Bug Spray and climbing

Post by kootenayhick » Tue May 24, 2016 12:09 pm

I have an all natural bug spray that uses distilled water and a combination of four essential oils, and NOT containing DEET. If I spray it on my body and clothing before climbing will these essential oils weaken the fibers of the climbing ropes?

I find that using Bens 30% deet to treat my rope allows it to glide smoothly through my draws as well as giving it a great scent and taste when I am clipping! :lol:
