How to Properly Store your Cornhole Game

 

With fall in full swing and winter closing in, you’re probably packing in your official cornhole game for the season. Before you just toss it in the garage, however, make sure you properly prepare and store the item. Just as with everything else, your cornhole game needs a little maintenance and TLC to ensure it lasts for years to come.

Caring Tips
Before storing the game away for the season, make sure to give it a good clean up. This will help prevent any dirt and debris from damaging, scratching or staining the surface of the cornhole game. Simply wipe the dust and surface dirt off with a rag before lightly washing it with a damp cloth. Once the game is clean, wipe dry with a towel. Furthermore, give the board a once over, looking for any damages that need repaired. If possible, fix the issues before storing the game away for the season. Damage left to deal with may actually become a more serious problem the longer you wait to address it.

Storage Tips
All parts of your cornhole game, from the board to the bean bags, should be stored in a dedicated area. It doesn’t matter if it’s the garage, basement or bedroom. As long as the area is dry and the board is stored away from direct heat and sunlight, it will be fine. With that said, in whatever area you store the board in, make sure it is accessible to only you. Storing it in area at reach of pets and children could spell disaster for your board.

What Not To Do
Never store any part of the cornhole game in a damp area. The excessive moisture can cause the board to warp, as well as increase the chance of mold and mildew growth, which will result in staining and rotting of the board. Furthermore, you should never store the cornhole board near sharp objects which can scratch and severely damage the board. Also, be a little picky about how handles your game. Not everyone will treat your game with the same level of care that you do, and some people are down right rough and inconsiderate when it comes to others possessions. So don’t feel guilty about not letting certain people borrow or use your cornhole game.

Following the above care and storage tips will help to prolong the life of your cornhole game and bring you and your family years of fun.
