The clothes you wear tell your personality, your fashion sense, your likes and dislikes. If clothes are important to you, you want to keep them fresh, clean and keep them as long as possible. Clothes storage is an important consideration when taking care of your clothes. Closets and dens are the preferred places to store unwanted items, but they're not always the best option. Let's take a look at 5 smart ideas for storing clothes at home.

Remember to store dark and dry clothes

When storing clothes, keeping your clothes dry is important because not only does it prolong the life of your clothes, but too much moisture promotes mold and mildew and can give your clothes an unpleasant musty smell. Keep it in a dark place to prevent fading. How do you dry your clothes? Location matters, so garages, unfinished basements, sheds, etc. are not ideal. Use chemical desiccants (such as calcium chloride or silica gel packs) in storage areas to absorb moisture. Silicone bags that absorb a lot of moisture can be reused. Place them on a foil-lined tray and bake at 300 degrees for a few minutes. Once they have cooled, they are ready to use. Or put the charcoal in a plastic-lined basket and replace it every two months. Running a fan on a regular basis in the storage area will disperse moisture and dry it out.

Let clothes breathe

Allows fabrics to breathe, especially natural materials such as cotton, linen, silk and wool. Storing clothes too tightly can prevent air circulation, which can lead to mold and mildew. For the same reason, storing clothes in plastic bags or airtight containers can damage them. Another method is to use rattan boxes to allow air to circulate. Do not use starch or cloth finishes on clothes you store.

Get creative with your clothing storage

If you live in a small space, or simply don't have enough space, there are a few tricks you can do to free up some extra space. On the one hand, portable hangers are inexpensive and can be assembled in minutes. Move your wardrobe now! Dividers, sticky wall hooks, stackable laundry baskets, luggage, wine racks and ladders. Bathroom hardware, shower hooks, PVC pipes, and even luggage pieces can provide additional storage without taking up extra space. For clothes, especially during the off-season, consider putting them in storage bins under or above the bed, or adding shelves to the top of an existing closet. You can also use hangar hacks to expand your closet space.

Clean your clothes pantry

Keeping your clothes clean is an important step throughout the year. A professional laundry service is by far the best option. Clothing should always be washed to remove dirt, sweat and grime before storage. After removing clothing from storage, have it washed by a professional laundromat to ensure it is clean, fresh and well ironed. It is also important to ensure that they are clean, fresh and well pressed.
