Keeping / storage of poppers

Poppers do not belong in the fridge with milk, vegetables and salad.
We recommend that you store your poppers in a ZIP bag or Tupperware in a dark, cool place in your home that is safe from children and other people.
This could be in your cupboard or drawer, for example.
The ideal storage location for poppers is the cellar, as it is dark there and the ideal temperature is around 12 to 15 degrees.

Poppers like it cool and dark.
And very important: poppers do not like extreme temperature fluctuations at all.
The poppers substances start to break down if there are too many extreme temperature fluctuations.
And since poppers only work at room temperature, the freezer is definitely the wrong place to store poppers.

Poppers will keep unopened at room temperature for several months.
Avoid extreme temperature fluctuations, as poppers do not like this at all.

The contents of a used poppers bottle can be kept for at least one month after opening without any problems.
Poppers begin to decompose in combination with room air.
We recommend small bottles so that you can use new bottles again and again.

If a poppers bottle has undergone too many temperature fluctuations (e.g. x times in and out of the freezer compartment), the nitrite decomposes into various decomposition products.
The result is a brown, smelly and sticky broth.
At this point at the latest, it is time to dispose of the poppers bottle and order a new poppers bottle.

Poppers are best stored at cellar or room temperature.
The fridge is not necessary.
Poppers don’t like temperature fluctuations at all.

Unopened bottles last for several months.
Once opened/opened, bottles will last at least a month.

We are being asked this question more and more as environmental awareness increases.
Poppers are chemicals and should be disposed of in the same way as other household chemicals.
You can find the nearest collection point for chemicals at
Take care of the environment too.

It is best to wipe up the leaked poppers from the floor with household paper, a handkerchief or toilet paper.
The remaining poppers on the surface will evaporate over time.
Take particular care with parquet floors.
In any case, you should ventilate the room well for several hours.

Poppers are not addictive.
They are not addictive.

When nitrites are inhaled, among other things, there is a brief, sudden dilation of the blood vessels and thus also a drop in blood pressure and a brief lack of oxygen in the brain.
After three minutes, the blood pressure returned to normal.

Under no circumstances should you store poppers next to latex, fist gloves, condoms, etc., as the vapors can attack latex-based products in confined spaces (e.g. in a sports bag next to condoms).
Also never store poppers next to food, e.g. do not store them in the refrigerator.

Poppers are a flammable liquid.
Special care should be taken when smoking or handling with a lighter.

This actually makes a lot of sense.
The cellar is cool and dark and the temperature is constant.
This is exactly what the poppers like.

Anyone who has ever forgotten a popper in the glove compartment of their car and parked it in the sun knows very well how quickly poppers react to extreme temperature fluctuations.
The poppers decompose very quickly due to the heat of the sunlight and the poppers turn into a brown, smelly and sticky broth.
So keep poppers away from sunlight.
