Store Clothes In Your Closet, Not Dust
Household dust are tiny particles that can add up to big problems. Dust may look harmless, but look at it more closely and you are likely to see nasty components such as dust mites, dust mite excrement, pollen, toxic chemicals, and other materials that can cause discomfort, trigger allergies, or even cause or worsen serious illness.
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!
