Hi, You mention on your show about using plastic wrap to store a racket. I fine that a one-quart freezer bag works perfectly. It is just the right size and will keep the air away from the rubber. I use it to keep my racket whenever I am not playing with it, and it can be re-used almost indefinitely. It will not protect the rubber from light, but it does keep it safe from humidity and dust. These is no need to buy specialized protection sheets when the freezer bag is virtually free.

I did that, but someone told me residue from the plastic of normal bags can hurt the rubber. True or false?

I haven't seen it happen.  Others may have some anecdotal evidence.

I seen a video on Youtube that coating the rubber with sunflower oil (30 Times) increases its grip. Is that true?

I don't think it will work.

That's why I haven't tried it.

 I've stored bats in clear plastic bags for forty years. Haven't noticed any effect whatsoever. Cheers

 An elastic around the handle wouldn't hurt also.
