Take Care of Your Old VHS Tapes

Take Care of Your Old VHS Tapes
Many of us still have our childhood memories preserved on old VHS tapes from yester-year. If you are unable to have your old tapes transferred to DVD right away, it is important to know how to properly store your tapes to avoid degradation. Just follow these simple steps to make sure you are taking the best care of your memories:
  1. Make sure your tapes are fully rewound before storage.
  2. Label your tapes to avoid any re-recording.
  3. Protect your tapes from dust and debris with hard cases or sleeves
  4. Be sure to store your tapes in a cool, dry place.

Follow these few simple steps to preserve your memories still on old tapes. Although these steps will help you protect your tapes from damage, it is very important to ultimately archive your old tapes to DVD as soon as you can.
