Make the lid so it is made tigt and store only in the cool place. For freezing i never heard it!

I've found freezing does pro-long them but not by much more then normal storage which is to basically just make sure that cap is as tight as possible and store in a cool dark place.

I thought that freezing might have an adverse effect. So it is still fresh and pungent post-freeze? if so that is rather useful.

The thing with freezing is you have to make sure to take out before you use and let it reach room tempature before using. Really dark and cool is the best. Meaning drawer next bed ok .... window sill not ok.

Water picked up from the atmosphere is one of the main reasons why poppers degrade faster after opening.
Freezing them immobilizes the water by turning it into ice crystals which don't combine so easily with the nitrites. It's good for long term storage. The nitrite liquid itself won't actually freeze in a regular freezer.
"The Rush Hour" is right though - you must let the bottle rest at room temperature before every opening otherwise condensation will get in and spoil the advantage gained by freezing.

@fasty is it right that pellet balls are meant to do this too? i read that if the ball is broken the poppers are not fresh.

socks - Originally, PWD introduced the pellet to absorb water and other impurities. It was definitely effective at prolonging the life of the product.
The pellets started to break up when the bottle had been open for some time, presumably as they started to absorb water.
So it's reasonable to assume that a broken pellet could indicate that the bottle may have been open for a while so perhaps not fresh.
On the other hand, many other manufacturers simply added utterly useless plastic pellets to their bottles to mimic PWD. Duh...

Electrical tape pulled tightly around the bottle where cap is creates a new seal prolonging effect and reducing exposure to air and escaping fumes
