How to pack winter accessories for storage

If you need to pack all your winter clothes and accessories for storage we have a few tips and tricks for you that might be helpful. All those winter items tend to be pretty bulky and take up a lot of space and you use them only once a year so it makes sense for them to be in a storage unit. But not all units are the same. Temperature-controlled units are the safest for storing clothes and accessories. You will be avoiding the risk of mold and mildew that can ruin all your stuff.

Preparing clothes and accessories for storage

Before anything else, you should wash all your stuff that will be going to the storage. Those items will be there for quite some time so you want them in the best shape before storing them. It would be smart to buy one of those scented little bags (lavender sachets) that will keep your clothes and accessories smelling nice for a long time. You can have tidy storage that also smells nice.
