Winter storage.

Take everything wintery out of every closet and drawer for cleaning. Dry cleaning or laundry removes soil, oil, perfumes and splashed stains. Then fold and store in plastic bins with heavier items on the bottom. If you’re planning to store long-term, use cotton, linen or a breathable fabric. Then store in a dry, cool place that’s not musty. Don’t forget those winter shoes – clean well, treat or polish and take them in for repairs before stuffing with cedar trees or crumpled newspaper to maintain shape.
