    Default Where to store shuttles?

    My room is small and since it's summer my room is very hot and stuffy it's like sleeping in a oven. I recently just steamed four brand new tubes of training feathers, is it wise to keep the tubes in my hot room or where else should I store them? I wanna make them last for a while. thanks

    If you are living in a house then keep in the basement or cool room

    Cool and dark place is usually the best place to keep the shuttles. So like 10~20 degrees celsius would be fine.

    The shuttle do not need to be cool. On the contrary, they are happy in hot rooms. What is important is to keep the moisture level high, which is more easy in a hot place then in a cool one.
    You could try in your bathroom, close to the shower.

    I store mine in the garage and then transfer half a dozen tubes into the house when I require them, they are stored in the boiler room, nice and humid and warm, helps with the durability immensely.

    Also make sure to keep the shuttle tubes the right way up, not upside down or on their side, or else the shuttles will be misshapen.

    Kindest regards,

    Ah yes humidity is of course most important. I keep my shuttles in the basement which is 10~20 degrees and quite humid. Forgot to mention that in my earlier post.

    Best to get this steamer fast and easy.

    It is instant steam and cool mist. The shuttlecock last much longer
