STORING YOUR WINTER BEDDING
TIPS FOR STORING WINTER BEDDING
- Be sure to wash
Start by washing your bedding and making sure it’s clean before you put it away. This is essential when it comes to proper bedding care, and it will ensure that your bedding looks great when you pull it out next time.
- Find a place to store
Rather than shove your newly-cleaned bedding into a storage space in the attic or garage, consider purchasing a cushioned storage bench to place at the end of your bed. If you`re especially crafty, you can create a functional and stylish storage space yourself. This will appear to be an extra piece of useful furniture in your bedroom, but it also serves as a storage unit for your winter bedding. By adding a cushion to your craft project, you can sit at the end of your bed to finish getting ready in the morning.
- Invest in vacuum bags
Vacuum bags will help you save space as you store your extra pillows for the winter. Vacuum bags will eliminate all excess air, allowing the pillows and other bedding items to compress. You can seal it shut, and easily store it in a closet or underneath your bed for the rest of the year.
- Plastic storage bins with lids
Use plastic storage bins with lids to keep your bedding items protected throughout the year. This is an ideal option if you do not have room for a storage bench and you don’t have a linen closet in your home. Plastic storage bins with lids will keep out water, mold, and mildew, and will effectively help you store your winter bedding during the off-season.
