Kitchen Packing: How to Pack Glasses

Glassware Packing 101

Don’t know how to pack glasses? The procedures are fairly straightforward.
Drinking Glasses: Ordinary drinking glasses require slightly different techniques. If you recall our previous article, packing your kitchen, all you need to do is wrap one up and set it in. Unlike plates, glasses go in the box like they do in the cupboard; you can have them right-side-up or upside-down, just as long as they are not sideways.

Wine Glasses/Stemware/China: Wine glasses and other stemware should be packed with extra precaution. I recommend packing them in their own box (probably a small 1.5) and noting that they be “Top Load Only” meaning that it shall be placed on top of the heavier boxes. Additionally, these boxes should be labeled "fragile" on all sides in big, bold letters.
