When cleaning the closet, first empty the space. Remove all clothes, footwear and any other items in the wardrobe. Sort your clothing such as trousers, shirts, suits and others. Take out unnecessary items like foodstuff and stationery that are not suitable for a wardrobe.

Some clothing which are not needed or do not fit anymore should be separated for donation. Now start folding clothes and use hangers for those that need to be hanged. Try using same style and colour of hangers to give an impression of organisation and cleanliness. Always remember to completely avoid mixing water and wood.
