Storage bladder made from pliable plastic
Storage Bag Keeps Finishes Fresh
Many woodworkers know this story. You buy a can of finish, open it, and use it for the first time. When you’re done, you close up the canister and put it on a shelf. You use it off and on during the year, but there comes a time when you open the container and the finish is no longer usable because it has oxidized, thickened, or skinned over. I’ve thrown out plenty of half-filled cans of finish because of this. Well, not any more. The StopLossBag is a bladder made from pliable plastic that has an airtight screw cap. After pouring in the finish (with the help of a funnel and an included tube), you squeeze out the air and screw on the cap. I’ve had some Waterlox stored in one of the bags for six months, and it’s just as fresh now as it was the day I opened the can. That’s impressive, and I’ll definitely use StopLossBags to store my finishes from here on out.
