At Blue Sky Cleaners, they understand how important spring cleaning and preparing for the summer months is. One way to begin is to clear out your winter wardrobe and store it properly. Here are three steps to help get you started.
The first step to putting away all those items you won't be using for another six months is to have them cleaned. This not only protects the fabric from deteriorating quickly, but also protects from any pests that may be looking for a snack. Pests such as moths or beetles will be attracted to organic stains on clothes. Check out Blue Sky’s sweater cleaning special only available during the spring!
When storing items, you can use a natural pest repellant like cedar to fight off unwanted guests. Cedar is a great deterrent because while it smells pleasant to our noses, moths and beetles hate it. If you’re using a cedar block, renewing the potency is as easy as giving it a quick sand, which will release more of the aroma. If you can’t smell the cedar, neither can the pests. When using a cedar block, be sure to wrap it in a light cloth, just in case there is any color exchange.
Finally it’s time for storage. Once your items are cleaned and ready to be stored, you have a few options. You could always hang your items back where they came from, but why not make some room for yourself? Store your items in boxes or bags to protect your clothes. If you use a natural repellent like cedar, the confined storage space also helps the effectiveness of the repellent.
