    And my latest polish/cleaner experiment is... Mr Muscle!

    Glass cleaner, to be exact, with (it says) vinegar, and lime. Seems to take off all those nasty deposits, talc buildup and older polishes and thus far (half a dozen tries) the latex hasn't reacted adversely. Very good for a "reset" so that you can then put over the top a nice application of armour-all or what-have-you...

    I've been using Dow Corning 200 Silicone Fluid (200 cs thickness) for the past year. I was able to get a 500ml sample for free, just by registering on their website. It seems to work well. I've also used Armor All Ultra Shine and it also works good. I'll be trying out the Pjur Cult liquid next to see how it compares. I've used the "blue stuff", armor all original and some "white stuff" in the past. I didn't care for any of them.

    You're not alone in that, Morrison's window cleaner (the stuff that comes in a pump-action spray) does the same job.

    Then a coat of Simoniz 'Back-to-Black New Look' aerosol tyre shine. It smells a bit solventy but as it's intended to be used on rubber I'm thinking that's just the propellant and it'll be OK. Certainly I've never had any problems with it, (apart from accidentally getting overspray on a hardwood floor which it made it dangerously slippery for a while) . According to their website there's a gel version too which I'd like to try on green principles, but I've never seen it in the local shops. I'm not sure why they call it 'Back-to-Black' either, it's colourless and the website says it works on all colours. I've used it on coloured rubber myself (including cream/white) with no ill affects.

    Regards,

    Hi

    Just recently re-discovered Armoural and its great. Will even shine up latex that has gone white.

    Again be careful not to get it on the floor as its pretty slippery.

    Car parts places sell it in the UK and its widely available stateside.

    I suspect they simply don't know; we are after all, a rather larger and longer-term experiment than they can muster!

    My oldest stuff has been armor-all'ed for years and shows no signs of special breakdown or loss of surface - though I have been using lots of cleaners and washing is a very frequent ocurrence at schloss Gummi - and I don't put things away, polished...

    I have fond under the "latex clothe silicon spray " sticker that I purchased from a local vendor in Brussels that the spray was a silicone spray to unmold extrusion from rubber and plastic mold ref was S1-56 from goulon SPRL wich does not exist anymore.
    I will try to source a local vendor but it seems that there are several brands manufacturing this type of silicone

    If anyone has experiance with this type of product ?

    Oh, please, one can hardly answer that question without infringing one of the more recent quandries on this site, alibaba being specialists in marketing far-eastern products.
    For myself, having just returned from Brussels, I used to get Pjur products from Libidos. You might also research Dimethicone on this site.

    Silicone spray contains solvents that will degrade latex over time and are just bad for your health. It works if all you want is a photoshoot, but afterwards your latex will be sticky and the mirror-like surface ruined.

    Wipe on polishes and silicones are better
