    I keep mine in a circa 1800s dresser. Also in the dresser drawers are sections of panty hose filled with rice. I live in humid SC, and this does the trick.

    I love vintage watches, and they get the same treatment. Been collecting them for 20 years, and not one humidity related issue yet.

    Racks on the wall in my radio room are where mine are stored. Need some news pics of them.

Finally I decided to build the racks and keep them on the wall away from the humidity in the bathroom. They have been hanging there for several years now and so far no rust.
    Here are pics of the racks I made for my razors. The two on the sides are the 'Old West Style' I designed a few years ago.

    I'm using these wooden test tube racks:

    They are cheap enough on Amazon, and look great IMHO. They also come in different sizes - so you can combine them according to your collection.

    It keeps them even better - stops them from rotating freely.
    I did it with hand-held dremel - no trouble at all.

    Test tube racks, very nice. I would love to keep them out on display. Has to be better than in a roll or in a silicone treated sock for corrosion also!
