Do you prefer plastic or cloth bags to store each toy?

Sodom and Gomorrah Sodom and Gomorrah
I was wondering if it's better to store toys in those pretty cloth bags or if it fine to store it sandwich or ziplock bags. What are the best ways for storage? I would find it hard to just throw all the toys together in a storage box and possibly ruin my silicone toys.

I prefer cloth bags when I can, but it doesn't matter when you need to cover them.

I prefer cloth, but end up using plastic because it's more cost effective.

I don't really like cloth because it may attract lint.

I prefer plastic for everything but my glass. They are see through, cleaner for the most part, take up less room, and are easily replaceable. Cloth ones collect dust and for some toys stick to them. Once they are bagged they get thrown in a plastic tub.

We prefer the Ziplocs because it makes the toys easier to see when they're piled up. Plus we don't have to worry about the softer toys collecting lint from the bags.

I have found old tube socks make GREAT toy bags. I can even toss the batteries in the sock with the toy!

If the toy has an odd battery type I will bag it, or if it is silicon; but most of them just get tossed in the drawer

We store all of our 100% silicone toys loose in a large drawer. No baggies of any sort. They are free to mingle with each other all they want once the drawer closes. We've never had any issues storing them this way, but everything in the drawer is 100% silicone.

cloth and plastic are both fine but I prefer cloth, it just feels more luxurious and sometimes I use the packaging

I store each of my toys in their own fabric bag, and then they're all packed together in my lock box. So far, I've had no problems. You could also try organza wine bags, which are pretty cheap and can be found on eBay. Plastic is ultimately the cheapest option of all, though.

I bought organza bags on eBay and that is what I keep my things in if they don't come with their on bag.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. As a matter of fact, the storage containers are no longer big enough for my toys.

That's true! Since the plastic bags are see-through it's easier to go quickly through the toys to figure out which one you want.

Cool! I hadn't thought about that, but I do suppose that is a cost-effective approach!

That makes sense if everything is of silicone though.

I prefer plastic bags, even though they're not as fancy, because they keep my silicone toys from collecting lint.

Plastic is better for silicone or jelly because it doesn't attract lint.

All my toys have cloth bags that I made on my own. The silicone ones are in what was former pillow cases to reduce the amount of lint, the glass in thick plush microfibre pouches and the rest in their pouches they came with.

Even lint free cotton flour sacks with create a lint orgy with many toys and seems the most impractical way for me. I use large cheap zip lock bags. The only annoying part is materials like to stick/drag to the bag making it difficult to remove and put in only sometimes.
