As the seasons are changing, now is the time of year when I do some deep home and wardrobe cleaning and organizing. I'm making a point to be very intentional and thorough about it this round because I feel more established in my adult routines than I was last autumn, so I'm actually excited to get to work!
I do my deep seasonal cleaning in spring and fall, so no matter which hemisphere you live in, now is the time to get at it! Temperatures tend to be milder and, for many, the weather changes mean there needs to be a bit of a wardrobe shift. As I go through my techniques for home and wardrobe cleaning and organizing, I'm going to post about each step with practical advice and tutorials to help you along in your own seasonal cleaning.
Here are the things I'll be covering:
- Dignity in homemaking
- 7 tips for deep cleaning, rearranging, and freshening up a room
- Safe, homemade cleaners
- The Index Card System: my mother's tried & true technique of regularly maintaining a home
- Dividing a wardrobe into seasons and laundering tips
- Mending and repairing clothing
- A 1930s hanging storage bags tutorial
- Storing seasonal clothing properly
I'll be sprinkling each post with interesting info from vintage sources, personal thoughts about caring for a home, and some handy-dandy printable guides you can use for quick reference.
Are any of you starting seasonal cleaning or wardrobe organizing? Do you find it refreshing, a necessarily evil, or a bit of both?
