  1. Use clothing bins or containers

Instead of paper boxes, use clothing bins or containers for storing the clothes. Paper boxes are vulnerable to humidity and water. It is also necessary to leave some space for airflow in the containers. 

  1. Know which clothes to fold, which to - hang up, and how

Any item that loses its shape: knitwear, silk, etc - should be folded. Jackets and other outside wear can be hung up - but not on wire hangers. Use wooden or pillow hangers, so they won’t damage the fabric. 

 4. Store the clothes in a dark, cool, dry place.  

Always store the clothes in a dark, cool, dry area and keep them away from the humidity. This will keep them fresher for longer. A perfect area like that is the top drawer of the clothing cabinet.

We hope these tips will make getting ready for the new season easier. Have happy autumn!
