What’s the one place that people avoid cleaning in their home? Is your closet overflowing with clothes you haven’t worn for years? Let’s take a look at tips on how to clean out your closets.
According to an article at rd.com, “Cleaning the Closets”

Some people like to group items by sleeve length — and there are a few in the spring and summer seasons. I’ve even seen people use color-coded hangers but I don’t recommend it — too time consuming!’” To read the entire article click here.
