Should I Store My Clothing in the Plastic Dry Cleaning Bag?

We get this question all the time and the answer is ABSOLUTELY NOT!

Plastic Bags are placed over your clothes to protect them from the elements when they are being transferred from our facility to your home. Once they arrive at your home, they should be removed from the plastic bag then stored. I know this may sound crazy but clothes need to breathe and they cannot breathe in a plastic bag.  The plastic bags can also cause oxidation which leads to discoloration of the clothes. The damp environment in the bag will be a breeding ground for moths, which will eat through your clothes. Most of us have special outfits that we only wear once in awhile, such as formals. If you’d like extra protection for these specialty items, you can place your items in a cloth garment bag. Arrow sells garment bags in our store and on our website.
