If you didn’t clean all your winter gear in early spring before packing it away, now is the time to pull out the winter jackets, coats, scarves, hats, boots and gloves. While you’re at it, check your sports equipment like skates, snowboards, and skis for any needed repairs and cleaning so you’re ready to get outside and enjoy the snow and ice. Where to start?
Check gear over for stains and rips, read care labels, and sort into groups of: repairs needed, washable, dry-clean only or do not fit - donate. Children grow quickly and may need new garments and sports equipment.
Following the care label instructions is very important for maintaining the life and look of the garment or winter accessory.
Research proper care procedure before buying replacement winter jackets and coats, they are an investment and may have further costs if they need professional drycleaning.
The end of every season is a great time to go over outerwear, hats, boots and seasonal gear. Repair, clean or discard so they are ready when needed. A cool, dry, dark location is best for storage. Under bed bins, high shelves in closets, hanging garment bags, extra closets or large bins are also great for storing winter gear. However, do not over-pack items into containers and be sure everything is fully dried before storing.
It is also nice to pull out your boots and find them clean and polished.
Most sports gear is a large investment and, as such, you should ensure proper maintenance and storage of these items to get the longest lifespan possible.
Many manufacturer’s websites have care instructions and how they can be reached for more information.
