Super Tip Thursday- What To Do Immediately With Dry Cleaning
When you bring clothes home from the dry cleaner, please take them out of the plastic bags. Those bags are only meant to protect clothes until you get them home; they aren’t good for long-term storage. Moisture can build up in the bags, leading to mildew problems. The bags can also cause white clothes to yellow, and other clothes to fade. I’ve also heard some suggest that you could cut off the plastic bag below the shoulder to provide dust protection while still avoiding the problems plastic bags can cause. I take them off immediately and take off the wire hangers too (see No More Wire Hangers). I hang them on nice hangers. And I do have a few garment bags that are better to house clothes.
