Making space for those cute summer swimsuits and other clothing isn’t easy when you have winter wool keeping you locked down. Instead of limiting your amount of summer wear, it’s time to start using a better method which is investing in a climate controlled self storage unit!
Not only will these storage units help you free up some much needed space in your closet, but they’ll also help keep your wool clothing safe until it’s time to wear them again.
A climate controlled self storage unit keeps the wool clothing at a constant room temperature to prevent extreme temperatures from damaging the clothing. Plus, it’ll keep those pesky insects from nesting in your beautiful clothes.
All you have to do is follow these six easy steps to get your wool clothing ready for a long Summer.

Trying to pick and choose which clothing can stay in your closet can be a hard decision to make, but in the end you’ll be happy you did!
By minimizing the amount of clothing in your closets, you can begin to utilize the space for other items that will be used during the season! Rather than taking up much needed space for wool clothing that won’t be used until next winter.
To make sure that your climate controlled self storage keeps your items safe, it’s important that you wash all of your clothing before storing it away into bins. By washing your clothing before hand, your wool clothing will be ready to wear even after a long stay in a tightly sealed bin!
By folding your clothing into nice neat piles, it’s easy to see how containers you will need to use. During this step you’ll want to make sure that your clothing is stored away properly. You’ll want to pay attention to your containers and tightly they are able to seal. You may have to swap clothing into or out a container if things get too crowded!
Seal everything up tightly!
To keep wool clothing safe from dirt and insects like moths, it’s always best to seal everything in an air-tight storage container. It’s an imperative step because whatever method of moth prevent that you decided to use inside of the bin will protect your wool clothing.
