    resealing an open tin..?

    hi

    once a tin is opened (vacuum released), is it OK to just replace lid and back into storage

    or do you seal somehow - cling film..?

    Hey, John...Get a hold of some glass canning jars with the two-part metal screw on lid and they come in various sizes, too. The jars are manufactured by Ball and are also sold under the name "Mason". They're popular with pipe smokers because the lids seal tight and can also be used for long-term storage. I wouldn't trust my tobacco with any other storage container and have been using them for years.

    thanks - I've seen them at Sainsburys and will buy some for the tins I've opened..!

    for normal daily use with loose tobacco, I have these with a silicon inner sealing washer
