Make sure clothes are clean before storing
Keeping them clean will keep tiny, clothes-munching creatures away and make sure they’re ready be worn once the cold weather has passed.
Fold, don’t hang
Try to fold as many items as possible. Storing clothes on hangers for an extended period can stretch them out so they lose their shape.
Add a cedar block
Throw a few cedar blocks in with your stored clothing items. They are good pest-repellents and not as strong-smelling as moth balls tend to be.
Use the right storage container
Don’t store clothes in plastic bags – as mould and mildew can form if moisture is present. Rigid plastic storage containers and cardboard boxes can be but used, but one of the best storage options is an empty suitcase that has been thoroughly cleaned. Use acid-free tissue paper if you want to wrap your clothing within the container.
