Oftentimes, we pull out special linens for special occasions like a holiday, birthday, anniversary or some special party. When you are using linens and you need to store them, you need a location that will keep the linens neat and free from wrinkles. Fine linen storage can be easily accomplished with a storage area allowing the linens to lay flat.
One option is a wide drawer in your pantry, dining room or kitchen. This is good for easy access to the linens. If you do not have any available drawers that allow your linens to lie flat, you can use plastic bins to help create the same effect. You will need to find bins wide enough to hold your linens. Focus on the size of a standard place mat. Additionally, placing tissue paper between your linens will also help protect them. Tissue paper will also limit wrinkles of your fine linens.
Another option for fine linen storage is hanging your linens. If you have a spare closet or extra space in a closet, you can hang your linens. This option will also prevent wrinkling. When hanging your linens, it is best to use a pant hanger to eliminate any ceases. Additionally, you will want to cover the lines with tissue or place in a bag like a suit or dress bag to protect from any dust.
One thing to avoid is starch. When you wash your linens fold them, but do not starch them. Using starch can create discoloring or even attract insects.
