How to Pack Cutlery When Moving House

  • Firstly you will need to prepare a small box, ensuring it is securely taped together well on the bottom.

  • If you choose you can line the box with a towel or scrunched up newspaper.

  • Get a stack of packing or butchers paper (or foam wrap) and place it on the bench top. Never newspaper as the ink is likely to rub off onto your cutlery.

  • Now get your knives and place them at one end of the paper, gently fold the sides over so as not to pierce a hole in the paper, then roll up your knives folding in the sides as you roll.

  • Repeat with forks, spoons etc. Keep each package as only knives, only forks etc

  • I you have a lot of any item of cutlery you may want to separate out into appropriate sized bundles. i.e. 2 bundles of knives, 2 bundles of spoons etc

  • Use a piece of tape to secure each package.

  • If you want you can label each packages contents.

  • Repeat the same process for other cooking utensils.

  • Once you have placed all the parcels in your box, you can fill in gaps with scrunched up newspaper or a towel.

  • Tape up the lid of the box.

  • Remember to label your box so it's easy to find in your new home.
