Here is a tip of the day. Use large pill containers to store bands in for UV protection. In the picture I have a set of Express bands in a cellophane bag (like I pack them) in the large prescription pill bottle. The yellow or green color of these pill containers shields against UV and also protects against ozone. They will not protect against heat however so put hem in a cool place.

Why does the color matter? Wouldn't the same results be achieved with a regular white vitamin pill container for example? It seems like a good idea for one's bug out bag.

I don't know, but I know that yellow, brown and green filters out the UV. That is why you see a lot of products on the market in jars of these colors. Tex

I heard somewhere that storing bands in a jar of water keeps them fresh. I have never tried it, has anybody else heard of that ?? I have never had a problem with my band material, as long as its out of the sun.
