Fur Clothing Care

Millie Kwan - Sunday, February 26, 2012

Fur clothing is made from animal hides that still have the hair attached. The most common types of fur clothing include fox, mink, sable, rabbit, chinchilla and seal. The presence of hair means that fur clothing requires special care.

How to care for fur jackets
  • Store fur clothing during the summer. This generally requires a refrigerated unit made specifically for this purpose. The ideal temperature for storing fur is 50 degrees Fahrenheit. A humidity of 50 percent prevents the fur from drying out without allowing it to become wet.
  • Avoid keeping fur clothing in regular closets, since closets are typically 10 degrees warmer than the rest of the house. They also don’t provide the constant airflow needed to maintain the conditions needed to store fur.
  • Keep fur clothing from picking up unpleasant odors. This is especially common with cedar closets and mothballs.
  • Condition your fur clothing once per year. Fur requires professional cleaning from an expert, like Sarni Cleaners. We offer seasonal fur storage in our secure temperature and humidity controlled vaults.
