I kept my woolens today

It is too hot here now, this year during winter also, the temperature at midnight never dropped below 20 degree Celsius. Though we had brought out our woolens sweaters, shawls, we used once or twice only. So today all were washed using a special mild liquid detergent, spanned dry using our Samsung washing machine, next hang on our roof top in sunlight for one hour to remove traces of moisture. They were packed in a polythene bag with special air tight clip and valve, this came with our vacuum cleaner. I put naphthalene balls inside to prevent growth of insects. The air was sucked out, the bag became so small, this I have kept in our metallic trunk now, to be opened next year only. So have you safe-kept your woolens? How you did it? What is lowest temperature there in winter and maximum temperature in summer? Don’t you feel the globe is getting warmer day by day? Is it not related to plant cutting? I think it is. Please respond and share your views. Kalyani ‘Namastey’. . God bless you to enjoy a lucky day ahead.

hi, you did a wonderful job, in summer only we should be prepared for the winter time , now in june we would start the rainy season so after that we get the winter.In summer only if we get ready the woolen clothes then they would be in good condition to wear at the time of need.

how cold does it get in your winter? i am here in canada and it gets hot here in our brief but intense summer. we get up to the high 20s and with the humidity, it often feels hotter than that, but in the winter, it gets well below freezing and in some areas the wind chill factor can get up to -35 (celcius) which is pretty darn cold. we have such extremes in temperature here where i am. as for off season stuff, i have a big chest that i put them in.

hi kal, those are special polythene bags you have there i guess. air sucked out hence no insects getting the chance to live inside unless the bag is ruptured. mine are kept now. its summer and the temperature could go up to as high as 40 degrees at noon. yes! the asphalt road i think becomes soggy. but then around mid afternoon and most of the nights, the rain falls like cat and dogs. and all the streets get flash floods. all the wools are kept now. inside the cabinet and just hanged. i dont enjoy naptha balls so i place a little wicker basket where i put sliced up fragrant soap to make it smell pleasant. have a nice day. ann

Here its bit of rainy season, i think now rainy season will start. Its better for me to wear jacket which is not woolen but it should be like a raincoat. Yesterday i went out on my bike in the morning but on that time it was sunny but while coming in the evening i got tired because of rain and i was full of wet. My mom was scolding me like anything. Then i realized that i should bring a raincoat as early as possible.

Over here,on the bank of yangtze River,recently air temperature hovers around 35 degrees centigrade.Some time ago,the weather was cold one minute and hot the next.According to weather forecast,It will be 20 degrees celsius day after tomorrow.I wonder if It has to do with freaks of weather.

Hello Kalyni jim I have kept the winter cloths safely before summer starts. In fact, it consumes much space so I am eagerly waiting to finish the winter for packing the same. Here we are using much winter cloths especially when kids are we need more. They have winter uniform in school. Now the temperature is scorching and just can’t imagine about the woolen cloths.
