Storing winter clothes away for Summer

As Somerset welcomes the warm embrace of summer, it’s time to rethink our wardrobes and make room for the light, airy attire that the season demands. Clear Space Self Storage is here to guide you through packing away those bulky winter clothes, ensuring your seasonal switch is as breezy as a Somerset summer day.

The joy of summer readiness

Transitioning your wardrobe for summer not only makes daily outfit selections easier but also protects your winter wear until it’s needed again. With the proper storage techniques, you can prevent damage and keep everything pristine for their next season in the spotlight.

Steps to pack away seasonal clothing safely

1. Clean before storing:

Begin by laundering or dry-cleaning all items you plan to store. Dirt and stains can set in over time, and some substances, if left on clothing, can cause deterioration of the fabric. Ensure everything is completely dry to prevent mould and mildew growth.

2. Choose the proper containers:

Opt for breathable, acid-free storage boxes for natural fibres to prevent yellowing and deterioration. Plastic containers with tight-fitting lids are ideal for synthetic fabrics. These protect your clothing from dust, moisture, and pests. 

3. Use protective coverings:

Consider adding a layer of protection with acid-free tissue paper for delicate items or those prone to wrinkling. For extra care, vacuum-sealed bags can reduce space and protect garments, but avoid using them for natural fibres that need air circulation.

4. Label everything:

Clearly label each container with its contents and the date. This organisation makes it easier to find what you need when the seasons change again, saving you time and effort.

5. Choose a cool, dry place for storage:

Temperature fluctuations and humidity can harm stored clothing. An ideal environment is cool, dry, and dark. Clear Space’s clean, dry indoor storage units in Shepton Mallet offer the perfect conditions, ensuring your seasonal clothing stays in top shape.
