My Gram always washed off the dirt and then dipped em in a weak Clorox and Water solution, let em dry and then put them in the sandpile in the corner of the root-cellar...

Root cellar, basement, anywhere they won't freeze i reckon. Those big potato barns around Mn aren't heated at all - they generate enough heat of their own to not freeze. (Well, really that's oxidation doing that)

Never tried waxing them but we just pulled cabbages & stuff whole and hung it from the basement joists by its roots. Whatever didn't fit the kraut crock, that is :)

we always just get the dirt off of them and sprinkle a little lime over them as I bury them in sawdust in the crib.
