    Default Best way to store clean tack? Vacuum Sealed?

    So around the farm there is a ton of tack that isn't often used and as a result gets covered in dust and mold. What would be the best way to store this tack/keep it clean? I was thinking that vacuum sealing it might be an interesting way......any thoughts or suggestions?

    Well cleaned, conditioned, wrapped in an old bath towel and then placed in a rubbermaid (or some such ) tub. This keeps dirt and mold under control and also keeps critters from chewing on it.

    I know some things do ok vacuum sealed in plastic, but over time it may not be healthiest for leather.

    If you can get your hands on an old chest freezer, that's a good place to store things and keep them out of the elements. But keep in mind that you're also "locking in" any moisture that's on the tack.
    I put a lot of my tack into old pillow cases. They seem to do a great job of absorbing excess moisture, and they're easy to wash and swap out.
