High humidity and extreme temperatures can damage electronics, such as TVs, computers, and gaming systems. In addition, paint cans, propane tanks, and cleaning supplies can become hazardous when left unattended or exposed to high temperatures.

Storing Non-Folding Camping Chairs by Stacking and Covering

In the off-season, store non-folding camping chairs by stacking and covering them. Thus, they will be kept organized, will save space, and will be protected from dust and stains. The following tips will help you stack and cover non-folding camping chairs:

Stacking Chairs

Stacking Camping Chairs

Cleaning non-folding camping chairs with a damp cloth first will prevent them from stacking. Staple the chairs together with their legs facing inward once they have been cleaned. Keeping the legs intact while saving space will prevent damage.

Don’t stack too many chairs on top of each other as they can become crushed. When stacking chairs, try to stack no more than four or five at once.

Covering Chairs

Covering Camping Chairs

Cover your stacked chairs with a durable material like polyester or vinyl once they’re stacked. You should be able to cover all of the chairs completely with the cover.

You can keep your chairs clean by using a quality cover that will protect them from dust, dirt, and moisture. Make sure the cover is tightly secured around the bottom of the chair stack to keep it from blowing away in very strong winds.

Using cinder blocks or pallets will lift your covered chair stack off the ground if it’s being stored outdoors for an extended period of time. Mold growth can be prevented by preventing moisture buildup under the covers.
