Do you wish your closet looked like this?

What’s that scent in the air? Flowers? That can only mean one thing… spring is right around the corner! If you are ready to tackle your spring cleaning, or at least start thinking about tackling it, you need to start with your closet. Decluttering your closet is never a fun task, but these tips from the residential cleaning experts at Misty Clean are sure to help!

Get Rid of Things That You Don’t Wear

Before you organize your closet, you need to determine exactly what belongs in your closet. Get rid of anything that doesn’t fit you anymore, that isn’t your style, or that you simply don’t find yourself wearing. Donating your extra clothes to charity is a great way to give back and also get a tax donation for your effort.

Purchase the Right Hangers

Did you know that there are special hangers designed for just about everything? There are hangers for pants, skirts, scarves, and other garments, that are designed to reduce the space your clothes take up. That way you can store four pairs of pants on a single hanger instead of four separate ones. You can also purchase cascading hangers that will do the same thing with other items of clothing, like dresses or tops.

Add a New Closet Rod

Do you still find yourself with plenty of clothes left? The solution might be adding a second closet rod to your closet so that you can hang two rows of clothes at a time instead of one. This solution is an especially popular way to tidy up clothes for people who mainly wear tops and bottoms and fewer long items like dresses.

Fold the Right Way

Did you know that there is an art to properly folding clothes? The KonMari method utilizes a very specific procedure for folding clothes so that they take up a small amount of space and won’t easily be knocked over and need new folding done.


Finally, think about what seasonal items you have in your closet. If you have a great deal of seasonal clothing, you should consider rotating it in and out of your closet when you are not wearing or using it.
