How to prevent bottles to evaporete usning product called "parafilm"!
 
Here is some tip how to preserve your bottles in good condition and prevent evaporation of liquid. 
 
Keep bottles:
 
1. upright
 
2. out of direct sunlight or high temperatures
 
3. no drastic temperatur changes
 
4. newer hold bottle on the cork
 
5. use parafilm
 
Parafilm preventing leaks, but it's not airtight to 100%. But it will certainly slow down evaporation.

I'm sure that works great . I don't like the look of it though.

Evaporation isn´t really a problem at all. Doctor told me to drink less and so there are no restrictions for me, because bottles have less content.  :D

Thanks for taking the time with the videos - very cool

I use shrink wrap on my older paper seal bottles, I’m sure it won’t be near as effective as these paraffin strips but it helps a little and is near invisible.

I heard about that parafilm. Some of my friends who collecting only a mini bottles, using this. They told me it is a quite good way of protecting - especially plastic minis, but it doesn't look nice for me. So, like Max said, I prefer shrink wrap because it's look almost like a regular cello

I agree that shrink wrap looks better if you do it nicely. (I attached photos of an paper seal with shrink wrap and tape).
But the best way, known to me, to preserve content, beside the basics on keeping bottle on safe place, is parafilm. It maybe not looks nice, but you get use to it. Actually, it is not so bad. 
Bottles look best as they are originally. But many of us should kill for a really good preserved bottle from 60's. So in that in mind...It is our responsibility to take care of Jacks heritage  ;D
