Yep, polymer clay and hot tubs don't mix.

When we lived in NH, I made a polymer pendant necklace for friends of ours, on leather cord. They returned it twice for to refinish it, which was weird because it looked etched and eroded. Finally, after a very gentle question-and-answer session, I found out the guy loved it so much, he NEVER took it off. And they used their hit tub every night, especially in the winter. I did a little research and discovered the chemicals in the water we're eating away at the polymer. He promised not to do wear it in the hot tub again. Wish I'd known about ArmorAll! Although it probably would have melted off in the hot water....
