My Mom and all our Indiana country folks have always stored 5 gal buckets of flour, beans, corn meal and sugar. They have always put bay leaves in the buckets to keep it fresh and bug free. Dose anyone else do this? I also use Iodophore to clean containers before storing water and add a drop per gallon to the water. My beer making friends advised me to do this. Has anyone tried this? Is it safe to use. Thanks, I'm always running ideas through my head and with this forum I can ask others.
