Since the outer core of the silicone is soft, if anything presses against the soft material, it could leave behind indentations. Depending on their size, VixSkin dildos come in either a clear cylindrical tube with plastic end caps or a plastic clamshell container. Both types are great to keep for storage to ensure that nothing can press against the soft material. (The smaller and regular-sized dildos come in the tube while the larger ones with balls come in a clamshell container.)
Vixen Creations also recommends storing their VixSkin dildos standing upright. I'm not sure why, but I think it is to help them keep their shape better (though it is hard to imagine how they could lose their shape as they do NOT seem fragile). Some people do not bother to store them upright though, and they have not reported any problems. I personally store mine standing upright in their containers because I love them too much to risk any changes to their shape (mine are all in a canvas tote inside their plastic containers, and I keep the canvas tote sitting upright).
