Storing Items for Next Winter

Most of us have drawers full of bulky winter clothing. As spring approaches and the weather becomes milder, we will find ourselves using them less and less.  As this happens, we need to think about putting them away to keep them for next year.  Items need to be stored properly in order to prevent them being eaten by pests or suffering from damp conditions.  After having taken care of them all winter, it would be a shame to find that they are unusable next winter.

Woollen items such as scarves, hats, and winter gloves will all be susceptible to pests such as moths. Wrapping them in tissue paper and storing them with mothballs can be one way in which to prevent this.  Leather gloves can be wrapped in cloth too in order to help to keep them in the best condition.  Men’s and ladies thermal underwear should not just be pushed to the back of the drawer so that the summer items can sit at the front.  Opt for storage bags that can be sealed to prevent insects and moisture getting in.

In order to prevent damp, storage areas need to be kept well ventilated.  If possible, items should not be packed too tightly together.  This will allow the air to circulate.  Using silica gel in the area can also help to keep damp away from items.  For items which are to be stored in drawers, adding a sweet smelling bar of soap can help to keep the items smelling fresh throughout the year.

Getting Out and About in Winter

One thing we all need is fresh air.  There are times when we simply cannot stay cooped up in the house, no matter how bad the weather, but getting out and about is difficult if we cannot face the cold.  This is when it is worthwhile to have the right garments to help keep the cold out.  If we venture out into the cold without the help of thermal underwear and other winter weather items, we risk becoming extremely cold and requiring hours to warm up again properly.

There is a vast range of both men’s and ladies thermal underwear available.  This type of garment works by ‘wicking’, which means keeping the damp of perspiration away from the skin so that it does not dry on the skin and become cold.  However, it does not make the garment wet or cold.  Most of the thermal underwear available has been created from a blend of synthetic fibres that allow quick drying and therefore give the underwear a better thermal rating.

Add to this a good winter hat, scarf, and gloves and anybody is ready to venture outdoors.  Winter may not be the most appealing time of year for most people but there is still plenty to do outdoors whether walking the dog, taking the children to the park or just wandering around the shops.  A mantra for winter should be ‘think thermal’ so we can all enjoy this beautiful season.

If you enjoy outdoor pursuits such as hunting, camping and fishing, thermal underwear is an essential addition to your kitbag. Our mens’ thermal underwear long johns will keep your legs cosy and comfortable in the cold and allow for great flexibility, promoting blood circulation and preventing frostbite and chills. These long johns are perfectly complemented by our thermal underwear short sleeve t-shirts, which have a great thermal rating and can be worn underneath shirts and jumpers inconspicuously in the office, at sporting events or in any indoor or outdoor location.

Our men’s thermal trunks look like ordinary underpants and are just as comfortable, but they are amazingly warm and are a great item that, once worn, you will return to again and again. For the ultimate in cosiness and comfort, we suggest that you try a man’s thermal clothing all in one union suit which combines upper and lower body thermal underwear protection in one piece perfection.
