Use Paper Towel Padding
Although plates and bowls aren’t as delicate as glasses, they can shatter during long trips to another city or state. We don’t have to tell you that even the slightest road bump can cause your dishware to crack in two, especially if you keep them stacked on top of each other.
But what you can do to keep your plates from cracking in twain is to pad each plate with several paper towel sheets. The extra padding will stop an upper plate from bashing into a lower plate, leaving them intact until you get to your new home.
