Closet is turning my clothes yellow!

2 years ago

Hi everyone,

I’ve been noticing yellow splotches on clean white clothes for a while now, and have finally figured out it is caused by acid leaching from the wooden closet and drawers. I can usually get the stains out, but now I don’t know how to store them to prevent this happening again. There is lots of advice out there for long term storage, but this is just not practical for the items I wear all the time. I thought of trying plastic boxes/garment bags but some sites advise against this as they can also leach chemicals and acids onto the fabrics. It seems to only take a few days after washing for these stains to appear. Hoping someone can help!
