The best way to store onions, is to put them in a mesh bag, nylon stocking or in loose bins and crates, but make sure you store them loosely. If they are packed too tight, the ones on top can bruise the bottom ones, causing them to spoil or rot early. 

Remember not to wash onions before storing them as this would encourage rotting to set in sooner than expected. Also take note not to store them along with other produce or products that can absorb the onion’s pungent smell.
