Caring for Coats & Jackets
Bring the karma back to your favourite coat which keeps you warm, dry and cosy with these nifty storage tips.
There is nothing better than wrapping up in a snug, quality coat in the wintertime. As the temperature drops, our favourite coats and jackets don’t just keep us looking stylish, but they play an essential part in keeping us cosy and warm. But how do you get the most out of your favourite winter warmers? Today we will give you our top tips on how to care for your coats and jackets, with quirky and intelligent storage solutions.
1 – Choosing the Right Hangers
You probably didn’t’ know that hangers play a crucial part in prolonging the life of your clothes, especially when it comes to outerwear. Heavier garments like coats and jackets should always be stored using broad shoulder hangers. Our Urbaboxx range of Broad Shoulder Hangers will provide the perfect amount of support for needed items such as suits, jackets and coats. By correctly choosing the right hangers, you will reduce the chance of your items losing their shape.
2 – Heavy-duty Storage Solutions
Our winter coats and jackets tend to be a lot bulkier than our regular clothes and garments. When hanging your heavier garments, it is important to use durable, sturdy methods of storage. Our Urbaboxx range of Koofstof Clothing Racks are excellent for holding your heavier items of clothing and perfect for winter coats and jackets. With a high load capacity of up to 150kg per shelf, our units are ideal for storing heavier winter garments. You can also keep all of your favourite accessories underneath in the sizeable 18-litre storage boxes. This way, you can quickly grab your stylish winter jacket and complimentary scarf when you’re in a hurry.
3 – Using Protective Covers
A luxury winter coat can usually be an investment. So, protecting your expensive winter gear is really important. The best way to preserve the quality of your winter coats and jackets is to keep them covered up whenever they are not needed. For instance, in the summer months, you may wish to store your winter outerwear away using one of our quality Urbaboxx clothes covers. Made from heavy-duty materials, our range of clothes covers are ideal for supporting heavy winter garments. Our covers are available in a variety of sizes and colours, including clear PEVA, so that you can always keep a close eye on your favourite items.
4 – Always Hang, Never Fold.
When it comes to keeping your winter coats and jackets looking their best, you will want to avoid folding them away. Investing in durable, quality hangers are essential for maintaining the quality of your winter garments. Using our Urbaboxx range of well-made wooden hangers will allow the garment to hang in a natural position, thus reducing the likelihood of annoying folds and creases. Depending on the fabric, stubborn folds can take a long time to disappear if left untreated.
5 – Get Creative with A Tailor’s Dummy
Add a touch of class with our beautiful Tailor’s Dummies. When you think of storing your quality winter coats and jackets, many people overlook the usefulness of a good old Tailor’s Dummy. Not only is this a creative and fun way of displaying your favourite items, but they also act as a great storage solution for when you just need to grab your jacket and go. Your cosy winter gear will always be on hand for those days when you are in a hurry, making them ready-to-go whenever you need them. A Tailor’s Dummy is an ideal solution for storing your winter coats and jackets, as it allows the garments to hang in a natural position, without the annoyance of ugly folds and creases.
