June 2018 - Winter

The task for the month of June is to go through winter clothes and bedding.
"Clean, wax, impregnate, air and hang back into the wardrobes all cold weather or winter clothing. Air all bedding, blankets, mattresses, covers, etc."
I am hoping it will be an easy task, considering the bedroom has had a thorough clean through this spring and that the bed was in the living room for a week. 
Considering we also went through the walk in closet during the winter, where the other bedding is being stored, I want to think that there will not be much work for this task.
How much more airing could the bedding need?
Probably more than I ever give it, but possibly not as much as this task would have required a few years ago. 

These tasks used to be very hard work, but with every work-through, it becomes easier and easier.
This year, I have even had all my camping gear out which also doubles as guest bedding in our house.

Winter clothes, coats, gloves, hats and scarves and such, on the other hand, that must come out in the air and the sunshine. 
Since that could be done in an hour or at least during a day, should I possibly add another task for June?

  1. I've never aired bedding or winter clothing in my life. If something can go in the washing machine and dryer, it does. If it has to be drycleaned, it goes to the drycleaner.

    1. So much money and environmental effects to be saved by airing textiles (no washing liquid or dry-cleaning chemicals, no costs for electricity, dry-cleaning or transport to the cleaners), not to mention the 'wear and tear' that laundry causes, much more than the actual 'wearing'.)

    2. You're right, of course, but I do it anyway.
