How To

Tips & Tricks for Seasonal Storage

Mar 26, 2021

The changing of seasons means an energizing and inspiring wardrobe changeover for you. Our handy how-tos will show you how to pack garments away for hibernation with preservation top of mind (no staining, yellowing, or damage here!).

YOUR TOOLKIT:

Stain Solution, Stain Brush, Scented Vinegar, Wool & Cashmere Shampoo or Signature Detergent (depending on fabric), Wool & Cashmere Spray, Lavender Pouch, Large Zip Laundry Bag, Hanging Storage Bag, Canvas Under Bed Storage Bag, All-Purpose Storage Bag, Cedar Scented Drawer Liners

STEP 1:
Reorganize

If you don't store items seasonally, you should do a thorough wardrobe “tune up” once or twice a year: Sift through your items, donate things you no longer wear, and reorganize your drawers and closets. Line drawers and shelves with Cedar Scented Drawer Liners to add a fresh scent (and liven things up with our classic black and white pattern!) to your space and garments.

STEP 2:
Just Wash It

If you’re questioning whether or not something should be washed before stowing for the season, we recommend always washing it. Here’s how:

Launder items with the appropriate Laundress detergent according to fabric type. Wash woolens with the Wool & Cashmere Shampoo, silks and delicates with Delicate Wash, or Signature Detergent for cotton, linens, and durable synthetics. Proper cleaning will prevent perfume, body products, body oil, food and dirt stains from setting into the fabric, making them difficult to remove post-storage. Do not store items that are starched.

STEP 3:
Store

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.

Where to Store:

Items should be stored in a space that’s clean, cool, dark and dry, ideally in a spare closet or bedroom.You should typically avoid attics or basements as these often humid and damp areas are breeding grounds for moth, mold, and mildew. Extreme temperatures will damage textiles and direct sunlight will fade and deteriorate fabrics as well.

Mold/Mildew Problems:

If you’ve experienced water damage or flooding from storms in your storage areas, you’ve probably run into some mold growth on your garments. With patience, mold and mildew removal on fabrics can be done…

For treating woolens, silk, or delicates apply Stain Solution to affected areas, and scrub gently with our Stain Brush before soaking in cool water with 1 cup of Scented Vinegar. Once satisfied, proceed with normal laundering.

Cotton and linens are the easiest to treat. Click here for our how to.

Silverfish, Moth, Bug Issues:

Always avoid moth balls, which are packed with harsh chemicals… not to mention the impossible to remove odor! We also do not recommend cedar wood blocks or chips; direct contact with textiles can transfer oil to fabrics. Instead, store items with a few Lavender Pouch or spritz with our cedar-scented Wool & Cashmere Spray. While we love the aroma of cedar, moths and critters do not!
