It’s officially Winter in Boston!
Here are some Winter Storage Tips in Boston.
After a dismal 2015-16 winter for skiers in the Boston area, this season seems to be a much different story. With many New England ski resorts with over 10 feet of natural snow so far this year, it’s officially winter.
Remember, when bringing in your seasonal storage not to disturb a hibernating bear.
The act of disturbing a hibernating bear can be very detrimental to the health of the animal. Not to mention your health too. So, when you are bringing in your Holiday decorations, golf clubs and patio furniture, make sure not to wake any hibernating animals.
Your storage unit is a perfect place for a slumbering bear. Somewhere between your Mom’s stacks of Life Magazine, and the Bow Flex, could be a hibernating bear. Grab your skis slowly, and do not make much noise. Close the door, and don’t come back until Spring.
Keep your clothes fresh with dryer sheets.
Storing a box of clothes? A cedar lined closet helps, but for a quick and easy way to keep that fresh linen scent, add a dryer sheet your boxes of clothes. I prefer to use garment boxes, or wardrobe boxes for clothes storage. Keep jackets, and shirts on hangers, allowing your clothes to ‘breath’ while in storage.
Store mattresses flat.
Just spent a couple grand on a mattress? They were designed and manufactured to be in the horizontal position. If you are storing for more than 6 months, I recommend storing your mattress flat, to avoid gravity pulling the components to one side. Check out some more interesting mattress information here.
