VacuCork Homepage

Hey guys!
I wanted to introduce you guys to these rubber corks (I've started calling them VacuCorks, Vacuum Cork) that have traditionally been used in Finland in order to preserve fruit juices and other liquids.
One day I was on the facebook group "Midwest Homesteading and Permaculture" and asked the members if anything like this existed in the states and apparently it did not. So I decided to do something about that and created a little online store for people in North America to have access to these corks.
So these corks fit 750ml/1l standard glass bottles and is applied on the bottle when the bottles have been sterilized and are hot and a hot liquid such as fruit juice is put in to the bottle. Once the liquid and bottle cool down it pulls the rubber cork down and creates a vacuum in the bottle. This way you can preserve your juices in a cool and dark place for more than a year. ( I have had some 2 year old black currant juice that my grandfather made and it still tasted delicious!)
So I am selling these for $8 per package and one package contains 10pcs, I also have a $10 flat shipping fee. Do note that it does take a 2-3 weeks for the corks to arrive because I am still in Finland, so sending them does take a while.
Also to mention is that these are reusable and really durable. I have some of my grandfathers old corks which are most likely from the 70's and they still do the job, so this is a very long term product that would enable you to preserve fruit juices from season to season.

Thanks for reading this message!

This is a small instructional video on how to use them:
