Closet Items to Wash Every Season
Don’t forget to wash what’s in your closets.
It’s easy to forget to care for items we keep in our closets, but things like jackets, bags & sports gear need regular washing to keep them looking good. CSC recommends washing these items with the change of every season, or more often as needed.
Jackets: be sure to check washing & drying instructions beforehand.
Sports Gear: shin guards, knee pads, compression sleeves & yoga mats
Backpacks & Duffel Bags: fabric & vinyl ones can be tossed in the washer with a regular load of similar colored laundry
Soft-Sided Lunch Bags & Boxes: have potential to be contaminated with bacteria from the foods inside and need to be washed regularly.
Reusable Grocery Bags: especially those used for produce & meats should be washed after every use.
