Turnout

 Be ruthless. When was the last time you wore it? Swap it with friends or sell on eBay. Remember 2 new things in = 2 old things out.

Hangers

 Get the right hangers for the job. With all the the same hangers, your wardrobe will look like a boutique, and if all the garments are level, they are a lot easier to see. Try the rubber covered non slip hanger!

Shoes and boots

Polish and clean all of your shoes and boots. Take them to the menders and put the boot trees, shoe trees and shoe puffs in to help keep their shape.

Fur

Put your furs in cotton garment bags and take them to a furrier for cold storage. This discourages bugs and prolongs the life of the fur. (If it’s been dead for more than 20 years take it to the furrier for re oiling and conditioning).

Vintage Repairs & Maintenance

 If any buttons have fallen off, zips have broken , hems have fallen down, or clothes have grown too big or too small take them to be altered and repaired. Don't leave anything in the wardrobe that needs something doing to it, chances are it will not be worn.
