Is it safe to store keycaps in baggies?
« on: Thu, 12 March 2020, 10:04:05 »
Hey GH,

currently I store my spare keycaps in plastic bags, like this:

Is that safe? I heard that plastisizer from cables can melt ABS. I guess this applies to baggies too...
The caps in the picture are PBT... are they also affected by the plastisizer?

Best regards

I keep mine in thick ziplock bags, nothing has happened to them.
