Best way to store your rubber

What is the best way to store your rubber. I want to leave my rubber in the Philippines I always bring it back because of the hot weather there.

Thanks I also heard of that but didn’t know if it works over there cause of the higher heat there. I will give that a try this time instead of bringing them back with me. Also how long can I leave them in the refrigerator before they go bad if they do?

I not only store new band material, but after spearing I store my tied bands in the fridge...it last for a REALLY long time, doesn't even discolor ( the amber stays amber,,,the black...yea...it stays black!)
