How to Store Your Winter Clothing


As we say so long to the cold weather and hello to spring, here are some great tips on how to properly and efficiently store your winter clothing.

How to properly store your winter clothing

1. Clean all your clothing

Properly clean all your clothes, including the ones that look clean. Give them another wash.

Use sealable plastic storage containers as opposed to cardboard boxes to store your winter clothing

2. Smart Storing

Use little pouches of lavender or cedar chips to stave off insects when storing winter clothes

3. Avoid Insects

4. Perfect packing and storage

When packing, put your heaviest clothing at the bottom of the container. If you store heavy items over lighter items, then the heavy items could crease or stretch out the lighter items. When storing, avoid wet or musty basements. Also avoid warm attics.

Never store clothing directly on the floor without protection. Place a plastic sheet on the ground. Store your clothing in clean, cool, dark and dry places like a spare bedroom closet, away from a window.
