4 Life Hacks For Storing Clothes At Brock University Once The Term is Over

When winter finally begins to ease up at Brock University, it’s easy to caught up in enjoying the warmer weather. While it’s great to get out of the house into the warming weather, though, it’s important to remember that winter will be back again. That’s why you need to make sure you pack your winter clothes, heavy blankets, etc. properly so they’re ready to go come next year.

Here are four simple tips to make sure you have minimal fuss when the term does come to an end.

Tip #1: Keep It Clean

It’s just common sense to make sure your clothes are clean before you put them in storage, but that cleanliness extends to everything. You need to make sure your clothes have been washed or dry-cleaned, and you need to be certain the storage container is clean as well. Any sort of dirt or particulates can leave stains in your clothes, and they can attract bugs while the items are in storage.

Tip #2: Paper or Plastic?

When you’re storing your winter necessities it’s important to make sure you use the proper storage container. Plastic organizers can be used over and over again, provided that they’re clean and that they’re lined with some acid-free tissue to help keep moisture out. Cardboard boxes are a target for insects, but they’re fine to use as a short-term storage solution if you need one.

Tip #3: Don’t Hang If You Can Avoid It

Whether it’s your favorite sweater, or a knit dress, keep your heavy clothes off the hangers if you don’t want their weight to drag them out of shape. Always put these items in a container. It may be less convenient now, but it will save you a lot of time later.

Tip #4: Packing For The Season

While you should feel free to use a spare suitcase to pack your cold weather gear, you should also store your winter items in the most efficient way possible. That means rather than just folding them up and shoving them into a case, you should roll them up into tight cylinders. This will allow you to fit more items into a single container, and it will help avoid creases from being folded in a certain shape until the fall comes around.

You may be thinking about the end of term now, but don’t forget that when you come back is the premier off-campus living experience for students at Brock University! Contact us about renting for fall 2018.
