Now that it's April it's time for spring cleaning! I love cleaning out my house and getting rid of things. Anyone else like that?! As I've been losing weight it has been especially important for me to clean out my closet and donate my clothes. Here are some tips that I have for wardrobe spring cleaning:

1. Rotate your hangers:

When you start out the season, rotate your hangers in the opposite direction. Once you have worn an item of clothing, rotate the hanger so it faces the right way. Then, at the end of the season donate all of the pieces that still have the hanger facing the opposite direction. If you didn't wear it all season long, then it's time to donate it!

2. Wash your clothes:

If your spring/summer clothes have been stored away, they will need to be washed and cared for! It takes some time but I make sure to wash everything before I hang it back up. The detergent that I use is all® free clear. I'm really allergic to detergents, perfumes, etc. and this is the only detergent that I'm able to use without having a reaction. All® free clear is the #1 recommended brand by Dermatologists, Allergists, and Pediatricians however it's important to note that all® free clear is not designed to treat or prevent allergies. It is hypoallergenic, proven to be gentle on skin, and delivers a powerful clean which is perfect for clothes that have been packed away for a while. I pick it up at Sam's Club and I buy the all® free clear Mighty Pacs®. This way you use the exact amount that you need, and you don't have to measure it out which I love. Just follow the directions to use the correct number of the all® free clear Mighty Pacs®. When washing clothes, I also make sure I follow the directions on the label so nothing gets damaged. This is especially important with delicate fabrics like kimonos!

3. Use bins:

Set up 3 bins when you're wardrobe spring cleaning. The first bin is for items that you know that you want to keep, the second bin is for pieces that you have decided to donate, and the last bin is for items that need some tailoring/mending. This will help you get on the right track!

  2. I started doing the same thing with my hangers and it's surprising how many items of clothes I don't wear. #client

  3. I use this detergent too. I love the free & clear products. I don't like heavily scented detergents, perfumes, etc. I recently cleaned out some things, but I'm sure I'll find even more when I switch out my closets. I love purging!

  4. I wish I could do the reverse hanger trick, but most of my clothes are folded in drawers, so no go. I love washing all of my spring clothes so that they're all clean and smell amazing!

  6. These are all such great tips! I've been in the midst of spring cleaning too, but I've since put that on hold until the weather warms up.
