A Guide to Safely Storing DMSO: Glass vs BPA-Free Plastic.

Our DMSO is only sold in Glass or BPA-Free Plastic.

- When it comes to storing DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide), choosing the right container is crucial for maintaining its potency and shelf life.

While both glass and BPA-free plastic are viable options, understanding their differences can help you make an informed decision.

- Glass containers are widely considered the gold standard for DMSO storage.

Glass is non-reactive, meaning it won't interact with or leach into the DMSO solution. This helps preserve the chemical's integrity and prevents potential contamination. Additionally, glass is impermeable to air and moisture, further protecting the DMSO from degradation.

- On the other hand, BPA-free plastic containers offer convenience and durability.

These containers are lightweight, shatter-resistant, and often more affordable than their glass counterparts. However, it's essential to choose high-quality, food-grade plastics specifically designed for chemical storage. Inferior plastics may react with DMSO or allow air and moisture to seep in over time.

- Proper storage is key to maximizing the shelf life of your DMSO solution.

Regardless of the container material, always store DMSO in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Additionally, ensure the container is tightly sealed to prevent evaporation and contamination.

By understanding the pros and cons of glass and BPA-free plastic containers, you can make an informed decision and store your DMSO safely and effectively, ensuring its potency and longevity.
