STOR­AGE

American Survival Guide - - NEW PRODUCTS -

You’ve stock­piled an im­pres­sive amount of med­i­cal sup­plies, but things are cur­rently sta­ble. How should you store your drugs and other med­i­cal items for the long haul?

The en­e­mies of med­i­cal sup­ply longevity are heat, mois­ture and light. Stored in cool, dry, dark con­di­tions, ban­dages will last for years. Many, but not all, medicines will also last well be­yond their ex­pi­ra­tion dates. How­ever, stor­ing them in hot or hu­mid ar­eas (such as bath­room medicine cab­i­nets) will cause loss of po­tency over time.
