Hi Mamas! Quick question. I'm not yet preggo , we're trying but it just isn't going as quickly as planned if you kwim. To keep myself busy & occupied I have been stocking up on diapers. Now will these all be in great condition if this takes a year or longer to happen.? Should I be storing them a certain way? I have them in a rubbermaid tub now. I haven't washed them at all or anything just hold them & such!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Should I be storing wools seperate from CPF's or covers?<br><br>
Any input would be great!<br>
Thank you!!!

You may want to take them out of that Rubbermaid so that the fibers can breathe. Package them in a breathable container of some sort. Also, don't store them in an overly hot place (attic, garage, etc. . . ) but in a drawer, cabinet, etc. . . wool can be stored with cedar chips to ward off moth larvae eating on them.<br><br>
For more on storing wool (and natural fibers, in general)<br><br><a href="http://www.thediaperhyena.com/woolscool.htm" target="_blank">go here</a> and scroll down to the last section on 'Storing.' <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Ok great! I have a lined basket that I can put them in the "baby's closet " along with some cedar chips in there. Will all my covers & cpfs & such still be in good condition?<br><br>

Yes, they should be. We stored ours from Meredith to Kenny with no problems in an extra closet in our house. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
