Store in a dry, dark, cool and clean place. When looking for that perfect storage place, be sure to avoid wet and warm environments, such as an attic or basement. These are breeding grounds for moths, insects and mold. Also, avoid placing garments in a fume-filled garage or near heating ducts. Even though these areas may be convenient and out of the way, fumes and gases can affect dyes and discolor clothes. Whether you choose a spare closet or under a bed, make sure your storage area is clean.
