    Started with stan's then switched to slime pro, which seems to last much longer. I have whipped up my first batch of home brew (windshield fluid and latex) and will be experimenting with that soon...

    Why isn't Slime used as opposed to Stan's?

    Both Stans and OS use natural latex so yes they can be mixed. The only sealant I'm aware of that does use natural latex is Cafelatex which has a unique artificial base. It can't be mixed with natural latex. Read the ingredients, natural always mixes with natural, even with Slime mixed in.

    IME, again, homebrew is as reliable as any commercial latex sealant and SUBSTANTIALLY less expensive.

    Old enough to know better. And old enough not to care. Best age to be.
