The monsoon season brings much-needed relief from the heat, but it also brings challenges for  keeping your clothes fresh and mould-free. Here are some tips to keep your wardrobe in good  condition during the monsoons: 

Washing and Drying: 

Wash promptly: Don’t leave damp or sweaty clothes in the hamper for long. Wash them as soon as  possible to prevent mildew growth and bad odour. 

Drying matters: Since sun-drying might be difficult, use a well-ventilated indoor space with a fan or  dehumidifier to dry your clothes completely. Avoid overcrowding the drying area, and flip the clothes  frequently for even drying. 

Ironing for moisture removal: Once your clothes are dry, ironing them on a low heat setting can help  remove any lingering moisture.  

Storage and Wardrobe Care: 

Storage solutions: Use breathable fabric storage bags for clothes you’re not wearing regularly.  

Moisture absorbers: Place moisture absorbers like silica packets or dehumidifier bags in your closet  to absorb excess moisture in the air.  

Freshness matters: Use natural moth repellents like neem leaves or sachets filled with cloves or  lavender to keep your clothes smelling fresh. 

Dehumidify your closet: If your wardrobe has a musty smell, consider using a dehumidifier to  remove excess moisture from the air. 

General Tips: 

Wash delicate fabrics carefully: For delicate fabrics that require dry cleaning, get them cleaned  professionally before storing them away for the season. 

Waterproof your shoes: Treat leather shoes with a waterproof spray to protect them from rain  damage. 

Wear appropriate fabrics: Opt for quick-drying fabrics like synthetics and moisture-wicking materials  during the monsoon. 

By following these helpful hints, you can safeguard your wardrobe against mould and dampness,  keeping your clothes in pristine condition throughout the monsoon.
