I think there is some type of compound that you can put on them to keep them soft. I would keep them covered up out of the sun, and maybe let the air down on them.

Try to hang them on the wall, if that's not possible.. lay them on their side. They will more than likely loose air. Best not to leave them standing up.. they will flat spot.
