The Way to Keep Stored Blankets and Comforters Smelling Fresh

As you’re sure those blankets and blankets were tidy once you stashed them away, when you dig them out of their cupboard or drawer, then they may not smell so fresh when they were in storage for some time. Humidity and lack of air flow create conditions that result in less-than-fresh fragrances trapped in the fibers of the stored bedding, but dry, airy storage ensures the blankets remain fresh, ready to warm up your mattress on a cool night.

Dry Storage

Keeping the blankets and blankets completely dry while stored is important to maintaining them smelling fresh and clean. Closets or trunks in areas that are musty or damp result in odors on everything within them. Closets with cable shelving systems allow a tiny quantity of air to circulate within them. Open storage trunks or your closets to air them out every week or two. Air helps keep cloths.

Dust-Free Dilemma

If you’re concerned about the bedding getting dusty in its own storage area, you may be tempted to set the blankets and comforters in bags to maintaining their surfaces free from dust or even cobwebs. But plastic bags trap moisture indoors, which could create your bedding plump or plump as time passes. A breathable cotton tote, such as a fresh laundry bag or possibly a pillowcase, serves as an outer covering that helps prevent dust when allowing the bedding to continue smelling fresh.

Make Scents

Scented sachets created out of natural fragrances add a pleasant aroma to both the storage area and the nearby cloths. Craft a sachet utilizing a cotton tea bag, a bunched-up coffee filter or scrap cloth, placing the fragrance materials in the middle and joining the sachet closed with string or yarn. Potential fragrance materials comprise dried lavender, cinnamon sticks or even incense cones. Dried herbs sachets can be placed directly on top of or involving the blankets. Man-made fragrances like incense can leave an oily residue, so hang those sachets from shelves or set them in a corner of their storage area, not touching the cloths.

Mildew Prevention

Before putting those blankets or comforters away for a while, ensure they are completely dry; even a small quantity of trapped moisture could lead to a mildew problem if the things are stashed in a place without air flow. The space inside storage closet or back may still be damp when an air conditioner or dehumidifier is used in your house. Add louvers into the cupboard door to ensure air flow, or make the drawers of a storage dresser slightly open, at least occasionally, to allow air flow, which promotes drying and discourages mold and mold.
