Tip for preserving bungee cords in the sun...
- I found that bungee cords are useful for a variety of things but quickly
deteriorate in the sun. I reasoned that since sunblock blocks UV rays for
humans, it might also work on bungees.
- As a test, I took two new bungees, rubbed sunblock on one and not the
other, then stretched them side by side where they would each get the same
amount of sun. After two weeks, the bungee without sunblock had deteriorated
to the point at which I would normally replace it, while the one treated
showed no signs of sun damage.
- My sunblocked bungee has lasted for two seasons.
