Taking Care of Your Wardrobe
Maintaining a good wardrobe means more than just buying the latest fashions. It also means more than just washing, drying, and ironing your clothes to keep them clean and tidy. The way that you store your clothing is important too. If you want to get the most out of your wardrobe, then you must do everything that you can to take care of the physical space that you store your clothes in.
In this article, we’ll discuss some of the ways that you can go about improving closet odor and protect your clothes.
What Can Cause Bad Odors In Your Wardrobe?
There are a number of ways that you could develop bad odors in your wardrobe. Firstly, the main cause of problems will be moisture. If you have a lot of humidity in your room, this could spread to your wardrobe. If this is allowed to sit in your closet too long, then it could cause mold. If mold is allowed into your wardrobe, it will not only cause a musty smell which will, in turn, cause your clothes to smell, but it will also spread and can seriously damage your clothes.
You should ensure that there is always dry air circulating through your closet. You can do this by using dehumidifiers or air conditioning.
How To Repel Moths
Another problem that you may face in your closet is moths. When moths are allowed to live inside your closet, then can eat away at your clothing and over time, cause it considerable damage.
One of the best ways of reducing the chances of moths taking up residency in your wardrobe is to use cedarwood products. This could include sprinkling cedarwood oils, or using the actual wood itself.
If you can find cedarwood coat hangers, these will be useful for hanging your clothes on as they not only keep your clothes nice and tidy, but they will also deter moths. Plastic hangers tend to attract dust, which will, in turn, attract moths.
Use High-Quality Clothes Hangers
Did you know that if you use low-quality hangers for your clothes, then it could cause your clothes to get pulls in the fabric or to become misshapen? Make sure that you make careful choices when it comes to deciding what type of hanger to use for your clothing. For instance, you should use a wooden hanger for shirts; however, this may not be ideal for other garments. A suit jacket will need a more rounded hanger as thinner hangers will stick out at the shoulder and will cause poke marks.
When it comes to hanging up items such as trousers and skirts, go for a straight and solid hanger that clamps onto the garment’s waist.
When hanging up smaller items such as ties and belts, you can do this using a multiple branch hanger. This will let you store all of your accessories neatly in a limited space, and will allow you easy access when you need them.
