Good morning everyone. I was just curious if anyone has tried this method. I read somewhere in a blog where you can thoroughly clean and dry the soda bottles then place bayleaves in the bottom, fill with the rice, then place a couple in the top before you close them. They said that the bay leaves kept out the critters. So, if any of you have done this, please let me know if it does work or any problems you had. And any other thoughts or ideas would be appreciated! Thanks

I use old canning jars to keep my rice in. Have never tried or used the bay leaves, and my rice is fine. Depends on what you mean by "long term" storage, because to some that could be 1-3 months and for others who don't use rice all the time, it could be 6-12 months.

I fall in between, and my rice has stayed fine int he canning jars without bay leaves for up to 8 months before I've used it all up. Then once I open a new bag, I just dump the remainder in my canning jar.

Digging out of debt, 1 coupon at a time.....

I use 2-liter bottles for long terrm storage. fill, shake and rattle bottle,fill some more, repeat process till absolutely no more rice can fit in the bottle.. With This procedure Im assured that as much air as possible is dislodged from the bottle before capping..Then I finish off the filled and capped bottle with some duct tape around the neck and cap. I dont use bay leaves. But I do pop the bags of rice into freezer for several days..Larger the bag, longer the stay in the deep freeze. This will keep potential problems of bug infestation to a minimum.

Awesome! I didnt think to use the duct tape around the top! And, never knew about the freezer trick! I will definitely be doing that too!!

Unless its brown rice(which doesnt store as long as white rice,because of its oils) white rice can be stored indefinately if steps are adhered to. I ,for one, LOL,,just "dont throw things onto a cupboard shelf<<that comment touched my giggle bone!!


even if rice WAS thrown into a cuphoard it will last far longer than a month !! (unless of course it gets wet, raided by mice, burrows created by bugs etc etc )

The OP I do believe(correct me if I thought wrong) was needing info on LONGGGGGGGGGG term storage and if thats the case, tossing into the cupboard wasnt gonna get it

white rice doesn't really have an expiration date - as long as it looks good, smells good and is free of mold, bugs, etc it is usually safe to use. I have large containers that are sold as dog food containers and I keep the rice in with a couple of bay leaves folded into a coffee filter placed at the bottom of the container.
