How to store Logic Board/SSD/WiFi card?

I've had to remove my logic board, SSD, and WiFi card from the body of my MacBook Pro temporarily.

I'm wondering: what's the best/"safest" way to store these while outside of the computer? I assume there is nothing toxic/hazardous about holding them outside of the machine.

Are they alright in a sealed plastic bag? Should I remove the thermal paste from the logic board?

Use a non-static bag, they are usually orange or pink. Look for pink bubble wrap. Anti-static bags are usually plastic (PET) and have a distinctive color (silvery for Metallised film, pink or black for polyethylene). The polyethylene variant may also take the form of foam or bubble wrap, either as sheets or bags. Because of the need for protection against mechanical damage as well as electrostatic damage, layers of protection are often used; because of this, you might find:

The protected device packaged inside a metalized PET film bag

Packed inside a pink polyethylene bubble-wrap bag

Packed inside a rigid black polyethylene box lined with pink poly foam


. Or a transmetalic shielding bag like this: http://www.staples.com/Transmetalic-Shie...

Most repair shops will have a couple of spares.
