Paper towels in aluminum foil, wet and cool overnight. Bit of hassle but keeps very fresh.


I used to do this...
But then discovered this way is neater and easier and holds up just as well, if not better...
I just put water in the bottom of my lulav bag ( and make sure there's no holes)

I tried to put water in the bottom, by placing the arovos in a bucket and then to wake up with my arovos dead, they seem to need a plastic casing around them to keep them moist.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

I was away for Succas, coming back home tonight I hung up a נוי סוכה that I want to take home, when I hang it up I had in mind it should not get מוקצה and that I want to take it down on Chol Hamoed,
Did it help? Can I take it off?

You can never lay the bag down. Also taking out the lulav sounds complicated

Piskei tshuvos claims this is a machlokes. Didn't have a chance to review the sources yet though.

That is not the way it is described there and on Yom tov has additional issues as well

On chol Hamoed it's Not a problem at all, it becomes muktzah from using the נוי סוכה for different taashmushim, not from touching moving like muktza we know shabbos and yom tov.

The tenay should be more specific eini bodel etc. Not just "I'm using it"

Sort of. I'm using it works of it is for the entire Yom tov. If it is only that I am taking out later that doesn't work. The Mechaber says use whenever I want works but not that will take down later. His was to take down later which doesn't work.

I've been doing this for years now and it always lasts.
Btw, mishna brura brings from Bikurei Yaakov that this is not called agad since it is easily separated and put back together.
