    I bought some STAR BRITE Waterproofing Treatment with PTEF to apply to our tents and am wondering if it is safe to use on ski outerwear. Goretex has some type of teflon so it must not be too hazardous, but of course searching on the internet it's easy to find the health issues posed by teflon, bok choi, and of course the dreaded sugar in organge juice. I usually go through a bottle of TX Direct every year, but this could be a less expensive all purpose waterproofing product.

    btw it's on sale at west marine
