Packing paper/plain newsprint

Used to wrap everyday items to prevent scratching; when crunched up it can be used as cushioning

Tissue paper

Softer than newsprint, used for wrapping very delicate items; also provides cushioning and fills in small spaces when packing fragile figurines and china

Bubble wrap

Plastic packing material made up of hundreds of tiny “air cushions” or bubbles used to over-wrap small, delicate items after they are wrapped in tissue; also helpful when wrapping larger fragile items such as lamps and pictures

Pink anti-static bubble wrap

Used to wrap electronics including stereos and computers. It is similar to traditional bubble wrap but does not cause static electricity. If traditional bubble wrap is used to pack these items, a static electric charge could be created, damaging the item.

Duck® tape/Sealing tape

Plastic tape, 1.5 inches (3.81 cm) to 2 inches (5.08 cm) wide; best for packing, test to see if it ruins finish before taping up drawers and canisters. Use clear Duck® packing tape only and make sure to seal your boxes with packing tape. Duct tape doesn’t adhere well to corrugated cardboard. Boxes put together with duct tape will fall apart.

Permanent marker

Used to label boxes with contents and destination in new location; mark boxes “fragile” and “this side up” when appropriate

Resealable plastic bags

Used for nuts and bolts as you disassemble items, tape bag to disassembled item

Beware of used boxes

People sometimes try to pack their belongings in used boxes to save money. Beware: Produce boxes often become weakened from the moisture of transportation or product spoilage. Additionally, insects often nest in used boxes.
