Storing clothes at the end of a season
The most important thing to do is to clean your clothes before storing them. There could be invisible residues of food, perspiration and things like pollen, various types of pollution from the atmosphere left in the clothes. These types of things will attract moths to the clothes whose larvae can eat at the fabric. Moths are also attracted to natural fibers such as wool, silk, etc., so we suggest that they be stored in mothproof bags. Also time and heat will set a stain. Just like an apple that turns brown over time once it is cut and exposed to the air so too stains can show up as once there has been time for oxidation to occur and the heat of a closet can accelerate this process.
Remove Our Biodegradable Bags Quickly
You want to protect your stored clothes from airborne dust and particulate, but NO, you do not want to use the plastic covers that drycleaners place over your garments. That plastic is strictly designed for short term, in transit protection! Long term use of these plastic covers will suffocate the garment, trapping harmful gases and moisture and very possibly causing staining, mildew or other mishaps. Always remove the plastic, and to protect your garments!
Storing Knits-Hang Up The Hanger
You shouldn’t hang knits, for prolonged periods of time. They may distort from sagging or the hanger will leave marks. If you really want to treat your knitted garments royally and properly, use tissue, gently fold them and store them flat! That’s the right way to do it.
Leaving clothes in the car
Don’t leave a pile of clothes in the back seat of your car, waiting until you have time to stop at the cleaner. Sunlight and heat in a closed car can cause your garments to fade and will ultimately weaken fabric fibers.
