Are summers around the corner? Want to pack up your winter clothes? Well, got a few jackets that you want to make sure that you store properly during the summer months? Jackets are actually quite difficult to maintain if you do not follow the required steps. You need to make sure that you follow certain things in order for you to be able to maintain your jackets properly. So, when the summers are approaching, what are the things that you need to follow in order to maintain your jacket? Come; let’s take a look at some of them:
- So, the first step involves prepping the jacket for storing. You cannot simply take a jacket, wear it and then stash it away, hoping that it will remain proper and intact. The first thing that you will have to do is send your jacket for a dry wash. Send it to a good laundry service that will dry wash it properly for you and then send it back to you.
- Once your jacket has been properly dry washed, you need to make sure that it is stored away in the right manner. You will have to first and foremost put your jacket out in the sun for some time. This will help in getting rid of any germs that might be residing in it because sunlight is extremely potent when it comes to destroying germs that affect clothes. So, make sure that before you pack your jacket into the wardrobe, it has been properly laid out under the sun and then you can brush it properly and then get it ready to be stored.
- One thing that you have to keep in mind is the folds. If you are planning on folding your jacket and storing it, then you will have to make sure that all the folds are in the right place, so that when you finally do take the jacket out again, the folds are set in the right place or else if you get stuck with an awkward fold, then it will be very hard to get rid of it.
- And finally when it comes to formal jackets, while storing them, never fold them. Always make sure that you hang them and you put them inside their covers. There should be naphthalene balls inside the wardrobe as well which will help in keeping germs from infesting.
These are some of the basic things that one has to do when it comes to storing jackets for summers.
