Re: Storage of Linens

Like Katherine, I have used bay leaves for the past few years. I dump a handful in every drawer with whatever or nothing inside and in my Rubbermaid footlockers where I keep towels, sheets. I also interlay sheets of newspaper and bounce sheets among the linens. I include them in tubs of other things, too. I stuff my leather cowboy boots with bay leaves and loosely wadded newspaper and have found that to be successful,too. My books have survived the summers on the shelves.
Each spring, I wax my appliances with auto wax and drape them with manta cloth covers. I also stand my mattress on end against a wall and cover it with an extra large sheet.
So far these strategies have worked well for me.
