News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - Do you collect vintage or antique Christmas ornaments? Want to know what to do to keep your family Christmas treasures in good shape? If so, here are some tips on storage and care that will help keep your ornament collection in the best possible condition, this year and for many years to come.
*Wrap ornaments in acid free tissue paper
*Place ornaments in stiff cardboard containers made especially for Christmas decorations
*Do not place too many layers of ornaments on top of each other
*Do not use bubble wrap or other plastic materials (including plastic boxes) for storage purposes as plastic doesn't offer enough ventilation
*Never wrap vintage or antique ornaments in newspaper because the ink can rub off!
*Store your packed cardboard containers in a dry place that will not be exposed to water, sun, or fluorescent lights
*Never store Christmas ornaments with the hooks - these should be removed first to prevent scratching
*Small craft, paint, or make-up brushes work perfectly for careful dusting before displaying your Christmas ornament treasures!
