Spring is finally upon us (although we just had a major snowstorm in MI over the weekend!) and I get pretty excited for spring because it’s the time of the year when I really deep clean the house – and I’m talking everything! It’s important that, after months of bad weather, you clean up your home ready for the brighter months. An important job that most people don’t consider when spring cleaning is removing any fallen leaves from the garden and gutters of your home. This can be difficult to do alone, which is why Clean Pro Gutter Cleaning Toledo, or another company similar, could be called to help you do this. If these leaves are left in the gutters, they can cause significant problems. It’s an important task that needs to be considered when spring cleaning. However, the inside of your home is just as important. I also go through my makeup, the closets, the basement, you name it. The OCD clean freak in me can’t avoid it! But another reason why I’m a big fan of spring cleaning is I always have the worst seasonal allergies. They just come out of no where and I’ve taken a lot of steps to help calm them when spring rolls around, and that starts with my closet. My clothes are basically like my children so I like to keep my closet pristine, both to help my clothes last longer and to calm those nasty season allergy symptoms. Here’s how I’m spring cleaning using my best weapon, all® free clear detergent.
// Five Must Have Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Closet
//Step 1 – Clean your clothes with a hypoallergenic detergent
This is essential for me. Our clothes pick up so much dust, dirt and oils and I really rely on a good detergent that’s going to clean all of those allergens out. Right now I’m using a bottle of all® free clear detergent that I picked up at Sam’s Club over the weekend and it’s a big help for spring cleaning! It’s not intended to treat or prevent allergies, but it does clean out 99% of pesky allergens in my clothes. And it’s 100% free of dyes and perfumes so it won’t aggravate my sensitive skin. It’s really easy to follow the directions and I use just enough for one load.
//Step 2 – Put clothes away on plastic hangers
I have a few velvet hangers but those need to go because velvet attracts dust and allergens that you just washed away! Plastic hangers won’t collect any additional allergens on them, plus they’re cheaper to organize with.
//Step 3 – Put shoes under shelves
I don’t know about you but my shoes collect a lot of dirt! I have sets of shoe shelves lined up in the top of my closet and I store my shoes underneath them. I don’t put any out on the top shelf because then they’ll be in the open air to collect more dust and dirt.
//Step 4 – Keep the floor clear
I think we’re all guilty of this! If you can, store as little on the floor of your closet as you can so that you can easily vacuum and get rid of the allergens that settle in the carpet there. Every year it is also good to hire rug cleaning services to clean the carpets out, to get rid of the deep-rooted dust and allergens, but for general upkeep keeping them clear helps so much. At the least, I store extra accessories in shoes in covered boxes so I can easily move them out of the way to vacuum. If there are certain items you can’t move out of the way like bigger furniture, it may be worth investing in something like a commercial backpack vacuum so you can easily maneuver your vacuum around your home without having to move any furniture out of the way.
//Step 5 – Use garment and space saver bags
These are a lifesaver for me. Instead of having all of my special occasion gowns and out of season clothes sitting out and collecting dust, I prefer to store them in garment and space saver bags which works on both ends: it helps my clothes last longer and keeps them free from dust!
*Another quick tip: I like to reuse pretty shopping bags to store smaller items in. It’s cute, and keeps them hidden!
I hope you found some tips on how to spring clean your closet free of allergens. I found my bottle of all® free clear detergent in the laundry section at Sam’s Club for a very affordable price.
