There’s a lot to consider when storing clothes, especially for a long period of time. This short guide will give you the information you need to make sure your clothes stay fresh and in great condition for when you take them back out of storage.

Make sure you clean and iron your clothes before placing them into storage

You also need to make sure they are completely dry before you pack them, which sounds obvious, but even the slightest bit of damp can ruin clothes. Make sure you prepare them at least a couple of days before you pack them. If you fail to clean them, even small stains can become permant and bacteria on the clothes will multiply and ruin them over time.

Decide what is most important, space or the quality of your clothes

If you use airtight bags or you vacuum pack, it will not allow the clothes to breathe and may cause damage to the fabric. Having said that, you will save a lot of space and this may be OK for a short store.

Store the clothes in wardrobe boxes and use cedar or moth balls

Metal hangers will run the risk of rusting, so it’s best to use plastic hangers. Some wardrobe boxes have in-build hanging racks, so you can stack them easily and still fit quite a few items in.

Don’t fold or roll the clothes for a long store

It is likely if you do not store them hanging you will struggle to get the items back into their original shape and some creases may never come out.

Use indoor storage to ensure a dry and cool environment

It’s important the environment you store your clothes in is dry, any damp will ruin them over time. Perfect Storage uses indoor storage units that will ensure your clothes are safely kept dry.

The day of moving out was quick and efficient and when we moved into the new house the crew could not have been more helpful. I would definitely recommend them.
