Seriously though I always have it in a plastic tub that seals, so it really doesn't make the car damp/smell. I do try to take it out and rinse if theres no waves for a few days, but if I'm surfing consecutive days I can't be arsed. I wear my suits out before they have a chance rot, so its not like I'm shortening the life really..

A few guys round here tip a hot water bottle/flask of warm water into their suits before putting them on.
Neoprene is not alive preeeecious
How certain are we that this stuff does'nt kill neoprene?
Neoprene is the trade name given to synthesized polychloroprene by the DuPont corporation. It is resistant to chemicals because of its inert chemical formula that renders the compound stable when acted upon by outside forces.
Neoprene does degrade when exposed to natural elements such as sun, ozone, temperature changes, burning and weather. Designed as a substitute for rubber, the formula does not react to oil and many other chemicals. Further, it exhibits a resistance to physical wear from flexing or twisting.
