Winter clothes can be bulky, expensive, and hard to maintain. You want to keep them in good condition for the next cold season, but you don’t have enough space or time to store them properly at home. That’s why self storage is a smart and simple solution for your winter clothes. With self storage, you can rent a secure and climate-controlled unit where you can store your winter clothes safely and conveniently. In this article, we will share some tips on how to prepare and pack your winter clothes for self storage, and why you should choose Cube Self Storage as your storage partner.
Winter has come and gone and it’s high time to put away your winter things. Let’s welcome spring with some fast and easy spring-cleaning tips to store your warm winter coats, boots, and muffs.
Always launder your winter clothes before packing them away. Storing clothing with deodorants and perfumes still on it will only cause clothing to discolor over time. While storing clothes without drying clothes fully will produce a musty smell on your clothes and attract mold to manifest. Remember, fur coats can’t be washed – get them dry-cleaned, instead!
Avoid creases by hanging them up in your wardrobe with plastic covers but if space is limited, there’s a space-saving trick – roll instead of folding! Then, place them into stackable storage boxes as plastic storage boxes are water resistant and protect well from pests.
Keep and store the boxes or containers in a cool place that’s off the floor and away from damp, direct sunlight and stuffy air. For added protection, consider vacuum packing. Vacuum-packed bags can save on space and protect items from dirt, dampness, mold, and bugs. For leather coats, avoid storing them in hot places as they’ll crack and peel!
