How To Store Table Linens Properly

How To Store Table Linens Properly


One of the more common questions we receive in the store this time of year is in regards to how to store table linens properly, for long periods. With the holidays coming up and people starting to pull out their linens from storage it becomes clear that there has to be a better way. So to help you and others with tips on pre-storage, proper ways to cover, storing flat or hanging, we’ve put together a quick guide to storing your linens.

How To Store Table Linens

Just two steps, when followed properly will keep your linens looking new for years to come.


The most important step in storing table linens is making sure that they are properly cleaned before you store them. Make sure you check for and treat and major stains and wash your table linen thoroughly. Often the easier step is to have your linen dry cleaned and press by a professional. This is typically the best pre-storage practice.

Where & Ways to Store Your Linens

It is best to store your table linens in a cool, dark, and well ventilated area. There are typically two ways to store your linens, flat or hanging. Below are some tips for both.

Storing Your Linens Flat

Place the same tissue paper between the folds. You want to “soften” the folds to prevent long term creases. Never fold them crisp for an extended period. And it’s good to shake them out a few times a year.

Hanging Your Linens

When hanging your linens make sure to use padded hangers with one linen to a hanger. If you cover your linens make sure to use white 100% cotton, never use a plastic bag. Fore longer pieces it may be best to use an over the door hanger.

Dry Cleaning Tips and Tricks!


Dry Cleaning Tips and Tricks from your friends at Fabricare Center:

As you start the week, here are some of our favorite Fabricare Center dry cleaning tips! Words to live by…

  1. Never rub stains, blot them!
  2. Don’t iron stained or soiled clothes.
  3. Never put a garment away for a season without cleaning it.
  4. Protect your garments from prolonged exposure to sunlight or strong artificial lights.
  5. Clean all matching pieces of an outfit together.
  6. Always hang leather garments on padded hangers to help retain their shape.
  7. Regular dry cleaning with GreenEarth will actually help your clothes last longer.
  8. Spray perfume and hairspray on before you get dressed. The alcohol in the spray can fade, discolor, or stain clothes.
  9. Carefully fold your sweaters. Don’t hang them or stuff them in a drawer.
  10. Dry cleaning extends the life of a garment by reducing the wear and tear from a regular washing machine.
  11. Have suits dry cleaned in GreenEarth every 2-3 wearings to prevent oil and dirt build up around the collar and cuffs, remove wrinkles, and refresh the fabric.
  12. Dry clean your denim. It will help preserve the dye, keep the denim dark, and prevent fading.
  13. Sunscreen is good for the skin, but bad for the clothes. Be careful with sunscreen application, as it can fade or stain your garment.
  14. Plastic bags are provided to protect your garments until you get home. When you put away your clothes, we recommend storing them either uncovered or in fabric garment bags.
  15. Protect garments, especially silks, from excessive perspiration, as it can cause many dyes to discolor.
  16. Discuss all stains with us. Make sure to point out light-colored or invisible spills, such as those from sodas, fruit juices, or white wine.
  17. Even if it’s a special occasion garment that you wear only once or twice a year, have it dry cleaned before putting it back in your closet.
  18. Dry cleaning utilizes more powerful, non-water based solutions that rid your garments of those stubborn, set-in stains.
  19. Always store clothing in temperature-controlled environments, such as an extra closet or under your bed.
  20. To keep your area rugs fresh, we recommend getting them professionally dry cleaned every 1-2 months.
