    Older medicine bottles starting to lose liquid and failing corks.

    I have a bunch of medicine bottles that are starting to lose the seal after displaying for many years. Is there a trick to sealing the cork again without losing the look of the item?

    The most effective method I have seen is to cap off the cork with wax.

    Use the wax but carefully. I've seen the results of some ugly wax jobs on Ebay.

    I just put a dab of rubber cement on top.
