Household hint: Not in the bag. Never store garments completely in polyethylene bags such as the bags from the dry cleaner. Polyethlyene bags emit a gas that can change the colors of dyes on some clothes. Use these bags only as capes over the shoulders of garments to prevent dust. Paper is a good wrap to present dust accumulation as is cloth.
