Keeping you fabric stock smelling clean

If you haven't realized it by now, storing fabric can be tricky. Plastic tubs or containers work out best but some people still insist on hanging the fabric in a closet. When was the last time you went into a used clothing store? It smelled musty right? Your fabric if not stored properly will get that musty smell too. Would you buy an item that smelled musty and old - not likely, so why would you use fabric that smelled that way in your projects?

Here are a few ways to keep your fabrics smelling nice other than plastic containers:
  • Use a air purifier also known as a room air cleaner. You have seen them advertised on TV. They are the units that filter smoke and dust out of the air.
  • Hang cedar blocks in the closet where the fabric is hung.
  • Line the fabric closet with cedar.
