Beach supplies:

  • Make sure everything is completely dry before putting into your storage unit.
  • Give your belongings air to breathe and do not squish items together.

  • Satchels of dried lavender or dryer sheets can keep clothes smelling fresher.
  • It is important to be sure that all articles of clothing are dry and clean before storing.
