'Soften' old rubber

ER Classics Desktop 2022

rubberHandy tip from a reader. The way to make hardened rubber from windows, for example, soft and usable again: put them in an (old) pillowcase, then in the washing machine, add an overdose of fabric softener and wash at 50 degrees. This way, this rubber is not only clean, but also flexible again! Do ask permission from 'the partner', because before you know it, your exercise ends in a fierce argument ...
