Casa Quickie: Give Clothes Breathing Room

To keep your clothing in the best possible shape, take the plastic covering off your dry-cleaned clothes so that they can breathe. This reduces the potential for mildew or mold and also keeps moths from finding a warm, humid space to breed.

To keep the clothes protected in your closet, consider making an alternate cover by cutting a hole in the middle of the seamed short end of an old cotton pillowcase and slipping the pillowcase over the clothing, threading the hole through the end of the hanger.
