Subject: [CR]Silk Tubular Maintenance

I've acquired some period silk tubulars in very good condition which I must maintain for some time until a restoration is finished. They were bought stored flat, uninflated, in a box. They hold air well and have no obvious signs of rot, etc. How should they be maintained, i.e. inflated? On rims? In the dark? In a plastic bag? Will Amour-all help? I've done some reading about this but I would like to get some first-hand advice, too. Thanks for any advice.
