Seal your wardrobe’s fate. Forget tucking away wool suits and coats in a closet for the summer. You’d be better off feeding them to the moths. Put “clean, dry garments in a hanging cotton bag,” and seal them tight.
Sack up. Keep leather goods, such as purses and briefcases, from “resembling a beat-up football” by housing them in a “protective storage pouch.”
Shelve the classics and other important books in “acid-free Mylar dust jackets.” Line them up vertically so the ”pages don’t stick together.”
Make memories last by putting old photographs in “acid- and lignin-free” albums or “PVC-free plastic sleeves” and keeping them out of direct sunlight.
