Customisable Humidity Levels

Some clothes have specific instructions when it comes to proper storage and care. In humid environments such as Singapore, it may seem unavoidable for the growth of mould or mildew on some of your outfits, or to have them slowly degrade due to damaging moisture. Through the use of dry cabinets, you will be able to customise the humidity levels in a controlled environment created by the device. This will ensure all outfits placed in it are safe from the risk of mould, mildew, and moisture.

Prevents Odour

Dry cabinets effectively prevent unpleasant odours from developing in your clothing. By maintaining the right humidity levels, they inhibit the growth of odour-causing bacteria and fungi. Your clothes will remain fresh and free from any musty or unpleasant smells, even during extended storage periods. This provides the convenience of grabbing your desired outfit knowing that nothing will affect your style and confidence.

Removes risks of pests

Beyond moisture-related issues, dry cabinets play a pivotal role in safeguarding your clothing against the relentless threat of pests, such as moths. These tiny yet destructive intruders can wreak havoc on your beloved garments, causing significant damage and often leaving you with irreparable clothing items. With the precision of a sealed environment, dry cabinets are a barrier that ensures your clothes remain off-limits to these unwanted visitors.

Humidity Control

Dry cabinets as a clothing storage solution provide an easy avenue for humidity control through a user-friendly interface.

Wardrobes and closets provide you with limited humidity control. You will need to purchase dehumidifiers that may need to be replaced often, especially in humid environments.

Clothing racks do not provide any form of humidity control with outfits hung on them being fully exposed to the elements.

Mould and Mildew Prevention

The precise control of humidity and moisture levels by a dry cabinet can provide fabric protection against mould and mildew.

Wardrobes and cabinets as a clothing storage solution is heavily dependent on the quality of dehumidifiers placed into it, along with the environment of the area. Therefore the risk of having mould and mildew affecting your clothing will always be present.

The fabric protection against mould and mildew of outfits hung on a clothing rack is at an absolute minimum.

Odour Prevention

Dry cabinets provide control over humidity and moisture to ensure a well-ventilated environment. This prevents any chances of your clothes developing unpleasant odours.

Odour prevention in wardrobes and cabinets will involve extra steps such as ensuring your clothes are completely dry before putting them in, along with the environment in which the wardrobe or closet is placed.

Preventing odour on outfits placed on a clothing rack involves taking extensive measures to ensure the environment is dry, free of unpleasant smells, and has an adequate amount of dehumidifiers. However, this still does not guarantee fabric protection against odours.

Ensure your clothing is clean

To make the most of your dry cabinet for clothing, cleanliness is key. Before storing any outfits in them, ensure they are free from dirt, oil, and sweat. Clean clothes will ensure a fresh environment is created within the dry cabinet, preventing the spread of germs as well as unpleasant odours.

Use customisable organisers

At DigiCabi we provide an extensive selection of customisable organisers such as trays, drawers, and hangers, all specifically designed to complement our dry cabinets and cater to different storage needs. This will also allow for adequate spacing between your clothing, enabling ventilation of both heat and moisture to offer maximum fabric protection.

Avoid excessive heat and sunlight exposure

To ensure the optimal condition of your clothing, it is crucial for you to place your dry cabinet in a location away from excessive heat and sunlight. High temperatures can cause the fabric to weaken, potentially leading to shrinkage and may place delicate garments at risk. Excessive sunlight, on the other hand, can lead to fabric discolouration, causing your clothing to look worn over time.

Set the right humidity level Different fabrics have varying humidity

requirements. For optimal fabric protection, know the specific needs of your garments. Delicate fabrics like silk and cashmere may require lower humidity, while natural fibres like cotton or wool might thrive in a slightly higher humidity range. You can find your clothing’s care requirements through the labels on them as they often provide recommendations for humidity and temperature settings. We recommend following these guidelines to maintain fabric integrity.
