Now that the holiday season is over it is finally time to put away all of your decorations. In order to keep them in pristine shape for next year you will want to make sure you are storing your decorations properly. Placing them in a storage unit at Elite Storage in Lafayette will ensure their safety and quality during their stay. Below we have gathered some preparation tips you can follow in order to properly store your holiday decorations.


Storing Linens

Before you store you holiday themed linens, such as tablecloths, blankets, tree skirts, etc. you will want to make sure they are clean. One way to store your holiday linens is in a suitcase, to keep away the risk of moisture damage. To keep away moths and keep your linen smelling wonderful, you can put one or two lavender scented dryer sheets between the linens.


Storing Artificial Trees

While it may seem like a good idea to continue storing your artificial tree in the box it came in, you may want to reconsider. Try a commercially available Christmas tree bag or Christmas tree box to protect your tree. There are also convenient tree bags with wheels, big and strong storage bags for large trees, and bag sets that split up the weight of the tree. This will protect your tree from moisture and unwanted guests.


Storing Ornaments

If you can, save the boxes that your ornaments came in. These are made specifically to hold each ornament so they won’t get damaged. If the box has already been tossed there is no need to worry. You can also store smaller ornaments in clean and dry egg cartons. Plastic ornaments that are not fragile may also be stored in plastic sandwich bags and tightly organized in a box or bag. Additionally, there are nifty containers and storage boxes available to neatly and securely store holiday ornaments in, which can help to especially protect fragile or glass decorations.


Storing Lights

When prepping your lights for storage you will want to take the time to make sure they don’t become tangled and broken mess for next year’s festivities. First, make sure to dispose of any lights that have been damaged or are not working properly. Then, you can wrap holiday lights around coffee cans, cardboard pieces, Pringles cans, or even a handy-dandy hanger. Conveniently package these in a large box, bag, or container for the next year.
