How To Store Sweaters

Today I’m continuing my closet series by showing you how you can store sweaters over the spring and summer months.

After purging my closet a few years ago, I no longer change out my closet with the change of the seasons. I keep fall/winter clothes on one side and spring and summer on the other.

How To Store Sweaters

For your wool and cashmere sweaters, you’re going to want to store them in some type of storage bag. This is a great way to keep them clean and bug-free. This washable and breathable sweater storage bag on Amazon was under $30 and perfect to keep my sweaters safe. 8 sweaters fit into this bag with room to spare.

For your cotton and polyester sweaters, folding them on shelves or hanging them on hangers is perfectly fine. While you’re getting ready to make a mess changing your closet around, now is a great time to change your hangers to velvet ones. Not only are they much thinner than the plastic ones, but they’re amazing at keeping your tops in place so they don’t slide off.How To Store Sweaters

Summer is just around the corner and as I’m getting ready to pack up my sweaters, I thought I would try this cashmere sweater storage bag from Amazon.

I’ve always been lazy and just let my sweaters either hang all summer or kept them folded on a shelf. Since investing in better pieces over the winter, I knew I needed to try and keep them safe from bugs.

There were many to choose from on Amazon but this particular one had great reviews for a great price.

There were mixed reviews about how many sweaters would fit in the bag but I fit 8 nicely with room to spare for one or two more light ones.

The bag of cedar shavings was a nice addition, but it did make a little bit of a mess. I added a little tissue paper to catch any shavings from getting embedded in my sweaters.

When it’s sweater season again, I’ll be sure to come back here and give my full Cashmere Sweater Storage Bag review.

If you don’t have velvet or padded hangers, grab a set. They’re great for keeping your sweaters and tops in place so they don’t fall off. I got these ivory velvet hangers from Amazon and they’re great! They occasionally run them on sale so be sure to keep your eyes peeled.
