Commonly Stored Items

Bedding, Clothing, Curtains, Drapes and Linens:

  • Bedding, clothing, curtains, drapes, linens, and other fabric goods should be washed and dried prior to packing. Food crumbs or stains should be removed before storage and avoid storing anything that may attract pests.
  • Clothing, curtains and drapes should be stored on hangers. If hanging cartons are not available, such items should be carefully folded and stored in dresser drawers or cedar chests along with bedding and linens.
  • If storing wool items, use cedar ships or mothballs to prevent moth damage.
  • Use your dresser drawers when possible to store blankets, pillows, sheets, and drapes. Once in storage, it's best if you can hang them on hangers.
