    I was just wondering if anyone has used any type of chemical treatment (Armor all, food grade silicone, petroleum) on slingshot rubber? If so what was the effect on durability and power. I treat my dive gear with food grade silicone. It keeps the rubber clean and has preserved it for years. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_question.gif" alt="Question" longdesc="17">

    Same here, baby talcum and it is ok. I don' t think they would sell it if it was dangerous, especially for babies.
