Stay Cozy and Warm: Retrieve Your Coats from Self Storage
As the season changes from fall to winter, it’s time to start thinking about pulling out your heavier coats from self storage to keep yourself warm during these colder months. While we may not get a lot of snow here in the south, the temperatures can still drop below freezing and it’s essential to stay warm. In this blog post, we’ll go over how to retrieve your winter coat from self storage and get it ready for wear.
1. Prepping Your Coat for Winter Wear
If your coat has been in storage for a while, it’s likely to be wrinkled. To get rid of any wrinkles, hang your coat up and let it sit in your bathroom while you shower. The steam from the shower should loosen any wrinkles and allow the coat to relax and look fresh. Next, give it a gentle shake to make sure any dust or debris is removed.
2. Cleaning Your Coat
If you notice any stains or marks on your coat, try to spot clean them with a mild detergent. If your coat is dirty beyond spot cleaning, take it to a professional cleaner to prevent any damage to the material. Read the tags, and your garment may be able to go into the washer for faster cleaning.
3. Straightening Up Your Unit
While you’re still at the storage facility, take a moment to organize and straighten up your unit. This will help you quickly find what you need next time you visit. Make sure to stack your bins and boxes neatly and quickly tidy up the place.
4. Proper Storage Techniques
When bringing your coat back to storage, make sure to store it properly. Use a hanger to prevent any wrinkles and make sure it’s away from any potential moisture or dust. Consider using a garment rack and a dust cover to keep it protected until you need to retrieve it again.
As the colder months approach, it’s essential to keep yourself warm with proper winter clothing. Retrieving and properly storing your winter coat may seem like a simple task, but it’s important to take the time to do it correctly to ensure it lasts you for many winters to come.
