Garment care tips
It's Almost Spring!
Get a jump on the change of season and try a few of these good housekeeping tips:
- Inspect all the clothing in your closets and drawers.
- Remove everything that's been worn, even once; even for 5 minutes.
- Wash or dryclean these pieces to remove food, perfume and perspiration.
- Vacuum closets and drawers to remove moth sacks and dust mites.
Spring is also a good time to assess and edit. Remove anything you haven't worn for a year or more and anything that does not fit. Each garment you remove makes room for something new!
