I had 5 pairs of Shure Olives, they hardly lasted 5 months, so something is not right. They are authentic, shipped from Shure.

I'm pretty certain I may have washed them too hard, with soap and water and then compressed them while wet to wring out the water. Do you believe this could have affected the overall character of the foam?

After all, foam by definition has air pockets or air in it. My old olives are saggy and soft, and barely make a seal now.

I just got a pack of EVOs ( Extra Virgin Olives

), any suggestions on how to not kill them?


Thanks

You are supposed to just rinse them with water and gently clean the surface without compressing them.

It should, but I don't think it is necessary since water will suffice.
