Does chamois creme have any effect on the life of cycling shorts? I know it's made to be used for cycling but does it make the chamois (or maybe a synthetic one) wear out faster?

  • I'm not certain either, which is why I use it only when I think I'll have to. Oct 20, 2010 at 3:10

As a followup to my answer on "Picking Chamois Creme", BodyGlide hasn't affected the life of my shorts so far after 3 years of heavy use. But it never completely washes out either. My experience with other products is too limited to comment.
