How To Stop Squeaky Vinyl


We are making a Returns style catwoman suit for my wife. We using mainly costume store type items, and received the vinyl catsuit today. It fits perfect and looks great (pics will come sometime once my BAt suit is done too).

However, the suit squeaks when she moves or rubs together. Like a new pair of cords's, it's funny to hear her walk. She squeaks from her legs and arms rubbing. What's the best way to stop this? Wear the catsuit until the "new" wears off. Is there a "magic solution" to rub on it to keep it from doing that? You guys have been great about giving me suggestions on how to solve these type of questions.

Again, I appreciate everyone's help.

Re: how to stop squeaky vinyl


no answers, but moving this topic to the main forum along with your other one. you'll probably get more answers if it's in there. (also, the costume vault forum is pretty much only for showing off personal costumes. the main forum is the place to ask technical questions about costuming.) hope you get a good answer!

and hey, once you have some pics of your wife in her catsuit, post *those* in the costume vault. :lol

no problem, man, it's not even a thing. you're still a newish member and we take mercy on your kind. :lol

not everyone knows what each forum is for, or they may not be sure where to post something occassionally, so we just move stuff where it belongs if we need to. no big deal. :hug

Re: how to stop squeaky vinyl


search for "vinyl care" on Google.
lots of sites would show up for conditioning vinyl.
like this - http://store.bikedepot.net/leathercare.html

Re: how to stop squeaky vinyl


My wife had a pair of shoes that squeaked every time she moved her foot in them.

I sprayed some Turtle Wax 2001 Super Protectant (4.99 at the auto store) on a paper towel and then applied it to the problem area. No more squeaks.

Good luck. (and looking forward to the pics!!)

Re: how to stop squeaky vinyl...solved


I kinda took all of the suggestions and tried a car cleaner (Armor All) on the suit. No more squeak. It's also been over a week too. Did the same thing to Haydon's suit (since it's PVC vinyl), and no more squeaks. Thanks everybody for the suggestions.
