Storing of Clay
by Perry A~ Arledge
best to store hydrated clay or liquid clay in an opaque,
ceramic, stoneware crock, glass or PET plastic air tight,
Keep hydrated or liquid clay out of direct sunlight and at cool
room temperature. It maybe refrigerated or not depending
on your preference.
other thing to consider when storing hydrated clay is that it's
important not to 'double dip' when scooping some hydrated clay
out of your storage container. This just means using a clean
utensil every time you remove some of the hydrated clay, and not
putting your fingers or spoon (use plastic, wooden or rubber)
back into the clay for another dip after you've already put that
spoon into your mouth. It just makes sense to do what you can to
keep the hydrated clay as pristine as possible in order to
prevent it from being contaminated in any way.
powder clay is easily stored in most places but keep it out of
close proximity to gasoline, chemicals, pesticides and
herbicides or anything with a strong odor. Always keep the
lid on tight on any clay products. Powdered clay stored properly
will keep indefinitely.
and liquid clays stored properly will last for years. A
good indicator that your clay has gone bad it to smell it before
using. If it has a sour, perfume, or musty odor you know
it has been compromised and it is not advisable to use in this
condition. Hydrated clay has a tendency to get thicker the
longer it is kept.
your clay with common sense and respect and it will stay fresh
and usable for a long time.
