Buy­ing clothes is easy but main­tain­ing them is im­por­tant. Don’t store clothes in a plas­tic bag and be­fore stor­ing dry clean them, say ex­perts. Here are some sug­ges­tions: Be­fore pack­ing the clothes, dry clean and wash them. Dirty cloth­ing can at­tract ver­min and in­sects, which may dam­age your cloth­ing.

Avoid plas­tic bags as they can trap mois­ture and cause mildew, which spoil the fab­rics. Acid-free boxes and tis­sue pa­per should be used as not all plas­tic boxes are s afe. They re­lease chem­i­cals, which could have neg­a­tive ef­fects on the cloth­ing.

The right hang­ers are a must. With all the same hang­ers, your wardrobe will look like an em­po­rium. If all the gar­ments are level, they are eas­ier to see. Try the rub­ber cov­ered non-slip hanger.
