I hadn't heard that about gaskets.
I don't paddle in salt water frequently...but my friends on the coast say their gear starts to get pretty funky. Sea water is a pretty fertile medium for bacteria to grow.
I frequently pee in my drysuit to stay warm, so it is good to unfunk it
Yeah, I use Simple Green to cut the body oils and the funk. I do the same rinse on my gear after freshwater trips too is it is a warm day and I start sweating hard. When I was guiding everyday my gear gets pretty ripe. We would wash the customer gear daily the same way.
