it's not bad at all for the bladders the problem is when you get a hole, and need to do a repair, the baby powder is all over the bladder, so if you just do a regular stick with tear air or a fix it valve, it will peel off. On a regular bladder, you can just use rubbing alcohol to clean, but on a bladder with baby powder I will always make sure to lightly sand the bladder before fixing a hole, it not only gets the powder off so your patch will stick, it also gives you a better mechanical adhesion -- which I guess is something you should do every repair, but it is especially important if a bladder has powder on it, make sure you sand it before a patch.dandaka wrote:I've always used baby powder to put bladders in place. Few times heard, that it is bad for bladders. Can someone confirm / confute this statement?
