Store Clothes In Your Closet, Not Dust

Household dust may look harmless, but look at it more closely and you are likely to see nasty components such as dust mites, dust mite excrement, pollen, toxic chemicals, and other materials that can cause discomfort, trigger allergies, or even cause or worsen serious illness.

Dust can be found anywhere in the home, but your closet is one place you definitely want to keep dust to a minimum. Closet dust can get into your clothes; then, you get into your clothes; and then dust mites and toxic chemicals might get into you.

No matter what kind of floor you have, closet dust can be minimized if you eliminate all the clutter. Do you really need those college t-shirts frayed around the neckline, or the cowboy boots you used to wear line dancing, or the Trivial Pursuit game you haven’t touched since you got it for Christmas however many years ago? Less surface area gives dust less space on which to settle and fewer crevasses in which to hide. Plus, if you make a donation of unneeded items that still have value, you’ll be helping people who do need them.

No amount of reorganization or decluttering creates a permanent dust free area. However, it is very important to dust and clean closet areas regularly.
