Storage Tips

Taking care when storing your crocheted pieces can be just as important as proper cleaning. Here are a few helpful suggestions.

• Fold crocheted garments, don't hang them. If you must hang them, use a well-padded hanger.

• Clean items before storing them. Body oils from wearing or handling crocheted pieces actually accumulate dirt -- spots that will show up later.

• Use moth repellent for natural fibers.

• Occasionally refold items stored for long periods of time to prevent weak spots from developing along the folds.

• Avoid putting clean items in airtight plastic bags that prevent fibers from breathing. Use a garment bag or storage box, or wrap in a clean sheet.
