Store Clothes In Your Closet, Not Dust
The accompanying resource points out that the average house accumulates over 40 lbs. of dust every year. Dust can be found anywhere in the home, but your closet is one place you definitely want to keep dust to a minimum. Closet dust can get into your clothes; then, you get into your clothes; and then dust mites and toxic chemicals might get into you. Not good.
Once you’ve decluttered the closet, you can reorganize the space to fight dust even more. For instance, if you live in a climate with changing seasons, storing out of season clothes in garment bags and airtight plastic totes can help prevent dust from infesting. Additionally, keep shoes off the floor with shoe racks, and put shirts in drawers or boxes rather than stacked on an open shelf.
Of course, no amount of reorganization or decluttering can deliver permanent freedom from dust. It’s extremely important to dust and clean closet surfaces thoroughly and regularly. Closets are easily overlooked in the cleaning routine; nevertheless, closet dust can still get on clothes and personal items. A clean closet is a major step forward toward a cleaner bill of health!
