Storing Garments

FOLDED OR FLAT STORAGE


Folded storage is used for items such as sweaters, knitwear, stretchy clothing, or delicate and fragile apparel that cannot/should not be hung.

  • Use white tissue paper between garment folds to prevent creasing. Do not fold the garments the same way each time, to help prevent permanent creasing.
  • Roll items such as underwear and socks, rather than folding. This will minimize storage space and reduce wrinkling.
  • Painted closet shelves, or drawer liners will help prevent garment snags and protect garments from the natural oils of unfinished wood.
  • Always stack folded garments with the heaviest on the bottom. Avoid stacking folded garments that have a tendency to crease.
  • Clean and air out the storage area at least once a year.
  • Potpourri and sachets can be used to provide a pleasant odor to a small storage area. However, avoid any direct contact between these materials and the stored garments.
