Avoid the summertime closet cram

Summer is a great time to organize your closet. Move bulky items to the back so you can easily find your summer must-have fashions. But remember, color coordinating is key –dark items will lose dye naturally as they sit in your closet, and lighter items next to them end up with the stain. It is called “fume fading” and it is the culprit for light coats looking discolored when you take them out of the closet after summer storage. Put your clothes in color order, dark to light, in order to prevent them from fume fade damage, and use dry cleaning bags to cover dark items for added protection until it is time to wear them again.
