Don’t Freeze this Winter: Get Your Winter Coats from Self Storage
As the season changes from fall to winter, it’s time to start thinking about pulling out your winter coats from self storage. While we may not get a lot of snow in the south, temperatures do drop below freezing, and staying warm is essential during the winter months. We have a few tips on how to care for your coat after it has been stored for a year.
1. Check the Condition of Your Coat
Before putting on your coat, it’s important to check that it’s in good condition after months of storage. Look for any signs of damage, such as holes or tears, and make sure the stitching is intact. Give it a good inspection before wearing it to avoid any unpleasant surprises.
2. Steam or Iron to Remove Wrinkles
After being in storage for months, your coat may have some wrinkles. A quick fix is to use either a steamer or iron to remove them. This will also freshen up your coat and make it look like new. Just be sure to check the care label beforehand to ensure you don’t damage the fabric.
3. Clean Your Coat
It’s a good idea to clean your coat before wearing it to remove any dust or other debris that may have accumulated in storage. However, always check the care instructions before cleaning and avoid using harsh chemicals or methods that can damage the fabric.
4. Straighten Up Your Self Storage Unit
While you’re at your storage unit, take the opportunity to quickly straighten up and organize it. This will make it easier to find things in the future and ensure everything is in good condition.
5. Prepare Your Coat for Future Storage
Lastly, if you plan to store your coat again, make sure to prepare it for storage. This includes cleaning it thoroughly, packing it in a breathable garment bag.
Preparing your winter coats for wear and organizing your self storage unit doesn’t have to be a daunting task. With a little effort and attention, you can ensure your coats are ready to keep you warm during the winter months and your self storage unit is well-organized for easy access in the future. Don’t procrastinate any longer; it’s time to get your winter coats out of self storage!
