mink fur coatThe summertime can undoubtedly be an awkward period for fur enthusiasts. After spending so many months wearing real fur accessories you adore, you are suddenly faced with the blazing Texas sun and weather that is far too hot and humid. What are you supposed to do in situations like this? The last thing most people would do is to keep wearing their fur as the heat swells.

While you generally can’t keep wearing your real fur accessories during the summer months, you may still want to invest in their care so they can remain wearable for when the weather finally cools down. In this article, we’ll provide some of the most important details for helping your fur apparel survive the summer.

Storing Your Fur Safely

One of the first and most important tasks you will want to complete, as far as caring for your real fur accessories is concerned, is finding proper storage. It has been widely proven that investing in good fur storage is the best way to care for your fur during the height of summer. Now that the season has officially started, you will want to secure the best possible storage conditions for your mink fur coat (and similar accessories) sooner rather than later.

Ideally, you should consult a professional service to handle storing your fur. These facilities usually have ample security to keep your fur perfectly protected, as well as the best possible storage conditions so your fur remains in excellent shape.

Of course, storing your fur at home can also be a viable option, provided that you maintain the proper environment. Remember: 50 is the magic number. More specifically, you’ll want to maintain a humidity level of 50 percent, and an indoor temperature of 50 degrees Fahrenheit. You will also want to keep the area dark, but spacious enough for air to ventilate well.

Cleaning Your Fur Thoroughly

Some owners of real fur accessories decide to get their items cleaned just before putting them into storage. Some prefer to have them cleaned after taking them out of storage. Regardless of when you get your mink fur coat cleaned, you will want to plan to do so as quickly as possible. Again, the best way to do this is by utilizing a professional service that specializes in the cleaning of real fur. This is one of the few services you do not want to attempt on your own. Fur is very delicate, and needs to undergo several complicated processes in order to be fully restored. For instance, you will want to have the fur glazed and conditioned in addition to being cleaned.
