Ode to silicone

I just want to take a minute to draw everyone's attention to how amazing silicone is:

  • Hair ties that grip the hair and don't lose tension over many reuses

  • Caulk

  • Cookware that is heat-resistant, soft, grippy, and easy to clean including colanders, potholders, ice cube trays, muffin "pans", and utensils

  • Silicone lubricant -- it's not water based and does not degrade latex!

  • Drysuit neck seals that are stretchier than latex, and at the same time don't stretch out permanently and start leaking

  • Medical uses like implants, contact lenses, etc.

  • Neverwet

QED.
