Proper Wedding Gown Storage
and Other Storage Tips
Dry cleaners have a love / hate relationship with plastic.
Why we love it:
- Plastic coated hangers are perfect for preventing garments from being snagged or torn.
- Hangers can be customized to be small or large based on items that will be hung. (For example, we prefer a larger-based plastic hanger for heavier coats and wedding gowns.)
- A typical plastic dry-cleaning bag protects clothing during its trip from our plant to a client’s home.
As you can see, there are some pretty wonderful uses for plastic. However, there is something pretty significant about it that we don’t like. It can create a less than ideal environment for your wardrobe. Whether its a plastic dry cleaning bag or storage bin, these items can trap moisture or break down over time; this may cause damage or discoloration. Fabrics like to breathe. Breathable garment bags are ideal in protecting delicate apparel.
Wedding gowns and other treasured attire that is cleaned and preserved should be placed in an acid-free preservation box. At Hallak, we wrap our wedding gowns in acid-free tissue paper and then into a museum-quality preservation box. All of our preservations come with a lifetime guarantee. Interested in an estimate?
