Top Tips for Preparing your Winter Clothes in Store That Self Storage E14

Summer is finally on the horizon, which means dresses, skirts, shorts and t-shirts are all making a much-welcomed return, while woolly jumpers, coats, hats and scarves can be put firmly away for the next few months (we hope!). If you’re looking to create some extra wardrobe space and are fed up of your bulky winter clothes taking up room in your home, secure self-storage Isle of Dogs can prove incredibly useful for keeping them out of the way until you need them next. It’s important that clothes are stored correctly, so that they will all be in perfect condition when you come to wear them again. Here are some of our top tips for storing winter clothing…

  1. Make sure they’re clean

It may sound obvious but before you store your clothes in Store That Self Storage E14, you must ensure that they are clean and dry. Any food particles, dirt or perspiration can stain over a long period of time and can become very tricky to remove.

  1. Should I vacuum pack?

If you’re looking to make the most of the space in your Self Storage units, then vacuum packing is a great way of doing so. However over long periods, this method of packaging could cause damage to clothes, as the material needs air to retain structure and integrity. For a few weeks or months, vacuum packing is great, however for longer storage periods, it may be best to avoid it.

  1. Use plastic containers

It’s important not to use plastic bags or cardboard boxes when storing fabrics or clothes, and instead opt for airtight plastic containers. These will keep your clothes dry and prevent any damage caused by decomposition of bags or cardboard.

  1. Plan your packing order

To prevent your clothes from getting squashed when kept in Store That Self Storage E14, it’s important to ensure your unit is packed correctly. Store your heaviest items at the bottom and lighter ones on top, so that you don’t alter the shape of your garments. It is also a good idea to use rails for hanging clothes on, covered by dust sheets, so that delicate items don’t get creased.
