Storing Magnesol

I finally got around to getting another 25 gal batch started last week. Let the glycerol settle out for a little over a week, while I was getting the Magnesol and related filters ordered. Received the filters Monday and the Magnesol today. Drained the glycerol yesterday and mixed in the magnesol today. Hopefully I finally end up with a good batch after I get done filtering tomorrow. Planning on running through a 25m, 5m, and a 1m absolute filter. My question is, are there any specifics I should be aware of about storing the magnesol? Is it ok to let it sit open in it's original bag, or should I put it in a sealed bucket/container? Is it harmed by humidity? I skimmed through the fryerpower website info and couldn't find anything. At the moment I just have a plastic trash bag over the open end of the magnesol bag. Is that sufficient?
Thanks

Magnesol should be stored in a sealed container, it will pull moisture out of the air.

I just roll up the open top of the paper paper bag and then just use a twisty tie on the top of the garbage bag it came in. That's worked for me for two years.
