Spring is officially here. It is time to put away all those dark fall and winter clothes and unpack those bright, colorful and lightweight spring and summer wardrobe pieces. With that said, it’s time to bring all your winter wardrobe to the specialists here at Jimmy’s Cleaners & Alterations for cleaning before you tuck them away until fall and winter are upon us again. By cleaning all your clothes before storing them you help keep moths at bay and away from your cherished clothes. Once you have had all your garments cleaned by our professional team then it’s time to pack them away in a very dry place and keep them out of any direct heat or light.
Preparing for Spring
It only goes without saying that before you start unpacking the endless spring and summer garments you have, you should take ample time to clean out your closets and drawers so as to make room for the upcoming seasonal clothes. When spring cleaning your closets and drawers be certain to go through all your clothing pieces and determine which should be donated, which simply need to be thrown out, and which need to be professionally cleaned or even pressed before you put them away for a long time.
Keeping your closets and drawers clean and smelling fresh all year round will add both freshness and life to your wardrobe. Hanging dried sachets of lavender or even cedar in your closet and even in your dresser drawers will help to keep your garments smelling fresh and will also help to keep the moths away since lavender and cedar are both known to be moth repellants. Taking these extra little steps will ensure that your wardrobe always smells fresh and clean.
Once you have finished all your cleanup and preparation of your closet and drawers, and have provided elements that will contribute to the clean fresh smell of your clothes, then it is time to start unpacking and going through your spring and summer wardrobe. When unpacking your spring and summer wardrobe take a few moments to determine if there are any articles of clothing that you probably will not find yourself wearing any longer and put them together to donate to the Goodwill or perhaps donate to a local clothing and shoe drive in your community.
When unpacking, take time to put all your garments in their appropriate places, whether hanging in your closet or nicely tucked away in one of your drawers and remember to take advantage of the variety of scented items you can purchase to keep your clothes smelling crisp and fresh all spring and summer long.

If you experience a spill on your favorite piece of clothing be sure to get it down to our trusted cleaners soon as possible and whatever you do, don’t dry scrubbing the stain out first, this only makes it worse.
