Top 3 Worst Places to Store Your Ribbon Bows
3. Third worst place to put your hairbows? I'd say your pocket. You're just warming it up in there (see problem with moistness in #1 worst place for more details). Your pockets may have held other items like coins and money that will now soil your bows.
2. The second worst place to store your baby bows is your purse. Do not throw them in your purse loosey-goosey. You got lint in the bottom, old pens, open lipsticks in there and maybe some mum-mum crumbs - and then you're going to just throw your hand tied ribbon bows in that mess? Please, no. It's going to get rubbed around in there and possibly come apart or become soiled. On the go - keep a small bag that you can store them in and then put them into your purse.
1. Bathrooms are not the place to store your hair accessories. Sounds counterintuitive right because you might be doing her hair in there? Always store them in a cool, dry air place. Bathrooms are the worst place you can store your hair accessories. The humid air / steam can unstick the non toxic glue and also cause condensation and dampen the ribbon clips so the metal will rust. Suggestion is in a bedroom drawer or closet organizer and bring them to the bathroom as you are using them.
