Rubber strap care or preservation

Hi crunchers

Does anyone know of, or have ways to keep good care of rubber straps to stop them deteriorating or going brittle over time?

I have a couple of Bell and Ross straps, they are not cheap, and showing signs of cracking where the tang is.

I have already had one B&R strap snap completely but that was nearly 8 years old.

Is there anything that can be applied or used to clean to keep them more supple and longer lasting?


Not sure but saved this post for my own knowledge!
