How to store gel balls

Hello, just wondering what the best way to store gel balls is?

Some recommend in air tight seal in fridge.
I keep them in my speedloader in the fridge which is almost air sealed.
I would avoid freezing them as it will probably destroy the molecular bonding once they begin to de-thaw.


would that be in water or would you drain them first?

Oh sorry, always drain them and even use a paper towel to take off excess water, “not completely dry them but not have residue water” as to keep them at the desired size if youw ere growing for certain sizing.


ok, thanks very much
