I would like to store some winter shoes, and keep them away from the excessive moisture that I live with. Last year I saw some kind of fungus growing on the shoes. They were not covered or protected, they were just in a corner, on the floor. Is it okay to store them in plastic garbage bags? How can I make sure they donÂ´t get fungus on them? It would be better to cover them with soft paper (toilet paper) and then put them in a garbage bag? Does a small Silica gel bag help? Is it true that leather shoes need to breathe? I mean is it bad to cover them with a garbage bag? I know there are fancy bags for shoes but I donÂ´t have them with me at the moment. IÂ´m looking for a cheap alternative that is effective.
