Subject: [CR]Care of Gummed Hoods/Rubber Feet

Hi gentlepersons,

Now that I have managed to get a set of NOS gummed Campy brake hoods and a Campy Silca NOS pump head with nice rubber feet -- except for storing them somewhere unused (which is not my plan) -- how do I keep these items pliable as long as possible? Talcum powder? Or should it be some type of oil?

Thanks for your suggestions,
