Sunblock is useful for something

So, ya know that SPF sunblock we found out was bad for us?? I have a good use for it. I've been using it on water hoses and black rubber bungies for several years with some good results. One white hose was in the sun continually on my boat dock in Florida for close to 6 years. Tho I was a newer on on our HM, the old one is still in good shape. I also have several old black bungies that have withstood the Az sun for a few years. I dress the hoses a couple times a year being sure to wipe off excess. It seems to work quite well, so I'm thinking of trying it on window seals and a few other things.

Anyone heard of or used sunblock like this??

I've never tried that but will see how it works here in Colorado. BTW - I've never heard that sunblock was bad for us. Where did you hear that?

I've never used the stuff on my skin, but my comment came from articals I've read.

I prefer to use 303 Protectant. 303 is specifically designed to provide UV protection for rubber and plastic, and it doesn't contain any of the oils and/or fragrances that might harm rubber and plastic.
