Spring Is Here: Closet Cleaning Tips From Store Your Style

Attention: City Editor, Home/Garden Editor, Lifestyle Editor TORONTO, ONTARIO, NEWS RELEASE--(CCNMatthews - March 15, 2007) - Is your closet still overflowing with winter sweaters, wool suits and boots? With spring just around the corner, it is time to put away your fall-winter wardrobe and break out your spring-summer styles. Courtney Whiteside, president, STORE YOUR STYLE, offers some tips on how to de-clutter your closet:

* Take inventory of your spring/summer wardrobe - is everything in good condition or do you need to let go of some of your well-worn items for some new spring apparel?
* Separate by season: Don't mix your winter and summer clothes in one closet. If you don't have the storage space for this, look into a clothing storage service that can store your clothes off-site such as STORE YOUR STYLE
* Out with the old: Don't keep items of clothing because they "may come back into fashion." Some styles never come back into fashion, and if they do, it could take years. If you keep something, make sure the item of clothing is really worth it
* Swap your style: Organize a clothes swap - do you have some gems in your closet that you just don't wear anymore? Have some friends over for cocktails and swap clothing. You'll feel satisfied knowing that your favourite items have found a good home
* Pile it on: When sorting through your closet, divide clothes into 3 piles - daily use, storage and charity. Put your charity pile in a bag and donate it to a worthy cause. Consider a service such as STORE YOUR STYLE for your good, off-season clothing, shoes and bags. If you sign-up with STORE YOUR STYLE they will even take your old clothes to a charity for you
* Caring for your clothes: Get rid of your wire hangers. They can ruin your clothes and are not meant for long term storage. STORE YOUR STYLE recommends wooden hangers to provide top-of-the-line preservation for your garments

STORE YOUR STYLE comes to their customer's home with a rolling clothes rail, wooden hangers and breathable, gusseted garment bags. In addition, the service provides premium quality storage boxes made of breathable material. The storage boxes contain a selection of cedar and lavender preservatives to ensure the optimum protection of the clothes when they are in storage.

When the customer is ready, STORE YOUR STYLE transfers their clothes to a highly secure and climate-controlled studio. The clothes are individually recorded, logged into a database and then placed on custom-built storage racks.
Customers can choose from one of two STORE YOUR STYLE packages or can customize a package that fits their lifestyle. Customers can supplement their package by choosing from a wide array of additional services including, dry cleaning, shoe and clothing repairs.

STORE YOUR STYLE is Toronto's first clothing storage service designed for those living in urban spaces and debuted at the 2006 Toronto Condo Show. STORE YOUR STYLE recognizes that living in a home that is space constrained means making compromises in your lifestyle. You need no longer make that compromise with your closet space.
