How to Store: Room Style and Luxury Garment Storage Bag

Storage for a luxury fur begins with the right hanger. Never use a wire hanger for a fur coat. Instead, use a broad-shouldered hanger and give it extra room in the closet to ensure it doesn't get crumbled. Moisture can damage a fur coat. Make sure the closet it hangs in is well-ventilated and free of excess moisture. If the coat gets wet from rain or snow, shake it out and let it dry before putting it away. When storing a fur coat for long periods, use a dust bag. A 100 percent cotton bag is ideal for fur coats. Don't use plastic because it doesn't allow for ventilation.

How To Wear a Fur Coat

You can prevent the coat from matting by removing brooches. Further, don't use a shoulder bag with natural fur. When wearing real fur, always wear something beneath it to avoid staining the fabric. Additionally, prevent crushing the fur by hanging the coat rather than folding it. Don't sit for long periods while wearing a fur coat.

Professional Cleaning

During a professional cleaning, experts will inspect the coat for tears and stains. They will remove the lining of the coat and send separate parts through a drum to be tumbled with sawdust. The dust removes oil and other moisture. Cleaners then vacuum the coat to remove excess sawdust and residue. Finally, electric rollers help the fur stand up and separate.
