Going through my family photo albums, I was teary-eyed seeing my child's photos when she was just a little baby. I started to look for more of my child's mementos. I was able to find her baby shoes, her first toy, and some other baby stuff that I kept in a chest in the attic. But some of her baby things were somewhat discolored with time. I was able to use some club soda to remove some of the discolorations, and then resolved to bring the rest to a professional cleaner. This made me look on line for ways to preserve my child's mementos. Here are a few tips I can share:

1. For formal dresses like Christening Dresses or gowns, flower girl dresses, her first party dress, boys' first baseball uniform, etc., use a garment bag, huge zip lock bags, a huge plastic container, or better yet, huge plastic vacuum bags so you can suck the air out to keep your child's' clothes “fresh”
2. For baby shoes, baby sandals or baby slippers, zip lock bags work very well. But if you prefer, you can have them “bronzed” to keep them forever.

3. For old videos on 8mm film, have them transferred to DVD. There are many shops that can do that for you.
4. For old photos, make full use of a scanner! Scan old photos and keep them on your computer, or transfer them to a DVD.
