Summer has gone and if you haven’t done so already, storing clothes should be next on your ‘to-do’ list. For most of us, it is a seasonal chore but don’t be tempted to just shove everything into the cupboard. Wardrobe space is limited and the last thing anyone wants to do is waste time finding something to wear. Not only that, how often have you discovered a ruined top among the pile of clothes?
