I keep my yardage on open shelves, and my fat quarters in dresser drawers. My scraps are cut into 5" squares and kept in plastic shoe boxes. If I do get any odor, I use a product called Fabric and Air by Glade. It does not stain fabric and works fabulously to remove any odors. I recently used it on a 70 year old dress before I cut it up to make teddy bears. There was no smell after spraying with Fabric and Air. It is an amazing product!
