How to store Christmas light nets?

You can store your Christmas net lights by laying them flat and placing a long cylindrical object on them. You can then gently wrap the net lights around the cylinder.

You can buy a Christmas storage cylinder from light stores but mainly hardware stores. Or you can try to make your own with kitchen towel rolls or pringles containers or other similarly shaped objects.

The process of putting your Christmas net lights away includes certain steps or tips.

First, you should lay it out flat. This means that you will need to spread the lights out on a flat surface. The ends of the lights should be on one side or along a single axis.

All you need to do now is take the end that starts the plug. That would be the side where the plugs are attached. You then sit on the floor facing the plug end.

You then place your hand on each side of the plug and carefully pull it towards you by pulling it in “pleats”. Then you make sure that the lateral spread out part is now finally narrow enough to fold.

Once you do that, you pick one end of the lights and hold the stacked pile. Then you start rolling it towards the other end into a roll. You gather the pile up and then roll it.

Repeat this until the bunch of lights is a roll of lights. Make sure you gather everything up and then roll. 

And you should also make sure that the pile and the roll is done in a straight line and is not crumbling over one another.

Once you have rolled it, you will need to secure the roll. Take the end that gets attached to the switch and then the end that is normally attached to the other end.

Take the end that is attached to the other end and bring it across the middle. Take the switch end and pull that across the middle from the other direction.

Make sure to keep the switch end long enough to let it wrap around the roll. It is best secured that way. Once you wrap the roll, secure both ends by plugging on end into the other.

After that, you should get either a plastic bag, or the box the lights came in. or any other box of that size, and store it in a cool, dry place.
