How to store a mink fur coat
Any fur garments, including mink fur coats, need special care. It is very important! In particular, the issue of how to store a mink fur coat at a time when it is not in use becomes topical.
To preserve the original appearance of a fur garment, one must adhere to certain rules.
The first and most important of these is storage in a place where sunlight can not affect the fur. Otherwise, the thing will fade and lose its brightness.
To know how to store a mink coat, no special experience is required. It is enough to know only the key points that will help extend the life of fur, keep the original gloss and luxury of the product.
So, the second rule: if you store a fur coat in a closet at home, then you need to hang it on wide shoulders, so that the product does not lose its shape. The ideal hanger is the one made of wood. It should be noted that some models of fur coats require a lot of space in the cabinet, and therefore, they are strictly forbidden to hang close to other products. You can not oppress mink fur coats, otherwise they will lose their shape, the fur will stop shining and become darker (with the black fur the opposite happens - it fades and brightens), the fibers can be broken.
The third rule concerns the use of special cases. If you decide to purchase them, then before you store the mink fur coat packed, you should pay attention to several aspects. Firstly, any fur coat requires only a fabric cover.
Secondly, if a piece of light fur, then the cover must be blue or black. This helps to minimize the possibility of damage to the product by ultraviolet rays. Thirdly, the quality of the cover must be high. It should not be painted in any way.
The fourth mandatory condition - storage is subject only to dry fur. If the fur coat is wet, then the initial task is to dry it. Properly dry it is possible so: shake the product and hang it in a well-ventilated place. No hair dryer! It will hopelessly spoil the fur.
Regardless of whether you have chosen a cover or decided to hang a fur coat without it, the fur needs protection from moths.Hence, before storing a mink fur coat for a long time, it is worth choosing high-quality protection.

Otherwise, there is a risk that in the end they are transformed into very unpleasant smells, which are very difficult to extract. Once during the winter it is possible and necessary to ventilate the fur coat in the frost (on the balcony, for example).
In the event that the fur product has a very long storage, you can buy a special vacuum bag for clothing. Before storing the mink coat in it, it must be dried, ventilated, smooth villi (only by hand, no comb). Then the product needs to be rolled up inside the fur and put into a vacuum bag. Plus, that such a package makes it possible to keep the thing in perfect condition.
