Terrific Tip Tuesday: Let it Breathe

Everybody loves a ziplock! They’re so handy to sort things and keep organized. However, they’re not the best for fabric storage. It’s better for  cotton to have airflow, so you don’t want to seal it up tight. If you put blocks in a ziplock, snip off the corners!

I also like to leave the top unzipped for some extra airflow. If you seal fabric in an airtight container, it can trap moisture and bugs.

  1. Great tip! I store my fabric in plastic storage containers and put several of those little packets of silicon beads with them (those little packets that come with new shoes).

  2. Thanks for the tip. I try to use old pillow cases or REALLY ugly (what was I thinking) fabric for my WIPs.

  3. It might depend on what part of the country you live in. I live in the desert so I definitely don’t have the moisture issue. Nor probably the same type of bugs you have. So Ziploc bags protect my fabric from bugs.
