Best way to store your garments

Properly handling and storing garments between uses can extend their life and keep them looking their best. The following storage tips will help you when arranging the wardrobe next time.

* Traditional hangers with an enlarged, rounded, horizontal bar are appropriate for folded slacks or pants.

* Knitted garments should be folded and never hung. Hanging can cause the garment to stretch out of shape.

* Always use fabric support straps or loops, and when necessary sew additional straps to garments, to reduce stress. These straps help to distribute the garment weight and minimize the distortion of the garment in areas, such as the neckline.

* Hang slacks or pants from the cuff or hem, or fold over the rounded horizontal bar of a pant hanger. This type of hanger will prevent the pants from developing crease at the thigh.

* Avoid wire hangers, unless they are covered. Wire hangers can rust and stain fabric, and the metal edges can snag the fabric.

* Provide enough space between hanging garments to allow the garment to hang naturally, and air to flow around the garment. Allowing space also prevents wrinkles and garment distortion.

Folded or flat storage

Folded storage is used for items such as sweaters, stretchy clothing, or delicate and fragile apparel that cannot/should not be hung.

* Use white tissue paper between garment folds to prevent creasing. Do not fold the garments the same way each time, to help prevent permanent creasing.

*Roll items such as underwear and socks, rather than folding. This will minimize storage space and reduce wrinkling.

* Painted closet shelves, or drawer liners will help prevent garment snags and protect garments from the natural oils of unfinished wood.
