What do you use your attic for? If I have to guess, I would most probably say, that you have that spacious room you turn out to store all the unnecessary stuff in, and I would be right. We all have the attics, or their perfect supplements the basements. Nothing fancy and nothing special can be found there – no furniture and no decorations, a few shelves only and things, too many things. If you listen to the modern interior designers, they will try to convince you that you don’t need such a room at all, that keeping clutter is one of the biggest mistakes of the people of our generation and for this reason psychologists call the modern people keepers, we don’t really like the idea of losing something or someone. However, I am sure that no matter what other people are telling you and what kind of advice they are giving you, you will still have an attic and it will be still full of belongings you rarely use and if we have, to be honest and concrete, we undoubtedly have to mention that this attic will be dusty and dirty, because as it is not one of the most visited room, you are cleaning it rarely, or more accurately, you are never cleaning it. And this, my dear friends, has to be changed because if you want to store something there efficiently, your habits should be a little bit different.

I won’t make you sell your skis, though you haven’t used them the last five winters, because there is a chance for you to go skiing right the next one, but I am sure that there are some things there that you haven’t used for ages and you don’t even remember them and know about their existence. And these things have to go away – give them to a friend or a family member, or for charity, recycle them if it is possible. Anything is indeed better than them staying totally forgotten and so long unused in your attic.
Roll up your sleeves after that and start cleaning properly. Remove all the dust first, which in this room is in too large amounts. Then clean well the floor and the shelves, use some disinfecting detergent which will kill the bacteria and prepare them for use. A really important task is the cobwebs removal – from every corner and from every place. They are almost everywhere and are too unpleasant as well. At the end get a microfiber cloth and go through the whole place one more time. If you don’t have one, however, the wet clout will be useful as well.
Then, when everything is fine and clean, you can start arranging your stuff – all the things you don’t have space to store at your home, but you need. Pack them well, because you won’t perform such a cleaning soon, then label them and put them on one of the clear shelves in the attic.
