    Preserving Bands

    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.
