I think the most effective way to air tight the Jars and other. With a device known as "It Sucks". It is a little hand-held vacuum pump which is placed over an sticky tab that is placed over a little opening that is made in the lid or somewhere on your container and suks all environmental gases.

Lenna: I haven't heard of this product, but I have heard it mentioned and spoken about almost everywhere since time immemorial. :D I believe Jaxfishy has a similar unit (although designed for another purpose) that he uses to bleed his injectors. :lol:
