I stupidly decided to delay my order of new chamois cream from Wiggle, thinking that even if I run out I won't notice a big difference. I ran out yesterday and I sure did notice! I just didn't feel as comfortable on the saddle without it. So now I have to wait until my new cream arrives.
In the meantime, does anyone use some kind of homemade chamois cream?
Why not just go down to the LBS and buy some? Maybe a little more expensive but no waiting or toiling over a witch's cauldron.
I wonder if the mother in law could make me some :-)
I read somewhere, an old recipe for chamois cream, you can make at home.
Take 200 g fresh pork fat, 200 ml extra virgin olive oil, 200 g butter, and put in a pan. Add 8 tbsp vaseline and 2 tsp of good quality bike axle grease ( e.g submarine grease). Heat gently to mix, stirring all the time. Do not let boil. When cool, apply liberally, and stay away from dogs.
