How to keep your winter garments germ-free

Spread the love

Come winter, we are faced with the challenge of huge piles of clothes that just refuse to fit into assigned spaces in our wardrobes. While we look forward to the season to wear amazing jackets, sweaters, denim, etc this year we also have the additional consideration of keeping our winter wear disinfected. Most of the heavy garments we use are not of the ‘wash after every wear’ variety. The continuous tension of cleaning and disinfecting our surroundings and clothes is a serious and tedious task. Are there any easy hacks to manage and disinfect our winter garments? Yes, there are.

Purge – While we all have our routines of transitioning our wardrobes from summer clothes to winter clothes, we often forget to sift out the clothes we are done with. It is hard yes. One often feels ‘Maybe I’ll wear it with something else’, ‘Maybe I’ll use it at home’ et cetera, but do we really? Purging ALWAYS helps.

Separate fresh clothes from the ones that have been worn before – Having an assigned rack space or hanger space to hand jackets/sweaters that are used on the regular helps to separate them from the garments that are only used on occasion. Especially this year, creating this designated space frees up the mind from clothes and disinfection management worries. You know where each item belongs, and you don’t need to mess up the section of clothes not used often.

Keep a clothes spray handy – Every time we come home from outside, the handwashing ritual has become sacrosanct. We usually go straight into the shower and add the clothes we have been wearing to the ‘to be washed’ pile. This doesn’t work for winter clothes though does it? In the area designated for ‘already worn’ garments, keep a clothes disinfectant spray like the one from Savlon handy. This product doesn’t need any water for use, disinfects clothes in-between washes while also leaving a fresh smell behind.  And it is completely safe for all a wide variety of materials (like shirts, pants, jackets, kurtas, etc). Instant rescue.

Keep calm and disinfect.
