How to store your clothes

Everyone has favorite items in their wardrobe that they want to keep for a long time. However, improper storage can lead to shrinkage, loss of shape and color.

Probably everyone already knows that improper washing or drying can ruin your clothes. But sometimes, even if you follow all the rules, your clothes still get damaged and shrink. We told House Digest what non-obvious mistakes to avoid.

We usually store our off-season clothes in the attic, basement, or even just under the bed. However, these places may not have the best conditions, which can cause things to shrink and lose their good looks.

Wherever you store your clothes, the main thing to avoid is the following factors.

High temperature and humidity

The attic, basement, or poorly ventilated areas are usually too humid and hot to store clothes in. Such conditions can lead to shrinkage, mold, and unpleasant odors.

Sunlight

It's a bad idea to store your clothes in a place that gets direct sunlight. In addition to shrinking due to heat, the fabric can also fade.

Lack of space

Some people use vacuum bags to protect their clothes from moisture. While this is a good way to store clothes for short-term storage and saves a lot of space, it's not a good idea to leave them compressed for long periods of time.
