Bottle Care

Postby evertonmint » Sat Feb 19, 2011 1:38 pm

hi, I have in my collection some bottles without boxes. I recently purchased some corregated cardboard to wrap around them. Does anyone know if this could damage the labels? Also I have a couple of screw caps that have lost some of their level...no good for the collection but is there any way of stopping this? cheers people

Parafilm-m is very effective especially if we are talking in terms of leaving the bottle unopened for extended periods of time. For those bottles you like to open every 6 mos or so you can use electrical tape (yes I know several that use this method on their open bottles and it is effective). Or you could dip them in wax which is tedious.
