Properly storing your preserved gown is important. Store your gown in a cool, dry, and dark area. High humidity and/or heat make basements and attics an unsafe environment to store your gown. Every year or so, you should take your gown out of the box and inspect it for any areas that may begin to yellow. This also keeps the gown from retaining any permanent wrinkles from being folded for long periods. Be sure to carefully refold the gown back into the same box it was in.
