Tips and tricks to store winter clothes

winter clothes

There may still be a chill in the air, but it’s time to start peeling back the layers and preparing our wardrobes for summer. So, how should you store your winter clothes during this time?

From trying to balance bulky sweaters on hangers to bunching up woolly knits and jackets in the dresser, it can be quite the challenge. While some of these warm items can be stored in your closet or drawers, you may need to make a bit of extra space.

As a guideline, consider the following tips and tricks to store winter clothes.

Decide which warm clothes to keep handy

Even though the worst of winter is behind us, there will still be a few frosty days in the future. Decide on which warm items you may need in the months to come and set them aside. Make sure that these items are versatile and comfortable so that they can be used in various circumstances.

Wash and dry winter items

It’s important to wash and dry your winter items before packing them away, making sure that they are clean and fresh when you take them out again in a year. A proper wash will get rid of stains and odours, ensuring that they don’t attract pests or insects. It’s also a good idea to repair or mend any damaged items before packing them away.

Use plastic storage bins

Using plastic storage bins to store your winter clothes has a number of benefits. Firstly, they are airtight, ensuring that the items are protected from moisture and pests. Secondly, they are stackable, so you can save on space. Finally, they are easy to clean, which is important when storing clothes that may not be used for a while.

Consider the specific item

Certain items need to be stored in a specific way. While you should store a winter coat on a hanger, thick winter knits keep their shape better when folded in a drawer. If you do hang your items, make sure that you use quality hangers that don’t impact the shape of the garment.

Extend the home

One way to ensure that you have enough space to store your winter clothes is to rent a storage unit. This will give you an extra room in which to keep your clothes, without taking up any extra space in your home. Storage units are also a great way to protect your clothes from pests and moisture, making sure that they stay in good condition throughout summer.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
