Fall is upon us and it’s time to switch your closets from summer to fall/winter wardrobes. Proper handling and maintenance of your off-season garments is critical as it can extend the life of certain pieces by several years. Therefore, the wardrobe storage experts at Garde Robe created important tips that will help preserve your offseason wardrobe.
#1. Always make sure garments are clean prior to storing them for an extended period of time. Even if the garment looks clean, if it has been worn it may have bacteria and or body oils that will damage the fabric if left untreated for several months. You should always remove your dry cleaner’s clear plastic bags immediately as these bags trap gasses that can cause discoloration and don’t allow the garment to breathe properly. Don’t entrust your precious clothes to a random cleaner; the best in the city are Hallak, Meurice and Jeeves.
