Loft isn't great as it is exposed to changes of temperature. Better to keep them in a cupboard at a more constant temperature.

Wardrobe it is then! Either that or kick the wife out of bed and sleep with them?

How did you sneak the 'Badass' softs past her then?

I keep mine in the loft.

Bat covers, then wrapped in a blanket and then two duvets to keep away the elements.

I put my bats in the kit bag and leave them on top of the wardrobe in the spare room.

I leave mine indoors away from radiators.
If they're okay to stay outside in 30 degree heat in the summer I don't see how keeping them in a house that wont get above 20 degrees is an issue

The correct method is to leave one bat in ever room over the winter. This is so when you fancy having a swing, no matter what room you're in, it's possible.

Nice work! I made sure I made a big show of thrusting my old pads into the bin with much tutting and shaking of head "they're just so stinky and discoloured" seemed to appeal to her womanly senses!

Any plans to do a more detailed revies of the 'Badass' softs?  I'm rather intrigued by them.

This, but getting your missus to stop moving them all back to the same place is an issue... "why is one of your bats even in the kitchen?"

I wrap my bats in cling wrap , then they go in full size bat covers , then in the wardrobe  . I buy bats as I get the money / urge to do so . Sometimes a new bat sits around for 2-3years waiting for others ahead in the queue to break or go out of favour  (10 bats a.t.m) . Ive never had a single issue with dryness , moisture , bat snapping or cracking early etc . The room where the wardrobe is in never varies in temps outside a range of 15-30c . Humidity levels between 40-70%.

How is the damp in that garage of yours? You could never keep a bat in my garage it would be far too damp.

Drying is a function of moisture in the ambience (atmospheric air) and moisture in the substance that is drying. Substance (bat) or ambient temperatures only increase/decrease the moisture carrying capacities of the air. So it doesn;t matter whether the temperature is cold or hot if the air is dry, the bats will dry out. The best way to prevent this from happening is 1. Isolate the bat from ambient conditions in plastic sheets and keep it in its bat cover. 2. Keep the bats near your bathroom which is suppose to be more moist environment than garage or trunk of a car 3. A humidifier also works well.
