Ask Walter from James in St. Petersburg

“Is it okay to leave my clothes in the plastic bags I get from my cleaners?”

Walter suggests you remove your cleaned garments from plastic dry cleaning bags. That’s because they prevent your fabric from breathing. They can also lead to mildew and what’s known as “fume fading”. Fume fading yellows whites and discolors colored fabrics. That’s why Walter recommends storing your clothes in cloth garment bags, which are breathable and offer some protection against damage from moths and other insects.
