When season changes, we may need to take out the clothes that fit and put away the ones we don't wear. Everyone stores clothes in some way, but not everyone knows how to store clothes properly. In order to make sure your seasonal clothing always stay in good condition during off-season time, it's important to store it properly.
Clean Your Clothes for Storage
The first thing you need to do before storage is wash, dry and fold all clothes well. Once you won’t wear some clothes in a new season, they should be cleaned then can be stored. Otherwise the bacteria may reproduce constantly.
Use Right Storage Way
Different storage method is necessary when clothes are with different fabrics, we must consider many factors to make clothes keep in the original way it was.
Cotton fabric clothes must dry out before store in wardrobe or storage bag. The dark and light colors should be stored separately. You can also use some mothballs together with the clothes, but not let it direct contact with the fabric.
All kinds of woolen clothes are better to hang and store in the wardrobe. If you don’t have a good closet, you can also consider to use a box to store them. A important tip when put woollen clothes in box is make sure you can use clean paper to wrap it. When put into the box, the back of the clothes should be outward to prevent fading and weathering and wind marks.
It is better to put this kind of clothing flat, do not hanging in the closet for a long time, so as not to elongate because of overhanging. If it’s blended with natural fibers, you can also use a small amount of mothballs. But still need to avoid direct contact with clothing.
Leather garments are very dry and easy to crack, if it’s damp then not firm. So leather clothing need to prevent excessive drying, but also to prevent moisture, MAENER may recommend to hang them in closet too. They are not good to fold and put inside box because it’s easy to have creasing and crack finally.
For stuffs that are suitable to hang for storage, such as a coat, please do not forget to put the clothing in breathable place and make sure the clothing has enough room for air circulation.
For items that are not good to hang, such as sweaters, it’s better to store them in storage box with acid free tissue paper.
The most important thing is to make sure your storage area is clean, cool, dark, and dry to protect your clothing. The box and closet must be cleaned out before you put the clothing inside them, so when you next time get out the clothes, they will be in good shape and condition.
