Tidying and cleaning bedroom closets or wardrobes

Tidying up and cleaning bedroom closets and wardrobes is one of the basic steps in maintaining a calm and tidy environment. Start by emptying the wardrobe completely, removing all clothes, shoes and accessories. This will let you see clearly what you own. Next, thoroughly clean the closet or wardrobe. Wipe the inside with a damp cloth and dry thoroughly.

Once cleaned, take some time to select your clothes. Organise what you want to keep and put aside anything you no longer use or that is out of season. This will free up space in the closet or wardrobe.
When you put your clothes back in the wardrobe, organise them by function. Use hangers, boxes or drawers to keep everything tidy and within reach. Remember to perform regular cleaning and maintenance to keep order over time.

How to remove dust in closets and on wardrobes?

Removing dust from cupboards is an essential step for maintaining a clean and sanitary home. Dust accumulates quickly on furniture, including on wardrobes and in closets, causing health problems and creating a less welcoming environment. Here is how to do it effectively. First, empty the wardrobe or closet completely. This gives you access to all internal and external surfaces. Use a dry microfibre cloth or a clean rag to clean the outside surfaces of the wardrobe or closet; always start from top to bottom to catch any dust that falls.

To remove dust from interior surfaces, use a soft brush or a hoover with the corner cleaning attachment. Make sure you reach the deepest corners and crevices. If the closet or wardrobe has shelves, remove them and clean them separately. For deep cleaning, moisten the cloth or brush with water or a mild detergent, but be sure to dry all of the surfaces well after cleaning to avoid damage or mould.
