Storing Clothes for Longevity


Trends may come and go, but the pieces in our wardrobe deserve the utmost care. Properly storing your clothes is not only a way to maintain their pristine condition but also a sustainable choice that prolongs their lifespan.


Here are some tried-and-true methods for storing clothes that will keep your favorite garments looking fresh and fabulous for years to come.







Rotate your Wardrobe


Give your clothes a breather by rotating your wardrobe seasonally. This not only ensures that all your clothes get some wear but also allows you to inspect items for any needed repairs or cleaning.













Avoid Overcrowding


Resist the urge to stuff your closet to the brim. Overcrowding can lead to wrinkles, misshapen garments, and increased wear and tear. Leave some space between items to allow for air circulation.










Mind the Moths


Protect your woolens from moths by using cedar blocks as natural repellants.



Before placing your clothes into storage, ensure they are clean. Stains left untreated can attract unwanted guests like moths.









Regular Checks and Care


Periodically check your stored clothes for any signs of damage, pests, or mildew. Taking proactive steps can prevent irreversible damage and ensure that your wardrobe stands the test of time.
