Cold weather is officially here and now is the time to pull your winter clothes out of storage and to the forefront of your closet. Here are some tips to keep in mind when your winter clothes are coming out of storage.
If you did not have your clothing dry cleaned before storing them, a spill could have occurred that you just noticed. It’s important to address stains immediately because they have had time to oxidize. Try placing you garment it in the wash. Before moving it to the dryer double check to make sure the stain is removed. If the stain remains, waste no more time and bring it in to your Greenville Dry Cleaner.
No one wants to reach for their favorite sweater to be greeted by a musty smell. This can be a sign of mold or mildew, and can happen if you store the clothes while they are still damp or in a damp area. Simply running your clothes through the wash can help remove the smells. However, if there is still signs of mold make sure to bring it to a professional.
Moths can be pesky insects eat holes in your clothes. You may not notice it at first, but after washing the holes can become more prominent. The heat that the washing brings can cause the fibers to continue to break. In the future when storing clothing add cedar chips or lavender and rosemary sachets which can keep your clothes smelling fresh and the critters away.
