    Home made tire sealant.

    There was an old thread about making your own inexpensive sealant but I can't seem to find it. Anyone out there experiment with making there own tire sealant? Could you share your recipe? Thanks!

    There are lots of recipes. Apparently this was a hot topic over on WeightWeenies.com within the last few weeks. Mine is about as simple as it gets. 1/4 cup water and 1 tablesspoon liquid latex. It'll take a 20-30 minutes for the latex to fully dissolve in the water. I bought some little Rubbermaid containers for $.50/container. I've always got two ready to go, but the last batch I mixed up was 7-8 months ago. Other ingredients include Slime & window cleaner to name a few.
