How To Properly Store Your Sweaters For Spring & Summer

We’re getting closer and closer to warm weather, so unless you have a closet like Lisa Vanderpump’s, it’s right about that time to clear up some space for your spring things. But instead of just stuffing your sweaters into a box and shoving them under your bed (don’t tell me I’m the only one that’s done that), you really should store them properly so that they’re as good as new when you need ’em again next fall. It’s super simple, just see the steps below.

Step 1: Make sure your knits are freshly laundered or dry-cleaned—that’ll help prevent any permanent stain damage, plus keep any bugs from wanting to attack.

Step 2: Group your sweaters by material—cashmere should be stored with cashmere, wool with wool, and so forth.

Step 3: Choose your means for storage. According to Real Simple, knits are best kept when stowed in boxes made of breathable fabrics like muslin, but if you can’t spare the space, you can also use vacuum sealed bags or air-tight boxes, just be careful not to trap in any air or moisture.

Step 4: For a final touch, throw a lavender sachet into your box or vacuum packed bag to keep knits smelling fresh, while also repelling any bugs.

See? Not hard at all.
