1. For smaller orders, store them on the bottom shelf of your refrigerator, for example in a vegetable bin lined with newspaper.
2. Carefully place the lei(s) in a plastic bag.
3. For large/bulk orders, make sure the leis are stored in either a walk-in refrigerator, a flower cooler or similar. If a refrigerator is unavailable, leis can be stored in a cooler with ice.
4. Make sure the leis do not touch the ice, instead put some newspaper or a towel on top of the ice.
5. If none of the above is available, store the leis in an air-conditioned room and avoid heat.
