How To Store Blankets & Quilts

Before storing your blankets and quilts, make sure they are clean and completely dry. Any moisture left on the fabric can lead to mold or mildew growth during storage.

Next, you will want to choose an appropriate container or bag depending on where you plan on storing your blankets and quilts. For instance, it is recommended to use a plastic tote if you plan to store your cozy bedding near the floor.

To maximize storage space and ensure the shelf-life of your cloth items it is recommended that you vacuum seal blankets and quilts and then store the vacuum sealed bags inside of a waterproof tote.

Self-Storage Tip: Add a few dryer sheets into the tote, and between bags to help deter pests. DO NOT allow dryer sheets to come into  direct contact with the linen as dryer sheets are known to create oil stains on fabrics when they sit for even a short period of time.

When placing your items in the self storage unit, consider utilizing shelves or racks if available. This will help prevent any potential damage from moisture, and pests.

By following these guidelines when storing your blankets and quilts in a self storage facility, you can ensure their safety while maximizing space efficiency within your unit. Remember to periodically check on your stored items to ensure they remain in good condition throughout their time in storage.

Bonus Tip: For In-Home Storage opt for breathable materials such as cotton or linen bags that allow air circulation while protecting against dust. Avoid using plastic bags which can trap moisture and potentially damage the fabric.
