How To Pack Dishes?

When it comes to packing dishes, there are many types of cardboard boxes that you can get. There is a special type of cardboard box especially for packing dishes, but they can be expensive. There is another way in which you can pack your dishes. You will need a few things for it that include packing paper, cardboard boxes, packing tape, and a marker. The most important item that you need is bubble wrap, or you can use old newspapers. Bubble wrap provides more safety, but if the newspaper is used correctly, it can also provide the same amount of safety as bubble wrap.

Extra space inside the boxes is considered a good thing but not when it comes to dishes. As dishes are sensitive and fragile, the less space there is inside the box, the better. It needs to be compact so that there is no excess movement of the dishes that can lead to damage. Take a plate and bubble wrap it properly. You can also stack the plates with bubble wrap in between. When you are using a newspaper, it is better to stack four dishes together and pull the corners of the paper over the plate to ensure that it is perfectly wrapped. Put them in the box securely and make sure they are compact, and there is no extra space in the boxes. Take the marker and label the box in case you forget the box carrying dishes.

How To Pack Glasses?

Glasses are fragile and harder to pack than dishes and plates. As there are glasses of multiple sizes, you should first arrange them according to size. The basic concept is to put the heavy items on the bottom and light and more fragile on top for better safety. The bottom items can include heavy glass mugs and trays. You need to properly wrap all the glasswares by putting packing material in the box, both at the bottom and the top. Besides this, you also need to wrap all the items individually. Glasses are fragile and expensive items, and you cannot risk their safety. Better be safe than sorry.

Take a sheet of packing paper and put your glass on top of it. Crumble the packing paper and put it inside the glass. Wrap the stem and handle of the glass with packing paper. In the end, take a big packing paper and securely wrap the whole of the glass. In this way, you can easily pack a glass that will be safe during your move. Moreover, when a box of glass is packed, put the box inside another big box padded with papers inside it to ensure more safety of the glasses.
