How to Pack Linens, Bedding and Curtains

Linens and Bedding

  • Blankets, sheets, tablecloths, towels, pillowcases and other linens may be protected by a large plastic bag and packed in a carton that has been lined with clean paper.
  • Wrap your most prized linens in tissue. Also, linens and bedding are good for cushioning or padding many types of items.
  • Special mattress boxes in various sizes are available from your moving company for a nominal charge. Pillows may be placed in bureau drawers or packed in boxes.

Draperies and Curtains

  • Clothing wardrobes are ideal for moving curtains and draperies. Fold them lengthwise, place over a padded hanger, pin securely and hang in the wardrobe.
  • Draperies and curtains may also be folded and packed in boxes lined with clean paper or plastic wrap.
