Your winter clothes need to hibernate now.       

Cover some clothes storage basics, and your clothes will wake up refreshed and beautiful this fall. 

• Check the care label on your sweater to make sure it’s machine washable. If so, use the heavy duty cycle on your Whirlpool® Washer, so all your clothes are clean before storing. 

• Choose your storage space or container wisely. Use a closet, chest, or wardrobe that’s clean, dry, and dark to hang items. Pack neatly folded items in well-sealed cardboard, plastic, or wooden boxes.

• Ban the bugs – but weigh whether you need to go with mothballs or the more pleasantly aromatic natural options of cedar chips or lavender.
