Spring has sprung!
If you live on the East coast, you are slowly starting to pack away your winter clothing. (Thank goodness!) I know the last thing we want to do is think about next winter…but, if we want to have a great winter wardrobe we need to store our clothes properly. I have pasted some great advice below from RealSimple.com on how to best store your sweaters. I would only add that you need to shave your sweaters before storing them – my absolute favorite sweater shaver is only $5.99 and you can buy it at The Container Store, Kmart and even Target. It is the Evercare fabric shaver…Click here to buy it at Target.com!
Great Advice from RealSimple.com:
Storing sweaters in protective enclosures can help keep them from pilling (added bonus: keeping them out of the way). Before packing them away for the summer, have all the garments dry-cleaned or laundered. “Be sure to empty all pockets and have any stains or spills removed,” says Jonathan Scheer, president of J.Scheer and Company, a textile-preservation company. “This helps keep bugs at bay and prevents stains from permanently wrecking your favorite items.” When storing, group sweaters together by material, then fold neatly and place in garment boxes that are made of organic or breathable materials such as cotton muslin. Natural Canvas Boxes are a great option ($16 to $20, containerstore.com).
