How to Store Baby Items


Children are known to grow very quickly. This will often result in an abundance of clothing and baby accessories that you child has recently outgrown. Many want to keep these items for a future baby or for a family friend. Storing these items at Elite Storage in Lafayette, CO can ensure the safety and quality of your baby items. We offer a variety of storage units in order to make sure you get exactly what you need. We have also provided you with some tips on storing those special baby accessories so they are ready to be used again.



It is important to wash all clothing before placing it in storage. This way no old food particles left on the clothing will attract any unwanted guests. Make sure the clothes are completely dry before placing them in storage as to prevent mildew. Depending on how long you plan on storing the clothing will determine what you should place the clothing in. For short term storage a standard cardboard box will be more than sufficient. If you are planning are storing for long-term it is wise to store the clothing in a plastic bin or bag that seals tightly. Remember to store in an organized fashion. Sort clothing by age and size to make it easier when you come back to remove the clothing from storage.



Cleaning and even polishing your furniture will ensure its quality during its time in the storage unit. To fit more in the space of your storage unit disassemble any and all the furniture you can. It is easier to store smaller pieces of furniture rather than large, bulky items. Once you have your furniture placed desirably in the storage unit, cover it with a large sheet or packing blanket. This will protect it from dirt, dust, and other potential spills or hazards. If possible do not store furniture items on the floor. Prop up the furniture by placing it on a pallet, bricks, or a tarp. This will ensure the safety of your belongings.



Children outgrow toys as fast as they do clothing. It is smart to go through your child’s toy box every few months and organize. After sorting through and figuring out what to toss or donate, you can keep the sentimental pieces in storage. Again, we recommend that you clean the toys thoroughly with soapy water to remove any excess food or dirt. Plastic bins will be needed for long term storage of toys. This will keep them in pristine shape when you are ready to part with them.



As your child grows, so will their belongings. This doesn’t mean you need to part with all of it all at once. Elite Storage in Lafayette, CO can provide you with the perfect storage unit to keep all of your baby accessories safe. For more information on our storage units please call us today.
