Hi Everyone,

I just bought my first set of bands. I noticed when I ordered that there is a note that they wear out over time. I seem to recall that there are some specific instructions that will help them last longer. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks.

Store them in a cool dry place, don't leave them set up, and keep anything involving oil away from them

Don't let them dry out. That's all I got.
Also, when using them watch for small sharp protrusions form whatever you are looping them around.

I iron woody bands are about 3-4 years old, the # 3s are going strong and 4s are like new dont use them much, i did use the minis untill they were coming apart but the will last a long time, i use them more than most also.
