Leather jackets, silk scarves, and delicate jewelry are all treasured items that need to be stored with care. If you want to keep your favorite accessories and clothing items looking their best, you need to know how to store them properly. Here are More Space Place’s tips to help you store your delicate items.
Clean Them First
Before storing any delicate item, make sure it’s clean and dry. Dirt, oil, and moisture can cause damage over time, so it’s important to clean your items thoroughly before putting them away. Harsh chemicals or cleaners are not ideal here. For silk and leather, the most you’ll want to use is a mild soap and some warm water. Leather conditioner is great on a clean cloth for dry leather spots or a stubborn stain. Clean your jewelry with a soft brush and soapy water, and make sure all of your pieces are fully dry before storing them. Use a soft cotton cloth to dry them.
Keep Them Separated
To prevent scratching, tangling, or other damage, store your delicate jewelry separately. Use jewelry boxes, watch cases, or accessory drawers with silk linings to keep your delicate jewelry separated from the rest of your closet. Pro tip: a coat rack can easily repurpose into a bag storage rack in a pinch! Use wide hangers to keep the shoulder structure intact on your leather jackets, and make sure to hang silk items by draping them across the hanger bar so that necklines don’t stretch out. The same principle applies to delicate hats: a hat stand will preserve the shape and keep them looking good for much longer than just throwing them wherever is most convenient at the time.
Store in a Cool, Dry Place
Heat, humidity, and light can all cause damage to delicate items, so it’s important to store them in a cool, dry place. Avoid storing your items in direct sunlight, damp basements, or hot attics. If your closet is routinely too humid, you can use a dehumidifier to keep moisture in check. This is especially important for any jewelry that could possibly rust!
