Believe it or not, spring is here! Not spring-ready? Don’t sweat it. Here’s our official cheat sheet to help you say goodbye to winter, and hello to spring.
Transition your clothes! Clear the winter wear out of your closet and dresser, and refresh with spring appropriate pieces. A leaner wardrobe not only empowers you to live a tidier, happier life, but will also save you hours of time spent searching. And less time digging through your closet means more time enjoying the warmer weather!
Pro-tip: before packing away your winter clothes, clean them! Why? For starters, bugs are attracted to odors - even ones undetectable to us humans - and will find your dirty sweater irresistible. Those odors may also settle in over time, giving you an unpleasant surprise next fall when you pull that sweater out again. And pay special attention to stains - stains left on clothing can darken during storage and, like odors, attract bugs. Having your clothes washed, folded and dry-cleaned (especially important for winter coats) will ensure that your garments stay much safer and fresher for much longer.
