Keeping your closet organized, let alone dust free can be a pain. Fortunately these easy tips will help keep dust off your clothes and keep your wardrobe and closet a bit more organized.
First, if you have the time to spare you can organize and dust your entire closet so you start fresh with a completely clean closet. Remove all the clothing in your closet including shoes and items on shelves and the floor. Dust everywhere in the closet and you’ll be ready to reorganize and start fresh.
Of course who really has the time to clean out their entire closet and reorganize it? Follow these steps and tips to keep dust off your clothes as you go along.
Clean the bottom:
Take out and organize bags, shoes, and boxes on the floor. Use a product such as the Swiffer duster to quickly pick up dust, hair, and dirt off the bottom of the closet and everything laying there. If you have a larger closet, vacuum the floor before replacing anything that you keep down there.
Next clean the top:
If you have shelves above your clothing racks, clean quickly by using a Swiffer duster to pick up dirt and dust. Refold and reorganize the shelves if you’d like.
Get the dust off your clothes:
Next remove each piece of clothing and use a lint roller on it to remove dust, lint, and fuzz. If you don’t have the time to go piece by piece, move on to the following tip.
Rotate and roll:
You might not have the time to spend right now going over every piece of clothing to remove dust. But by rotating your wardrobe, you can fit dust removal in with hanging your clothes back up after use. Or even get the lint roller step in when taking out something to wear.
Every time you remove or put back a piece of clothing, use a lint roller to remove dust and lint from the article of clothing. Keep a lint roller in your closet so you’ll have quick access to it daily. Over time you’ll have cleaned off every piece of clothing.
Have clothes you hardly wear?
By rotating your clothes simply by taking out and moving a piece of clothing to another spot in the closet you give yourself the chance to use the lint roller on it. Plus you’ll end up moving a seldom worn piece of clothing into the front of your closet making it likely you’ll wear it.
Cover it up:
Use long plastic bags such as clean trash bags or dry cleaner bags to keep special occasion clothes dust free.
Add a bit of freshness:
Keep your closet and the clothes inside smelling fresh by keeping some dryer sheets in the closet. Also spray some Febreze onto your wardrobe every once in a while to prevent that stale closet smell.
Follow these tips to keep dust off your clothing and out of your closet.
