How To Properly Store Linens

If you are someone who really enjoys the look and feel of good linens (I think most of us probably fall into that category), then chances are you have quite a few options to choose from in your closet at the moment. Linens often get their own special storage space around the home because of how important they are to us. They are the fabrics we sleep on every night for years. It pays, therefore, to take good care of them and store them properly. Below are some tips for properly storing linens, both in your home and in self storage.

Climate Control

Whether you are storing linens in your home, or in cheap self storage, you are going to want to make sure it is in a dry, dark place. In your home, that often means a linen closet. If you are opting for the self storage option, that means looking for a facility that offers climate controlled storage. Mold and mildew can quickly become a problem and will destroy delicate linen fabrics fast. Keeping linens covered while in storage, as well as in a climate controlled unit, is your safest bet.

Avoid Plastic

This is especially true if you have white linens. If you have dry cleaned your linens before putting them into cheap self storage, it might be tempting to simply leave them in the plastic while they are in storage. This, however, can end up causing linens to yellow. Keeping them in cardboard or cedar boxes can also result in yellowing.

Use Sachets

Whether your linens are sitting in a hall closet, in a chest at the foot of your bed, or in cheap self storage, you want to protect them from picking up any unpleasant odours. Use sachets, or scented drawer liners, to keep your linens smelling clean and fresh, and avoid that dingy, musty smell that fabric can pick up after a long time sitting idle. Make sure any sachets or liners you use are compatible with white fabric and aren’t going to be stain risks.

If you have accumulated a lot of linens over the years and are thinking about putting them away into storage for some time, keep the above linen storage tips in mind.
