We recommend storing items clean and folded. Delicate items and items prone to wrinkling are best stored folded with acid-free tissue. (Acid-free tissue is very important for long term storing but not as important for short term i.e., season to season).
Do not hang knits, silks, and synthetics as hanging can change the shapes of these items over time. Fur, leather, and outerwear are best stored hung - if these items are not stored properly, their natural oils (this is what gives these items their supple texture!) can dry out.
Pack clothes and textiles in breathable fabric, such as cotton or linen, with a zipper closure. The Large Zip Laundry Bag and Canvas Under Bed Storage Bag are designed for larger items such as sweaters and blankets, while the Hanging Storage Bag is ideal for outerwear, suits, and formal wear.
Never stow away items in plastic or cardboard. Plastic bins, cardboard, and dry cleaner bags may look tidy, but are not suitable for long term textile storage as they attract and encourage bugs and bug reproduction.
