Maybe get a little airtight storage tub to keep it all in. I don't know I haven't had that problem, but that would be my first step if I did.

I put all of my shisha in lip lock bags and squeeze the air out then put it in a duffel bag that says Smith and Wesson on it (woot) anyway, I push down on the bag to let some of that air out and it seems to work pretty well. If I put the bag in a closet I don't really smell it. Though the smell doesn't really bother me. I like to think of it as a air freshener.

It could be a mold/mildew problem. None of my shisha smells even remotely like dirt. And it just sounds odd that the odor would seep through a ziploc back.

If you can't get the problem smell to go away maybe you should think about glass containers....No leakage there...just a thought.

You don't have your shisha stashed near the sneakers you wear barefooted do you? LOL

Yeah make sure that are all airtight. I've noticed that if you just put 'em in a ziplock bag, you can still smell them. Try putting them in a plastic container or something.

I really do not recommend putting shisha in refrigerators. It makes the juices go dry and the tobacco become harsh because of temperature changes. NEVER put shisha in the fridge...ever lol

Smells like "dirt"? You may have some mold or mildew problems in the room you are storing your shisha .. it shouldn't smell like that!

Anyway, for the ultimate seal. Put your shisha in a ziplock baggie, then place the ziplock baggie in a ziplock container! Will provide a great seal!

Cheers!
