Does anybody know how to keep rubber from getting hard and brittle?

(It's for Sister. She's getting on in years and is starting to crack. I want to keep her supple.)

You could spray her with silicon, but then she'd be all greasy. Hmmm.

I don't know-- but I would love to find out. I have a rubber gargoyle (named "squeaky gargoyle") that is shriveling up and cracking and I don't know how to stop it!

BTW this is my first time commenting but I've read your blog for years. You even inspired my sister and I to start

"Try some Aqua Seal (brand) Silicon Pump It's a spray bottle of Silicon and it really shines 'em up. Available at most dive shops."

There's a dive shop in Evanston at Asbury and Oakton.
