Arrow How To Store Inflatables & Keep The Smell
After a while the smell of the inflatable tends to go away. A huge turn on for me and my wife is also the smell. How do you keep the smell to the inflatables?

Weíd to put our inflatables in a plastic box. But unfortunately because of the humid here, it seemed they attracted some mold, which is a not so pleasent smell. Iím not sure if the plastic box was actually sealed.

The inflatables I store in a colder & dark area seem to keep their smell way longer, and of course doesnít attract mold.

How do you do it?

After I buy some large plastic boxes from wherever, upon getting them home I give them a good wash (both box and lid) with water and detergent to get rid of that goo layer that seems to be on everything inside a shop, dry with a fresh clean dry towel, remove every piece of moisture possible. Then when completely dry, place inflatables in, and make sure lid is sealed tight to keep any dust or mould out. I live in a mixed climate that SYdney is, hot and humid during summer, dry and cold during winter, so I guess whatever I've done seemes to have worked successfully. With the actual inflatables, I also give them a clean before deflation and storing. It only takes one small spud of mould to grow into a problem, so I pretty much make sure everything is clean and dry before putting away.

I have never really tried to preserve the smell of the inflatable but most of mine are in a box. The lilo that I brought back home from holiday at Christmas time seems to have kept its smell. Due to amount of space I have I store some inflatables that I donít use often in a vacuum sealed bag. This would keep the inflatables smell as itís sealed.
