We asked Julie Naylon, the professional organizer behind No Wire Hangers, to offer her expertise so your boots will be safely put away in your closet. See her tips now.
Clean and Repair Boots Before Storing Them
There's nothing worse than unpacking your boots after a long time in storage and finding them dirty or in bad condition. Instead, prep and store them in their best condition. Future you will be thankful.
Store With Charcoal Bags
Naylon explains that charcoal will absorb any moisture as well as odors. Not to mention that charcoal packets are eco-friendly!
Use Boot Boxes
Finally, keep your boots inside boot boxes. This way, they'll remain dust free and will be easy to stack on a high shelf when you're not using them.
