How to Store Bedding in Between Seasons
How to Store Bedding in Between Seasons
There is nothing more satisfying than to have the proper seasonal bedding. Being wrapped in a warm and snuggly blanket during the cold is heavenly, almost as much as a thin bed sheet caressing your skin during those warm months of the year.
Every season has its own needs when it comes to adapting your bedding, and luckily there are options available to us all. Temperature regulation is a key element for a good night's sleep, and the bedding you use in winter might not be the best choice for summer.
But what should you do with those warm covers when it's too warm outside, or those fresh sheets when it's too cold? Store them! Storing bedding has a lot of advantages that people take for granted. It is a great way to protect and prolong the lifespan of your bedding supplies.
In this blog, we’ll provide some tips and steps on how to properly store comforters and sheets in the best way possible.
To store or to throw?
Before getting ready to properly store your bedding supplies, there is a question you must consider. Has the bedding run its course? Are you holding on to extra bedding you no longer need?
When a new season approaches and it’s time to change the bedding, you may use that time to reflect upon the quality and state of your supplies. Has this bed sheet set seen better days? Is this duvet worth storing?
A new season may be a great opportunity to renew your bedding which could also save storage space you might use for more worthy equipment.
Long term or short term storage?
Once you’ve decided on what will be stored, there is another question that you should consider before storing, and this question is about accessibility.
Are you storing for a long period of time or do you need to keep your off-season bedding accessible just in case you need it before expected?
This is an important question and depending on the answer, you might have to look for a storage spot that’s more accessible or change the container you’ll use.
To keep it safe, keep it clean
Once you are settled on the bedding articles that you’ll be keeping and storing, the actual process begins.
The first thing you have to do is take proper care of the hygiene of your bedding. Storing dirty bedding spells for disaster.
Store sheets only after they are properly washed and completely dry. Be sure to check for stains and always follow the care instructions on the package.
A safe place
One aspect of a storing system that can’t be overlooked is where you’ll be storing your bedding. This is the place that will hold the articles you choose to keep, and in order to keep your bedding neat, it must have a favorable context.
Ideally you should choose a spot that is dry and allows for air circulation. The idea is to avoid moisture and bugs, or any possible threat that can jeopardize the integrity of your bedding. Dryer sheets might come in handy to keep your bedding fresh and bug free.
Choose the best container
Once you have your ideal spot, the next thing you have to consider is the container. There are more containers than you think and you definitely don't have to settle for a plastic bag. It is important to keep your bedding supplies well protected while stored.A great way to ensure this is through a proper container that keeps them safe and sound.
There are multiple containers to choose from and the best option is always in relation to the storage situation.
If your storage spot is in an unfriendly environment, like an attic or a basement, you should choose a sturdy container like a heavy duty plastic container.
If you have a more amicable storage spot like a linen closet or a drawer for extra blankets, fabric storage containers are a good bet.
Another option to keep in mind if your storage space is limited or you have bulky bedding is the use of vacuum sealed bags. These bags are great at reducing the amount of occupied space, maximizing storage potential. They are a great bedding storage solution!
Regardless of how you store your bedding supplies, the quality of your bedding is of the utmost importance. High quality products will always keep better and tend to have longer life-spans.
