Packing & Moving Household Goods/Newsprint Problems

Beware of Newspaper PrintEdit

Newspaper print residue must be hand washed off of all things it touches; dishwasher washing will not take it off. Also, print residue can ruin porous items like clay pots or lampshades or items with a rough finish like computer equipment. Packer’s paper is newspaper without print. It can be purchased most economically at a mover’s supply warehouse and movers will also sell it to you.

One possible solution is to use clothing to wrap, protect and cover fragile items.
