storing indoors a dress that emanates an unpleasant odor along with other clean clothes: the result will inevitably be that of spreading the bad smell, permeating the other leaders. Similarly, the months spent in boxes or bags sealed consolidate spots and wrinkles might otherwise easily solved.

Certain such as summer clothes can be stowed immediately and what should be washed, ironed and repaired, it is time to make another selection. The skimming this time will cover what clothes we really want to keep for the coming year and what leaders can sell or give away. In some cases the choice is obvious: overblown costumes, sizes too large or petty, odd socks and tights ripped hard pressed to find space in our closet. Other times, however, it is necessary to carefully evaluate the effective use of a garment.

Let us now carefully clean the closet, drawers and shelves of our furniture now emptied. Remove dust and any dirt with a damp cloth, wiping carefully and doing ventilate the furniture for at least half an hour. While waiting, we evaluate whether to replace the elements of perfume / protection customarily used (paper scented fragrances in bag, anti-moth), and even cleaning the containers that host the summer clothes.

We have shirts, T shirt, skirts and accessories court in the appropriate boxes, trying to place them wisely and without creases. On one side of the box insert a visible reminder to remind us what we put into it, or we mark the container with a colored if we decide to split up our summer clothes according to color tone. This procedure will allow us to save time when we will have to look for a leader in particular. Before closing the box and placing it on the shelves higher and less exploitable cabinet, under the bed, remember to enter a perfumed linen or a bouquet of lavender to repel moths.

As an alternative to the boxes we can use vacuum bags to keep away from moisture and pests summer clothes. We put our bags in clothing, trying to divide them wise not to make possible a frantic search in the future, and insert between the heads of any perfumed linen package. Finally, we aspire excess air hermetically closing the valve and denote the contents of the bag using a simple Post-it note.

Put your clothes longer and bulky, such as blouses, dresses or skirts to the knee to the ankle, it will be a bit more complex. To avoid creating nuisance of having to iron creases and the items again before wearing, the best solution is to use the enclosures in cellophane similar to those used in dyeing. Repaired moisture and insects, the clothes will be placed on the bar of our clothes-closet, obviously in a marginal position with respect to winter clothes.

Finally, once we have organized summer clothes, we will not have to do is place the clothing for the cold season . Before you place them in drawers and wardrobe according to our preferences, we perform a skimming, discarding those that have not been stored in optimal conditions, those to wash / iron and those who need to get some air before being worn. To organize the closet winter in a functional way we can build on different criteria, dividing the clothing for fabric, length and color or associating with each other if we are accustomed to show off as complete.
