I think my shorts were destroyed by noxema(10 posts)

I think my shorts were destroyed by noxemaishmael

Ive been using Noxema as a lube for the last couple of weeks and now both pairs of my nice voler shorts are threadbare in the front and you can see my penis. The material is like a see-thru shirt that a sexy woman might wear. I'm going to disturb the other riders at red lights if I keep wearing them. There isnt the slightest friction in that area that could have done this, I'm pretty sure its the noxema. Anyone else use it? Now that I'm planning on getting a new bib, do you think 5'8" could fit into a small voler, Ive bee using medium in the shorts but want a more svelt look(no I want them tighter because I think it might be better fitting)

try walgreen's house brand of cold cream for a very cheap and effective anti-chaffe cream. Make sure you get their unscented stuff, otherwise PHEW it'll wake you up!

What could be cheaper and more effective than Bag Balm? These lotion like products are not designed to stay on the skin's surface for hours. And although Bag Balm will ultimately discolor the chamois, it doesn't structurally damage the fabric.

And Noxema in the crotch... ummm ... doesn't it sting? It's got that "cooling" stuff in it. Great for sunburn but ...
Second the bag balm, but it's not without drawbacks.Alex-in-Evanston

It smells bad, won't wash off your fingers, and is just all around unpleasant to put on. It feels nasty on your thighs, gunks up in your hair, and stains your shorts.

However - it does a good job of preventing chafe.

Ditto to all those criticism! (nm)jtolleson

What are the active ingredients/carriers in Chamois Cream?Alex-in-Evanston

I'd like to find a generic equivalent.

I can't believe that Noxema could do what you say, but for what it's worth I use Dr. Naylor's udder balm. Works great, doesn't smell all that bad, and has less lanolin than Bag balm so you don't soften your skin too much.

Why don't you E Mail Voler with your concerns? I have been using noxema for years on various shorts without any problems. I do put the noxema on me, rather than the shorts
You don't say what you weigh but I think you might be pushing it a bit by going to a small
plus do you apply noxema to your unit?ColnagoFE
