How do you store hard boiled eggs?

We dyed 3 dozen and I'm wondering if they need to be covered if they are in uncracked shells? I think I've always put them in big tupperware containers, but now I'm wondering why...hmmm...and do they need to be refrigerated? I mean...if you hide them at night, how long will it take for them to spoil? Merry Easter.

Did you save the cartons the eggs came in? That would be the best place to store them...they're protected from cracking, and they won't rub against each other and ruin the dye job... More

When I was a lot younger, we always left the eggs out on the counters for days at a time. Now, I might leave them out overnight, but more often than not I put them in a bowl and store them on one of the upper shelves in the refrigerator.

you need to store them in refridgerator in order to keep them from getting spoil. They should be fine over night if the temperature is not too warm.

YES YES YES YES YES they need to be refrigerated! Don't wanna invite Sam & Ella (Salmonella) to Easter dinner. If the eggs are cracked, you should put them in a container so they don't absorb other "smells" or fill your fridge with that "hard boiled egg" smell. But it won't hurt them if they aren't covered.

Well I think you need to store it in refrigerator . And you can peel the egg shells before you store them ! Perhaps it will be cleaner and hygiene !
