|Many people performing a do-it-yourself move tend to use their bedding items as
cushioning for some of their other belongings. However, if you don't want them
to get dirty or damaged, you'll need to pack them in their own boxes.
What You'll Need
Unlike many of the other
items you have in your home, packing your bedding (blankets, pillows, sheets,
comforters, and towels) is pretty easy. In order to start packing, you'll need
the following materials:
- Medium or large boxes
- Stack of packing paper
- Roll of packing tape
- Permanent marker
How To Pack BeddingOnce you have the proper packing materials assembled, you can get started on packing up
your bedding. Prepare by lining the bottom and sides of a box with packing
paper. There is no need to create extra cushioning for your bedding, and doing
so will just take up valuable space. A single layer will prevent the items from
getting soiled during the move.
You should always place the heaviest and
largest items, like comforters and quilts, on the bottom of the box. As you put
each item in the box, press down on it to remove air. This will compress the
bedding and allow you to fit more into each box. Continue to fill each box with
your remaining pillows, blankets, sheets, and towels.
When you have
filled the box, put an additional sheet of packing paper on the top. Then, close
the flaps and seal the box shut with tape. Finally, label the box with the contents and destination, and your
bedding will be ready to make the trip to your new home.
