Can sunlight damage audio & video tapes?

Question:
Can sunlight damage audio & video tapes?

Answer:
Yes, don't put tapes in the sun, on top of the radiator, in a car window, in the trunk or near anything warm. Tapes will distort, shrink, stretch, and warp in heat. What's more, sunlight and heat can affect a tape's performance. Keep them in a place that's dark, clean, cool & dry.
