Suggestions for increasing phage stability?

    I am worried that I am losing clones in phage vector because I am not 
preparing my clones for storage properly.
	What is the best way to maintain stability?  I have been adding a couple
of drops of chloroform and storing at four degrees C in microcentrifuge 
tubes, but I fear that I'm losing my clones.  When I perform PCR on this 
material now I'm not getting good bands.  
	Could someone please  post a good protocol for stable storage of phage 

Thank you,
