If you soak cotton or a paper tissue in amyl, other than severing as a great way to get it into your system, it quickly loses potency and starts to have a very strong smell. The smell also remains long after all the amyl has evaporated. It's slightly different to that of poppers, with the best way to describe it being more sour and much stronger. This doesn't seem to happen with things like textiles. Does anyone have any sort of idea what may be causing this? My best guess is that it has something to do with the amyl reacting with cellulose or some sort of binding agent.

I think I know now. I think the answer is that it just goes bad because it reacts with the air and moisture faster than in a bottle.
