What's the best way to store RI? the only advice I can find is to store it in an air tight container with a damp paper towel over it...but isn't that while in use? How do I store it for later use...like tomorrow or next week?? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! BTW, mine's made with meriangue powder, water, and 10X sugar.

Lay a piece of plastic wrap over the top and put a lid on it (air tight container). It can be stored on the counter top.

I put it in a glass bowl that has an airtight lid. I put a piece of damp paper towel over the bowl under the lid. I keep it in the fridge (I know it's not really neccessary, I just think it holds up better in there). Always rewhip before using again!

Thanks! that exactly what I wanted to know. How long do you usually keep it? will it last a week without freezing it?

I just had some that I had leftover on my counter for 2 months. I made a decal out of it and it was just fine, however if you are making items like flowers I would say that it should be used sooner. I have saved it for a month with the Press n Seal over the top of the plastic container and then a nice tight lid over all that. I would rewhip as others have stated to use for flowers. thumbs_up.gif

Thanks so much for all your helpful comments!! You have also given me the idea to use my left overs for some practice flowers thumbs_up.gif instead of storing it as is. practice makes perfect, right? icon_biggrin.gif Thanks again!!
