Looking for some quick tips for packing dishes? Watch this short video!
The first and most important part to your packing process it to have sturdy, cardboard boxes for your kitchen items. The boxes must be strong enough to hold multiple items; however it is recommended not to use large boxes to hold glassware or dishes. Large boxes could get very heavy and easily break when stacked with other boxes. The best idea is to get smaller boxes or boxes specifically designed with dividers for glassware. Once you have gathered all of these supplies, then you can follow the steps below to learn how to pack your everyday dishes and special occasion plates and bowls.
When packing dishes for moving or storage, start off by lining a box with packing material such as bubble wrap or newsprint. Make sure that the entire bottom and sides of the box are covered.
Use newspaper, newsprint or bubble wrap to pack your plates and bowls. Use bubble wrap to wrap more delicate dishes. Once you get to your new home, wash the plates and bowls before putting them in their prospective cabinets or before your first use.
Do not over-pack the dish boxes. Dishes can get very heavy and can easily cause boxes to break. Remember to stack the heavier boxes at the bottom of the stack and the lighter boxes on top.
Leave at least one inch of space from the last layer to the top of the box for added packing material.
Store boxes with more delicate dishes on top of heavier boxes to prevent breakage. Also, make sure to stack like-size boxes together.
Label each box with the contents and create an overall inventory list, so you know where to look for the items if you need them.
