Who remembers Mawmaw’s old cedar chest?

Even if you can’t line an entire closet with cedar planks or panels, there are easy ways to use cedar to protect your keepsakes. Many of us have treasured family keepsakes from weddings or christenings made of delicate fibers such as angora, lace or silk. It can be difficult to find room in your house to store these items, especially when closets never seem to be big enough to hold everything we need.  And since Mawmaws generally have many different people to leave her old cedar chest to, it’s not likely that ALL of us were lucky enough to inherit it. So how to “make do?”  (more…)

Protecting Your Expensive Wool Clothes

Wool is the most popular fabric for finer men’s suits and women’s business clothing. Structured women’s suits have made a comeback, costing upward of $700 at stores. And, loose-knit sweaters in mohair and cashmere remain popular. In fact, the U.S. sheep industry produced 46 million pounds of wool in just one year. That’s a lot of suits and sweaters!

Woolen garments are a great investment. Since wool fibers resist pilling, snagging and breaking, they typically outlast synthetics. Furthermore, since wool fibers are naturally elastic, woolen garments don’t wrinkle, bag or sag out of shape.  (more…)

It’s not Snake Oil, It’s Cedar Oil!

We’d Like to Put a Bug in your Ear

You know that cedar repels bugs and keeps your clothes and accessories safe from little critters, but just WHAT are you avoiding when you install cedar closets? In short – holey clothes.

Cedar has been shown to be effective in repelling moths, roaches and silverfish – not exactly the types of visitors you want invading your closets. Synthetic fibers can resist these critters, but if your closet is home to garments made of natural fibers – wool, linen or silk – an unprotected closet may mean that your favorite sweater is bound for the garbage can.  (more…)

The biggest closet remodel you’ll ever do

It’s the garage! Think about it. How many people actually pull their vehicles into the garage everyday and use it for vehicle storage ONLY? Not many.

Ideally, homeowners want to pull their cars or trucks in while having plenty of additional room to store other items or to use as a workspace. So help them make the most of the largest open space they own. Shelving, hanging storage, cabinetry, cubbies, all create options for remodeling projects for you. (more…)
