How to store extra turntable belts?

I would like to purchase some extra backup belts for my Oracle turntable. They are a speciality item and you never know in todays analog market who will continue to stay in business.

Would the fridge with a cold dry climate inside be good? Any help, where will rubber keep the longest?


VPI recommends storing unused belts in a plastic bag with a light dusting of talcum powder in it, but who knows if this is universally applicable. Your mileage may vary. Why not ask the good folks at Oracle.
vacumn sealed plastic bag works best. second best is a sealed plastic bag with most of the air removed. keep in a cool dark dry place. i can't see much benefit from refrigeration.
Thanks for your input! I'll also try checking with a few different mfg's and see what I come up with.
