    A Simple DIY Way to Waterproof Anything

    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Neat LT, good to learn something new. I imagine the odor might take a while to dissipate. It would be worth an experiment to test seam sealing and zipper operation on an old daypack. I used spray-on Plasti-dip once on a tail bag and it made zipper operation difficult. Bag's contents staid nice and dry but somewhat inaccessible.. I had rejected using silicone then due to knowing the way it attracts and holds dust.

    Good tip. I use the aerosol silicone spray (Holt's) on things like tent, rifle bags, kit bags etc. Works pretty well with no zipper fouling and doesn't collect dust. Also works fairly well as a release agent if you're into moulding things or working with glass-fibre resin.

    It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
    And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!

    It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.
