How do I store my AeroPress after use?

Disassemble the AeroPress after use and store it disassembled: When the plunger is in the AeroPress body, it is under pressure at the rims. Either push the plunger all the way it to ensure the seal is outside the cylindrical body or keep the plunger and body separate.

What material is the AeroPress made of?

Silicones are rubber like materials that are primarily made of silicon and oxygen.
