With the start of the spring season, there is no better way to freshen up for warmer weather than spring cleaning. This week, we asked Ryerson students how they are spring cleaning their wardrobe and desks for a fresh new start.

“I don’t think I really do, but organically, I do. As soon as I need to make a shift in wardrobe, I will clean out my closet. My mom was born and raised in Egypt so I will take stuff from my closet I no longer wear and give it to her to give to people when she visits.”

“I’m minoring in fashion and I’m also a stylist so my closet is exploding with clothes all the time. A lot of the time – once a month – I’ll go through my closet and ask my friends if they want them, or donate them. Because I love fashion so much, I keep a lot and for the most part, I try to wear it. I like to repurpose things too.”

“[Spring cleaning] is an ongoing thing. It keeps me organized and relieves stress.”

“I’m not spring cleaning right now but maybe around May or June I will clean out my closet. Usually I will take my clothes to a thrift store.”

“It’s simple. I’ve got suitcases that I open for different seasons so this coat goes back very soon.”
