Types of Hanging Garment Bags
Short hanging garment bags come in a variety of types and styles. They are usually made from vinyl, nylon, polyester, or cotton and feature a zipper closure and an opening at the top to accommodate a hanger. A few premium features you may find on high-quality hanging garment bags include:
- Breathable fabrics
- Heavy-duty zippers
- Machine washable materials
- See-through panels
- Moth-proof designs
Some bag types are made for short-term storage, some for travel, and others for long-term storage. One of the lowest quality hanging garment bag types is plastic dry cleaning bags. The plastic in these bags seals in moisture, and because the clothing inside cannot breathe, the fabric can start to deteriorate or mold.
Why Purchase a Hanging Garment Bag?
Hanging garment bags are great for organizing your clothes into different categories, but their main benefit is that they keep your clothing protected from damage.
Many things such as dust, pests, and sun exposure can damage your clothing.
Clothing that is not worn often collects dust. And, dust particles can be sharp, which can cause tears or holes in your clothing over time.
Pests such as moths are attracted to natural animal fabrics like wool, silk, and linen. Moth damage is easy to prevent but expensive and time-consuming to remedy.
Clothing that is exposed to too much sun can easily fade. Sun also accelerates the aging process and makes clothing look old.

Hanging Garment Bag Care
Organic cotton hanging garment bags are ideal for long-term storage, but like most fabrics, they eventually become dirty and require laundering.
To wash Hayden Hill hanging bags, remove the leather zipper pull and turn the bag inside out. Wash the bag on a cold wash cycle with like colors using a mild detergent. For best results, shake the bag out after washing and air dry. To remove any wrinkles, iron the bag on low heat, avoiding contact with the organza side panel.
