Ditch dirty newsprint for packing paper when wrapping dishes. Use cardboard pieces to separate pieces in stacks and don’t forget to bundle items for added strength.


Remove all lids and stack in groups using paper and cardboard to separate. Wrap together in bundles. Fill your medium size boxes with packing peanuts or stuff empty spaces with hand towels for added support.


Use several sheets of tissue paper to wrap each item individually. Pack glasses in wine shipping cell boxes or sheets of cardboard to create a shell around the glass.


Wrap folded bundles of towels in plastic bags and place into fabric shopping totes that close shut, or use a large moving box. You can also use hand towels and other linens as padding inside your moving boxes for an eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative.

Cutlery & Utensils Pack your cutlery and utensils in bundles of 4-6 pieces. All pieces should settle into one another. Wrap in plastic wrap to prevent dirtying and store in small labeled boxes that can be placed into a small moving box.

Cleaning Supplies

Do not pack any liquid, aerosol, or chemical cleaners. These are not safe for transportation long distances. Feel free to pack any brushes, sponges, rags, and other tools. A medium sized moving box works best. For the taller items such as mops or brooms, wrap items in cardboard sheets and secure with packing tape.


Store small appliances in carefully packed medium size moving boxes. How to pack most appliances, including large appliances, can be found here in our How to Pack Electronics for Moving section.
