Spring is finally here, which means it’s time to transition to your lighter clothing and store away your heavier clothes. Winter clothing is typically bulkier and harder to store than other seasonal clothing because it’s designed to keep you warm. If you want to store your winter clothing, but don’t know how, continue reading this blog post.
The first step in storing your winter clothing is washing or dry cleaning your clothing before storing it. If you don’t wash your clothing before storing it, you may attract bad smells or moths. Once storing your clothing, a scented moth repellent may help deter moths and keep your clothes smelling fresh for next year.
Next, get creative with how you store your clothes. Bulkier winter clothing can be hard to store, so some creativity will help you find the space for these larger items. Large plastic bins, garment bags, extra luggage, and sealed boxes are some excellent options for storing your winter clothing. However, do not use plastic bags because these bags do no allow for air circulation.
Did you know that your winter clothing can bleed color when in storage? To avoid the colors of your winter clothing from bleeding into one another, place white tissue paper between each piece. If you’d like extra protection, color code your clothing in storage to avoid mixing.
When you take your winter clothing to the dry cleaner before storing them, separate your delicates and your difficult to wash items. Delicate cashmere sweaters require a different type of cleaning than leather jackets. At Oak Neck Cleaners, we can care for either type of garment, and many, many more.
Finally, don’t forget about your accessories! Your winter boots, scarves, hats, and gloves need care too. At Oak Neck Cleaners, we can care for your Ugg boots, your leather gloves, your cashmere scarfs, and so on. Once you have these items properly washed, you can store them alongside your clothing in a cool and dark place.
