Storing Leather Articles –Tips and Tricks

When time coming for leather articles to be put back on closet shelves make sure are in good repair, clean and conditioned than select the proper storage method and location for their well-deserved rest. Boots and shoes can profit from stuffing with natural absorbent bags to keep control moisture and odor remover. Consider purchasing shoe trees as well as an alternative to aid in maintaining the integrity of your footwear. A perfect place to store a pair of shoes or boots is the box that protected them at purchase; the sturdy cardboard keeps them safe but also allows the free circulation of air.

 Clothing such as coats or jackets can be hung on padded hangers with sleeves stuffed with acid-free paper. Covering with a cloth garment bag is a good idea, although you should avoid plastic bags as they prevent the leather from breathing and can promote mildew and mold growth. Old pillowcases are an option if cloth garment bags are unavailable or too expensive.

 Bags and other accessories can be packed in boxes with acid-free paper. Again, old pillowcases are good protectors. Plastic containers are less than ideal, as they prevent air circulation. If unavoidable, make sure plastic containers have vents or punch through some holes so fresh air can reach your items.

 All leathers should be stored out of the sunlight in a dry area. Closets and wardrobes are perfect. If basements are your only option, make sure the area is free from moisture, perhaps in a part of the lower level where a dehumidifier is running, Attics may be too dry and warm, or may have areas that leak. Take care not to expose your valued leather to these challenges during storage.

 Take Pride in Protecting Your Investment

 When you fell in love with your leather footwear, apparel or accessories, you did not purchase them for just a season -- you invested in quality you hoped to enjoy for years. When cared for and stored properly, your fine leathers will be your faithful companions for many seasons, truly an affordable luxury.
