Can I use a empty pack of soft worm lures to store my odds and my big question is can I add some olive oil or what would you guys recommend? I’m still learning hahaha

Certain types of plastisol also 'eat' away at each other and bleed into one gooey mess.

For example Zman plastics can't be stored with 'normal' soft plastics.

I normally store say all Zoom odds and end in one packet, Culprits in another and so on...

Best to store them in their original bags and don't mix brands and colours as mentioned as they might "become one". Keep empty bags for keeping your stockpile and the baits you take fishing separate.

A word of warning...the reason that they are so soft and the reason that they melt other plastics and each other if having different make-up, is the same, "Plastisol is a suspension of PVC or other polymer particles in a liquid plasticizer" that from wikipedia.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plastisol

The plasticizers tend to be things like BPA and other "phthalates". These are toxic endocrine disruptors, or estrogen mimics in laymans terms and are causing havoc in us and ecosystems currently. They directly cause cancers of the reproductive system and prostrate, breast etc..and skewed sex-ratios and birth defects/intersex births.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phthalate
https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2015/feb/10/phthalates-plastics-chemicals-research-analysis

So limit your exposure to the goo that forms if it does melt, also handle the wormies minimally and wash ones hands after handling, and definitely before eating or smoking etc..If you remelt them or cast them yourself, open air, outside and DO NOT breathe in the fumes unless you want manboobs or cancer.

Don't mean to scare but that is the reality of our softbaits and plastics in general. The plastic component of the "plastics" in general is not toxic generally, even with the debate on the harms of the microplastics, the plastic is not the issue, but the k@k it absorbs that is toxic from the environment, like pesticides, and the heavy metal salt based dyes and estrogen mimicking plasticizers it contains. Some plastics, even some used for food and beverage packaging contains more weight plasticizers than plastic. A time-bomb waiting to go off as far as I am concerned. Anyway you've been warned.
