View Full Version : Rejuvenating BC fabric

12-26-2007, 08:23
I have a 2 1/2 year old Brigade. It has about 200 dives on it.
I throughly clean it after each trip. Lately, I've noticed that the fabric isn't quite as
soft and flexible as it used to be once it dries after cleaning.
I have used a bit of wetsuit cleaner to clean it and
I do use BC Life conditioner on the inside of the bladder but not on the outside
of the BC when cleaning.

Is there anything I can or should be doing to treat the fabric to help
rejuvenate or "soften" it up?
Perhaps using BC conditioner on the outside or rinsing in a standard fabric softener?

I just purchased a new BCD and would also be interested in the best way to keep it in good shape.
