If you are an avid cornhole player you know how absolutely vital it is to properly maintain your bags. Failure to keep these bags in good shape and adequately stored away, whether in the summer or the off season, will lead to serious problems and will force you to continually have to buy new sets. Here are a few simple recommendations for how to maintain your corn bags so that you can use them for many years to come.
First, invest in a basic plastic tub with an airtight and watertight lid. These lids should have a rubber gasket that provide the perfect seal. Placing your bags in such a tub will keep out all sorts of creepy crawlers as well as the elements; such as humidity. Every cornhole player, at one time or another, have had their bags destroyed by either insects or rodents looking for a snack. Remember, corn is a food course and critters of all kinds, especially the dreaded squirrel, love to feast on these bags, destroying them the process. Keeping your bags stowed away at all times, even during a break from play, is a wise thing to do.
Next, always keep your cornhole bags stored in a cool, dry environment. Even if they are protected in your plastic tub, it’s still smart to take that extra step and keep ‘em away from any environment factors that can damage them. Moisture can break down the corn and leave you with a rotting, smelly mess. A basement is often the best place to keep these corn bags when not is use; given you don’t have a mouse village down there! If you take the above precautions you can be assured that your bags will last a long time and you won’t have to worry about forking out $30 every few months for new bags.
