The Truth about Garment Bags
Throughout the years you’ve made a significant investment in your wardrobe, so it makes sense that you would want to safely protect and store your favourite dresses, suits, leather or wool jackets, right?
Well, so many of us overlook the importance of protecting our garments against environmental elements and it can cause serious irreparable damage. As well as this, people are unaware of the type of garment bag they should be using and may even be using ones that are causing the damage.
Our clothes need ongoing care and protection against pesky insects (especially moths), dirt, dust, mould, moisture and humidity. These are all first priority concerns when storing your garments for long periods of time, or until the next season.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN CHOOSING YOUR GARMENT BAGS..
Say No to Plastic Bags and Non-Woven Fabrics
We Repeat: Say NO to plastic and non-woven bags! Generally, these are the most common types of garment bags and they’re cheap, and generally manufactured from plastic (PEVA – commonly used in shower curtains) or non-woven fabrics, similar to the material used to make supermarket bags.
It is important that you completely avoid these types of garment bags as they can cause serious, irreversible damage such as mould (particularly to your suede and leather jackets), also fading and discolouration (yellowing) in cottons, embellished pieces, wedding gowns and other delicate fabrics.
The reason being is that our clothes need fresh air to rejuvenate and nourish the fabric fibres of your garments. It's basically like "freshening them up". When using these types of garment bags made from plastic and non woven materials, NO fresh air can comfortably circulate in and around your garments particularly if stored for long periods of time or from season to season.
Instead, by storing your garments in a natural fibre such as 100% cotton garment covers, it is guaranteed to safeguard your garments and maintain fabric integrity. Cotton also has many fabulous attributes that preserves the longevity of your garments' for the short and particularly long term storage (more on this below).
Dry Cleaning Plastic Bags should NEVER be used to store your wears. The only purpose of these bags is to transport your dry cleaned clothes from the shop to your home safely. Discolouration can be caused by BHT (butylated hydroxyltolune) an anti-oxidant found in these plastic bags which can cause irreparable damage to your garments; especially leathers, suede, velvet, wool, and other delicate fabrics.
If you are storing your clothes in these plastic dry cleaning bags, they will block natural air flow circulating through to your garments which means the freshly pressed fabric fibres cannot comfortably breathe and it will again lead to mould build-up and spots (especially when exposed to excessive sunlight), fading and discolouration of your treasured garments.
