Storing comforters

Doing animal rescue I find I must change comforters often- and I end up either pushing them into my small linen closet- or keeping on my dresser- I'm trying to figure out a way to store them- with easy access- that would be neater and not so messy- any ideas?

    Ziploc makes really large storage bags, and they work similar to those space bags advertised on TV. You could fold them to fit and squeeze the air out.

    I use the extra large storage zip bags from Dollar Tree to store all mine in. I also place a dryer sheet in with them and store in my basement. Keeps them handy and smelling fresh.

    I have 9 rescues (cats) so I just put a spare sheet over the top of my bed. do you any storage area that you could use such as a basement or attic? If you do just make sure that you add cedar balls to a large plastic bin or something else equally nice smelling. If you have room in you bedroom you could add a cedar chest at the bottom of your bed like I do. Good luck Linda & let us know how you make out!

    only issue with that is still- where would I put them? Indeed, I have to change them about 2 times per week- 'shamed to say!

    Unfortunately- I have a senior spayed female hound who sneaks up on beds and pees right thru to the mattress in deep sleep- I've got the mattresses covered but have to keep changing the darn sheets and comforters- she doesn't do it always- but she gets into periods where she does it- and inevitably I'll forget to close a door! Get into bed- ah yes - then OH NO!!!

    put an old shower curtain under a old blanket or go to medical supply store and buy disposable chucks that they use in hospitals and the urine won't leak all the way down to. The mattress.

    Hey thanks! Gonna do that- in the meantime I think I'm going to buy an old dresser and paint it and hopefully I won't have to change them so much- but if I do----- Linda

    Store them under your bed...

    Space bags- uses a vaccum/shop vac to pull the air out-reducing space required. then under the bed works fine

    @Linda Dann you might also want to consider putting the old girl in dog diapers at night, it will really cut down your laundry, and make life easier.
