Subject: Wetsuit care

Hi, everyone.

I have a newbie question about wetsuits for ya. I have developed a habit of applying menthol rub on my chest before I exercise (it clears my nose and head). My question is: Will any kind of menthol rub damage my wetsuit? My suit is a BlueSeventy React it it matters.

Thanks, Nick

Doesn't matter what wet suit you have, but most of the time, those menthol rubs are petroleum based and will destroy any rubber in fairly quick order.

Just apply it above your suit (ex. very thin stripe in the mustache zone).  It won't do much good trapped under the neoprene.
