I'm running out of room!

I'm running out of room!

Right now, I have all my toys stored in their original boxes in a bag in my closet. I'm totally running out of room. Ideally, I'd like to have them all in storage bags/pouches. I was wondering, is it okay to just go to Michaels and get a bunch of organza bags? The toy materials are mostly silicone, TPR or plastic. Or maybe order some satin bags? I love the Eden branded bag but it would get costly to buy one of those for each of my toys. Thanks!

Can't say I know much about the organza bags. When I want to keep my toys separated, I just use plastic sandwich baggies of varying sizes, and then put the bags in my toy box together. Works like a charm.

One thing to keep in mind if you're ever short of space or bags: 100% silicone toys can be stored together without ill effect. Likewise metal, glass, and hard plastic are inert and won't hurt anything. For other materials, though, it's best to keep each toy separated.

I thought silicone could NOT be stored together?

Where'd you hear that? As long as it's 100% pure silicone, it's fine. I have a bunch of silicone dildos dwelling together in a makeup bag, of all different firmnesses and from several different companies. They've been laying on top of each other for months and have been perfectly fine.

Now, materials that simply contain some silicone (TPR silicone, for example) should usually be stored by themselves. Silicone lubricants can also cause reactions on toys made of silicone, so they shouldn't be used together without at least doing a patch test (for every bottle, as well, as formulas can vary slightly from batch to batch). But pure silicone toys can be stored together without issue.

If you're not sure if it's pure silicone or not, then it's best to play it safe, of course.

I think I was jumbling my thoughts, perhaps thinking of TPR. Thank you!

No problem. The only concern I'd have with silicone is, if it's a really soft silicone, to not store anything heavy on top of it. The super-duper soft stuff takes physical damage a little more easily.

I don't like to keep the boxes, but I worry about just tossing my toys together into the toybox. I've been looking at satin (or satin lined) pouches. Here are some sites that sell them, if you're interested.

Wow! I can't believe how cheap those are! You could hardly make them for that. Eden Fantasays could give something like those away and I would be so happy. It would be much cheaper for them than some of their freebies! Thanks InkedIvy! I think I might order some!

Oh, I wasn't trying to be all snarky "no need to make a new thread," (I'm usually on the 'go ahead and make a new thread' team). I was just offering up a discussion that was of interest, because more people had input than I would have been able to quote real'quick'like.
