    I used inexpensive paper plates between larger plates and coffee filters between smaller plates and dishes. Liquor stores will give you boxes; some have handy dividers for smaller odd items. Do not use newspapers! Print ink may transfer to white dishes or china.

    For plates, I use packaging paper from moving companies. You can also use some of your dish towels too and handle two things at once!

    Each time I have moved, I used washcloths, hand towels, and used bath towels (for large or unusual shaped pieces). Instead of packing just one thing, I am able to accomplish more.

    I have never broken a dish yet just using newspaper and wrapping it like a package and stacking the dishes in a box. I have also used the washcloths, hand towels and bath towels to wrap them.

    Hello Bettye, I have had great success wrapping plates in newspapers before packing them into a box, then mark the box as FRAGILE - Plates. Hope this helps

    I would use a heavy cardboard box and wrap each dish with bubble wrap and bubble wrap between the dishes.
