Hello Everyone,

Closets are dust reservoirs, full of tiny fibers from clothes,
towels and bedding. Every time you open the door, you whip up an invisible dust storm. You can’t prevent clothes from shedding fibers, but you can make closets easier to keep clean and vastly cut down on dust.

Box or bag items on shelves. Clear plastic containers are best, they lock fibers in and dust out and let you see what’s inside. When you dust, they’re easy to pull off the shelves and wipe clean.

Enclose the clothes you rarely wear. Those coats you wear
only in winter shed fibers year-round. Slip garment bags or
large garbage bags over them. They help to contain fibers
and keep the clothes themselves from becoming coated with dust.

Keep closet floors clear. If the floor is cluttered, chances
are you’ll just bypass it while vacuuming. But a wide-open
floor adds only a few seconds to the vacuuming chore. And a wire shelf lets you clear all those shoes off the floor without losing storage space.

to put it away now. If you want, plan to do it on Saturday
and it won’t take much time at all," Alkhas says.

If there are more than two people in your household, separate
the day’s clutter into assigned baskets for each family member
to put away daily or weekly.

With this routine, Alkas adds, "you’ll wake up to a living
room that’s decluttered and a kitchen that is tidy, and you
can start your day fresh."

Hint 2:

Ginger can be tricky to peel with all its bumps and irregularities. Rather than using a paring knife or vegetable
peeler, reach for the spoon. Scrape it against the skin and
it'll come right off, following every contour and minimizing
