    i have been looking for natural latex for a while, i finally found some but i just ordered some theraband black. i want to save the natural latex until i use up the black, what is the best way to do this?

    I think if you keep it in a dark place( shoebox i.e) it will be ok. Don' t know about the temperature... Most important is keep it of the sun light.

    this is the natural latex i might buy <a href="http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003SLEZZ4/ref=biss_dp_sa2" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003SLEZZ4/ref=biss_dp_sa2</a> i am ordering some other stuff and i was going to add it for free shipping. the 0.01 inch thick i very expensive, but the 0.05 inch is cheaper than theraband gold for the same amount. if the stuff it says in the description is true it sounds really good. anyone tried it, is it good?

    <div>I keep all my rubber in airtight food containers ,this slows surface oxidisation. This is seen more on darker material. It gets a dull milky coating. I dont know how fast it will degrade rubber but it is degredation</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">
