Thinset, plaster, grout - okay to store in plastic?


I'm finishing up an apartment renovation and have a lot bags of plaster, thinset, grout, etc. These are all sold in paper bags or cartons and I'm wondering if there is a reason (besides economics) for this.

I figured that I'd save just a gallon or so of each for later patching/small projects in some old paint cans or sealable plastic pails but I want to make sure that they don't need to breath or something.

Ayuh,.....

All of those Paper Bags,+ Cartons I've seen are Plastic lined, to keep Moisture from the product..........

I think your plan Should work just fine....Keeping the product Dry is the main concern....
