What happens when you don't close the Vitamins bottle airtight?
I left the lid slightly open for two days. Can this exposure to air contaminate the tablets? Should I worry about it?
There will be no contamination - that is, the vitamins are still healthy to take. But they may have lost potency, that is, they may not be as strong as they were.
If they are solid pills (like One-a-Day) or oil caplets (usually Vitamin D, A, or E), then they are probably fine. If they are capsules, check to see if they darkened in color, and if they developed a smell. If not, they're fine. If they are darker, or they smell, you might use two instead of one until you finish this bottle, if that feels right. Or, just don't worry about it.
Normally I do not put in airtight bottle but using silica to absorb water moisture to prevent the reaction. I do believe there is no contaminate unless it contact with foreign material.
