The winters are here and they bring the festivities along. However, with the advent of winters, the summer essentials become redundant. Not just that you can’t use them, but they also take up a lot of space in your home. It’s time to make way for your winter clothes in your closet. But, to make that happen, all your summer clothes need to go. Our storage units in Tamworth can help you do that, but you need to take care before sending your “hotter than sun” summer clothes to the unit.
Here are some tips that will help you pack your summer wardrobe properly.
• Wash the clothes properly:Before packing the clothes for a send-off, make sure they are cleaned well. Dirty clothes have an affinity to attract rodents and that is not the best news for you or your clothes. Not just that, the dirt stains, if not washed, might stay there for an eternity harming the fabric even more. It is best to wash the clothes as per the instructions and dry them out properly before packing them.
• No plastic bags or cardboard: When it comes to packing clothes, air tight plastic containers are the best option around. These containers keep clothes dry and inhibit the fungal growth that might take place. Also, make sure the plastic containers are clean and dry. Once you have got clean and dry plastic containers, line them up with clean cotton sheets to give that extra security to the clothes. While we are at it, we request you not to use cardboard boxes to store clothes if you don’t want to feed the clothes to rodents and termites.
• Temperature plays a role: The environment and conditions have a major role to play in storage units. If experts are to be believed, a maximum temperature of 23°C and humidity of 55% is best suited for storing clothes. Though these don’t matter if the place is super clean, it would be beneficial to you. The right temperature makes sure your clothes don’t shrink or get harmed in any way. Our storage units in Tamworth are climate-controlled and you can relax about the well-being of your summer clothes.
• Keep checking: All said and done, it is important that you keep checking the clothes every once in a while. It will help you in noticing the abnormalities in the stored clothes as well as give you an assurance. Keeping your summer clothes doesn’t need a lot of effort, but a little awareness goes a long way. Checking them in a regular interval gives you room to save them before they are spoiled.
