I recently moved from Ibiza to Australia. Before we left we had to sort through our stuff to decide what to bring with us. I noticed that quite a lot of my bands were really not in good condition anymore. I had several brands including Ironwoody, Pullum Sports and Sierra. I should have thrown some of these bands out long ago anyway but I just bought more bands and the older ones ended up further back in the closet. I noticed a fairly rapid decline in all of my bands since living in Ibiza. Several of them were from when I lived in England so they were getting quite old but even some of the newer bands I had bought while living in Ibiza were deteriorating. Ibiza is humid pretty much all year round and gets fairly hot in Summer. We lived on the coast so I am thinking the air was salty? I know that stainless steel suffers very badly in the Ibiza climate so I'm wondering if the humidity or salty air or heat or a combination of two of more of those things was the cause and may explain why some band owners bands don't last as long as others?
