Batting storage

Recommended Posts

I haven’t posted in quite a while but we just moved to the Tucson area and my storage situation is different. I have always stored my big rolls of batting standing on end. Here it would be better if I could store them on their sides on big garage shelves. However it seems like a really bad idea as one side would get compressed. Has anyone ever successfully done this or should I just scrap the idea? 
Thanks

Dave,

Why not remove the shelves and install something like this with either a wood or aluminum rod so you can easily unroll the batting from the roll as needed.  https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-White-Heavy-Duty-Shelf-Bracket-and-Rod-Support-14317/206086899

You could also install this upside down, and put a bolt with a wing nut through the outer hole to hold the rod.  https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-18-in-x-16-in-White-Heavy-Duty-Shelf-Bracket-14835/202824731

I store my batting on the roll placed on the floor, with no issues.  

Best of luck to you coming up with a solution.  


May your threads be balanced, and your bobbin forever full….

Have you tried searching this forum?  There have been many storage ideas throughout the years.  Here's my favorite, easy to move and fairly cheap to make:
