Winter Wardrobe Storage Tips-Caring For Your Furs and Outerwear

Guest Post: Fabricare Cleaners

Furs and fine outerwear are investment pieces, so we want to help you properly care for them to ensure they will last season after season. It is important to properly care for and store your furs and fine jackets to avoid any damage to them during the warm weather seasons.

PROFESSIONAL CLEANING: It is essential that you get your pieces cleaned by a professional each year, especially when it comes to your furs. Even if you don’t wear them often, they gather dust, oils, and odors. Annual upkeep will help to keep your coat looking like new. Additionally, professional cleaners will inspect your outerwear for any stains, rips or tears and will properly care for and repair them.

STORAGE: When your furs and fine outerwear are not not in use, proper storage is absolutely vital to avoiding premature deterioration and drying out. Proper storage means the correct temperature (50-55 degrees), the right humidity controls (45-50% humidity), proper ventilation and UV protection.
