  1. Hi Mari, you do not need to store it in the fridge, but if you’re going to keep it for more than a couple weeks, you’ll want to add 2-3 drops of vitamin E oil (from a capsule, just prick it with a needle and add the drops) for a natural preservative. I’ve never had a problem with any mold, but I don’t remember it ever lasting longer than a couple weeks.

  2. this would save me bundles! about to run out of my $18.95 bottle of gel! WOW!

    Do hope it works, will let you know in a day or two!
