I just moved to Hawaii from SD and the side of the island i am on rains ALOT!<br><br>
I was wondering what I need to know about this type of climate and how to store my dipes until wash day.<br><br>
Anyone have any advice on what they do? I used to keep them in a dry pail for about 3 days before washing in SD but was wondering if that would be okay in humid climates. I am still in a hotel and havent started using the CDs yet...waiting to move into my house w/ a washer!<br><br>
Any advice is greatly appreciated!

I'm so jealous. My hubby is AD AF and I cannot convince him about Hickam. He spent two years in Okinawa and said he'll never live on an island again. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I guess I can always hope right? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"><br>
I dont' have a lot of advice but I just wanted to be jealous for a minute! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I'm guessing a dry pail would be fine but I hear that there are lots and lots of bugs and little reptiles there so you'd probably want a lid so as to keep the critters out. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> And you might have to wash more often in a humid climate to get them really clean and to account for longer drying time if you hang to dry. I don't know. Hopefully someone will have better advice.<br><br>

I'm on the east coast (1/2 from the shore) and it is mighty humid here too. I've always done a dry pail w/lid and it's worked fine. You have to wash by day 2-3 though or else you'll see some mold growing and lots of stink. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

meg - it is really nice here <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> but I rather be in San Diego...but I dont think this is as bad as Okinawa. There are quite a few things to do. I hope you get to come out someday!<br><br>

We get all 4 seasons here, so it's only hot in the summer..........sticky hot (up to 100 degrees). That's when the problems start..lol.
