    Looking for small & quite large plastic bags that don't leach or harm delicate CD cases & bare discs in any way while in contact.

    Just looking for what people use & some suggestions.

    I myself wouldnt care too much about cases, put 'bare' disks in paper sleeves, then in plastic bags. I have 100's of empty jewel cases, 80 - 90% of my (data) cds/dvds are in paper sleeves, in stacks, here & there, , ,

    (I save the (anti-static?) bags that electronics hardware comes in, for later use)

    Avoid vinyl and any plastic with a noticeable odor. BoPET ("Mylar") is probably the best material.

    Off-gassing and moisture buildup is a problem with plastic bags.
    Plastic makes for terrible storage for some things.

    I'm going with mylar D type. Seems fine from all the reading I have done. Moisture should be solved with desiccants I would hope.

  7. PE is soft by definition as such should be OK for your use, odor can be related to plastifier vapors, humidity can be solved by removing most of air and storing all in relative dry atmosphere (use few silica gel bags as desiccant). You may invest some money in cooled rack (similar can be seen in shop on milk products).

    I now use plastic bags found at supermarket, they have no smell & since they are food bags maybe they are safe? Do you know if leaching or plastifier vapors can damage react with cd case plastic & discs etc?
