A Guide to Storage Using Vacuum Storage Bags

Storing clothing, bed linen and towels needs to be done with care as things like damp and mould can destroy our belongings if we don’t take the time to store them carefully. However, finding spare space in our wardrobes and cupboards isn’t always easy and it is far better to store them in the loft or garage. The biggest problem with using a loft or garage for storage is the threat of damp and mould but there is a way to avoid this problem – by using specialist vacuum storage bags. You can buy vacuum storage bags online with ease through well-known websites like Amazon and you can store all kinds of items in these bags, including but not limited to the following:

  • Clothes like wedding outfits
  • Out of season duvets
  • Spare bed linen for guests
  • Extra pillows and pillow cases
  • Children’s clothing
  • Seasonal clothes like summer and winter outfits

You should look to invest in bags that have a double zip seal, as well as triple seal turbo valve as this will help to minimise the amount of air that leaks out if you want to store things long term.

These bags are easy to use and can be sealed simply by compressing them with a regular vacuum cleaner. In fact, they can save up to 80% more space when storing clothes or bed linen making them perfect if you live in a house that is short on space.

Here is a summary of the features you should look out for when buying these specialist bags:

  • Thick bags to avoid rips and tears
  • Made from heavy duty materials such as 100 Micron PA & PE
  • Easy to seal using a regular household vacuum cleaner
  • Designed to save space and keep clothing and bed linen fresh
  • The come in a variety of sizes making it easy to store anything from pillows and duvets to clothes

As well as being a great way to store clothes and bed linen, these bags are also designed to be used to store towels. From towels that you only use on a beach holiday and towels you use for swimming, through to spare towels for when guests stay over, it is really handy to be able to store them away in the loft or garage until you need to use them again. Anything that you don’t need on a regular basis can be stored away in these specialist bags, in order to save space.

When it comes to storing clothes, there are lots of things we have in our cupboards that we simply don’t need. What about your wedding dress? What do you do with your thick winter jacket in the summer? And why is your summer dress hanging in your wardrobe in the winter months? All of these things can be sealed into a bag and stored away and this can be a really handy way to free up some space, while still keeping things fresh.
