Garment Protectors for Formal Wear

If you use your garment rack for out of season clothes storage or for storing special occasion clothes, you want to make sure that you are protecting those clothes the right way.  The most common threats to stored clothes are insects and moisture.  Both of these disasters can be avoided by keeping stored clothes covered in proper garment storage bags.  This dress and suit protector garment bag

is perfect for that job!  Garment storage bags should feature a zipper to fully close the bag for a good seal, ensuring water and bugs stay out!  I like this particular garment bag because it has one clear side that is made of PEVA , which is also an eco friendly material, but the best thing about it is that it allows you to see what is stored in each bag.  That way you don’t have to open up endless garment bags to find the right suit or formal dress you are looking for.  On the other side of this garment bag there is a fabric backing which serves two purposes.  First, it allows for some airflow to counteract the plastic front.  And secondly, it can provide valuable protection from sun damage.  A properly designed garment bag allows you to save suits, formal wear for years, keeping them safe from water, insects and sun damage.  If you have an open style garment rack in your home, a garment cover is a must have for those special clothes that you want to make last!
Here are some tips for buying a garment bag:
•    Look for a fully closed model.  Sometimes these are vinyl, sometimes canvas, polyester and even hard plastic clothes storage boxes are a great choice when you don’t have space on the closet rod.
•    Check to see how many hangers it can accommodate – some only hold one garment, great for formals, while others hold up to eight garments in one bag, which is a better choice for suits and business attire.

These nifty clothes saving inventions couldn’t be easier to use.  Simply hang your clothes up as you normally would on a hanger, gather a few of those hangers together and then slip one of these plastic clothes storage bags over the top of the hanger.  This helps with everything from dust and water stains to damage from moths and other insects.  And since they are crystal clear, you can still see everything that you have in your closet.

Here are some additional ways to make your clothes last longer:
1.     Cedar – Cedar is a natural insect repellent and smells heavenly, doing double duty in the closet and helping to extend the life of your clothing.  Look for cedar hangers, sachets and other products.
2.    Washing Carefully – Don’t be lazy with your laundry.  Following the manufacturer’s instructions on washing and drying can save wear and tear, extending the life of your garments substantially.  Example:  If it says wash in cold water, then do so.  Not HOT water, not WARM water, just cold.
3.    Out of Season Clothes Storage – store clothes that are out of season properly, taking careful care to keep them free from moisture damage.  Sealed plastic boxes and garment bags are two simple ways to do this.
