Keeps my clothes fresh
I use Prairie Aire, which is a natural air freshener that also absorbs odors. The Container Store sells them and they come from a company called Earth-Kind. I really like the Fresh Adventure - makes my clothes smell fresh and clean no matter how long they have been hanging in my closet. I also use their Fresh Cab natural mouse control - keeps mice from nesting in my closet and chewing my clothes.
I use dryer softner sheets in with cotton sweaters and summer items when storing for the winter. For wool and winter items in storage for summer, I place the dryer sheets between a paper towel. Everything smells fresh and clean when removed from Container Store clear zippered containers or plastic bins with lids. When taken out for use for the new season, there is no need to rewash or dry clean.
