More Useful Tips For Clothes Storage
This post is a continuation of the previous post, which focused on things you should consider when storing items of clothing (or other fabric), so that they can remain in a good condition when you are ready to retrieve them. Here are some other great tips that can help you with your clothes storage.
- Ensure that the areas you have designated to store your clothing and garments, are dark and clean. If there is too much light in the area, it may fade the colors and attract insects as well.
- Make sure that your clothes are not exposed to extreme temperatures. Never store your clothes in a hot attic or in a cold basement, because they will get damaged.
- Always store your natural fiber garments, like cotton, silk, linen and wool, in areas which are well-ventilated.
- Place your clothes in the dryer, on the fluff or air dry cycle, to get rid of wrinkles when they come out of storage.
- Always put your mothballs in an old sock or sack, so that they don’t make direct contact with your clothing while in storage.
- For moth crystals, you can stick them onto the back of ducking tape and hang them up in the storage area for your clothing.
