I recently purchased a drysuit w/ latex seals and was told talcum
powder was the best preservative for them. Unscented was advised
because the oil-based fragrance deteriorated latex. Everyone I've
talked to locally told me they got their talc from their drysuit manufacturer. I could order the suit manufacturer's talcum powder, but
they want $20 a bottle (I know, after dishing out all that $ for a
suit, why can't I spend another $20?).
Are there any specialty stores that carry unscented talcum powder?
I've already tried drug stores, discount stores, and supermarkets.
Please help me people, because after only ten dives my neck seal
is cracking (and I don't have a ring system or self-replacable seals).
I hate to send the suit back (I've been diving pretty heavily this
winter: new drysuit-related dive mania).
Thanks to anyone who can help (parenthetical additions to
sentences are a pain, aren't they?).
