Clean and dry clothing before storing: Do not use any fabric softener, bleach or starch and give the clothing an extra soak to be sure all detergent is removed. Even the slightest amount of moisture will cause mildew and may spread to ruin the rest of the stored clothing.

Storage Containers: Either hard or soft plastics make great storage containers for summer clothing. Zippered garment bags work well for suits and formal wear and take up little room in the back of your closet.

Protection against moths: An airtight container can’t stop eggs that may already be on the clothing, from hatching and doing damage. To avoid this, put several mothballs in the containers – both at the bottom of the tub before putting in any clothing and on top.

Label each container: As you place the clothes in the container, write it down on a piece of paper. You can paste it to the outside for quick reference. This way, if you need the swimsuit for a vacation, you will not have to dishevel through the storage containers.
