Clean clothes are a must. Even if your
clothes aren’t dirty or stained, do the sniff
test. Clothes hanging too long in the closet
may take on a musty smell. Even the jacket
you wore yesterday may have perfume
scents or kitchen odors.
Neatness counts. Your clothes may not
be new, but if you are neat and orga-

unimportant. It’s how well-kept and shined
they are that matters.
