Default How can i store unused oxygen absorbers



Advertise Here

Hello all,
I trust this message finds you in peace and all is well.

I'm a newbie. I just got my first Mylar bags, and Oxygen absorbers. Seems like the OAs are not individually packed as I thought would be, but all in a vacuum sealed bag.

I am going to bag (a 5 gal bucket size) some rice to start with. But don't know what I'm suppose to do with unused OA any suggestions?

Thanks
T.

Some people store them in canning jars.

I reseal the plastic bag they come in w/ my hotjaw sealer.

i've also sealed them in Mylar bags to keep them fresh.

Whatever you do, don't keep them out of a sealed environment any longer than you have to.

Mason jar or seal up in a foodsaver bag.

I sprung for a bag clip from the LDS and use that to reseal the bag that the o2 absorbers come in.

Seal them in a mylar bag.
You can re-use the bag if you only cut the edge when you take them out.
