Storing Garments

SHORT-TERM STORING OF GARMENTS


Short term storage is for clothes that are worn frequently. Proper handling can extend the life of the apparel and reduce the number of needed launderings and dry cleanings. Make the best possible use of existing storage space by installing shelving and accessories to add more functionality to your storage areas.

  • Give garments a chance to air overnight before storing in a closet or drawer. This allows excess moisture trapped in the clothes a chance to evaporate and will also reduce wrinkling.
  • Try to allow all wearable items, including footwear, at least one day rest between wearings.
  • Use a brush to lightly whisk winter clothes and outerwear, especially woolen items, after each wearing and in between cleanings. This will help keep them fresher for a longer period of time.
  • Remove all jewelry, such as pins, from all clothing, and check all pockets before storing. Leaving items on the apparel or in pockets can create a drag on the garment and cause fabric distortion.
  • Always secure at least the top fastener on each garment to help maintain the item´s original shape and prevent further distortion.
  • After wearing clothes and before storing, determine the need for laundering or dry cleaning.
  • Remove all spots and stains and launder or dry clean as soon as possible. Delays can make stains more difficult to remove, or may even cause stains to become permanent.
  • Store frequently worn items in the most accessible places within the storage area.
  • To make accessorizing more convenient, store items such as jewelry, belts, and scarves in one place. Keep storage area away from heat and light.
  • Exposure to direct sunlight and artificial light can cause some dyes to fade. Make sure clothing is completely dry before storing. Moisture can cause mildew to form.
  • Clean out storage area at least once a year, and allow closets and drawers to air out.
