The garment bags are long, and you will have to tear at the perforation to remove the bag from the roll. You can either tie the bag to the hanger or use a clip to make the attachment. Spray the bag and surrounding surfaces with 70% ISO once your bag is on the hanger and when you remove your bag from the hanger. You can take the garment bag home with you for re-use but please remember to wipe it down with 70% ISO when you return to ESB. Do not store anything on the upper and lower shelving.
