Spring Clean Your Closet: How to Clean and Organise Your Wardrobe for the New Season

As the seasons change, so do our wardrobes. Spring brings with it a fresh start, making it the perfect time to refresh your closet and bid farewell to the heavy layers of winter. But where do you begin? In this comprehensive guide, we'll walk you through the process of spring cleaning your wardrobe, ensuring that you emerge with a refreshed and organised wardrobe ready for the warmer days ahead.

Spring Cleaning Checklist:


Start by emptying out your entire wardrobe. Sort through each item, keeping only those you love, wear regularly, and are in good condition. Donate or sell items that no longer serve you. (We see you Marie Kondo)


Dust off shelves, wipe down surfaces, and hoover or mop the floor of your wardrobe space. Wash any clothes as needed using a non-toxic laundry detergent formulated for the fabric of that item, paying special attention to delicate fabrics like silk or cashmere that may need their own delicates or cashmere detergent.

TIP: Remember to sort your clothes before washing them to avoid colour bleeding.


Invest in storage organisers such as baskets, shoe compartments and hangers to maximise space and keep your wardrobe tidy. Arrange clothing items by category (e.g., tops, bottoms, dresses) and colour for easy access.

Repair and Recycle

Take stock of any damaged or ill-fitting garments. Set aside time to mend tears, replace missing buttons, or alter pieces that need adjustments. For those items that don’t need to be washed, use a naturally scented fabric spray to refresh the fibres and bring the clothing back to life. A little TLC can extend the lifespan of your clothing.

Evaluate Accessories

Assess your accessory collection, including shoes and bags. Discard or donate items that are worn out or no longer align with your current style. Remember to clean up any footwear that is in good condition before donating. Use a probiotic-based eco-cleaner to remove any bacteria accumulated through a long storage period. For those accessories you’d like to keep, follow the same cleaning process and finish with a fabric protector to keep your items water-repellent.

Spring Wardrobe Essentials:

Lightweight Tops and T-shirts

Embrace lightweight fabrics like cotton and linen in vibrant hues or playful prints. Use fabric sprays to minimise over-washing your delicate clothing items which can lead to fabric deterioration.


Opt for tailored trousers, flowy skirts, and denim jeans in lighter washes for effortless spring styling. Care for your denim items with a laundry detergent and fabric mist specifically formulated to lock in the colour and shape of jeans and denim jackets.

Layering Pieces

Add versatility to your outfits with knitted cardigans, suede jackets, and overcoats that can be easily layered over spring staples. To keep your suede jacket water repellent, apply two layers of Liquiproof apparel protector using a soft hog hair brush and allow it to fully air dry.

Comfortable Footwear

Trade in your boots for sandals, sneakers, or flats to keep your feet cool and stylish during warmer days. Refresh your footwear with a natural freshener after each wear to keep bacteria eliminated throughout the warmer months.

    How to Spring Clean Your Wardrobe

    1. Assess Your Inventory

    Take stock of your current wardrobe, identifying items that are worn out, no longer fit, or are out of season.

    2. Set Aside Seasonal Items

    Pack away winter clothing items such as heavy coats, sweaters, and boots in storage containers using laundry or garment bags to make room for spring attire. Remember to give all items you are storing a quick spritz of our signature fabric mist to keep the fibres nourished.

    3. Rotate Your Wardrobe

    As you transition from winter to spring, carefully select pieces that can be layered or worn alone to create versatile outfits suitable for a range of temperatures.

    4. Refresh Your Storage

    Clean and declutter storage areas such as drawers, shelves, and hanging rails before reintroducing your spring wardrobe essentials. Spray all clothing items with a fabric spray to refresh their fragrance.

    TIP: Use our laundry detergent sheets and place one strip (half a sheet) inside drawers to keep your clothing smelling clean.

    5. Mix and Match

    Experiment with different combinations of clothing and accessories to breathe new life into your existing wardrobe. Don't be afraid to get creative!
