Baby oil and even a little vegetable oil can work too but again be very careful not to get them in the tank.

Vaseline(petroleum jelly) works get, I also tape the edges in place,

However to removing it can be a chore!

The first thing I do is
fill the tank with hot water (heat will soften the Vaseline)
Add more Vaseline to bare spots and re-install
Older(reused) backgrounds are more brittle, so I use a 2-3 inch window squeegee (piece of softer rubber)

Too remove all the Vaseline, while it is soft from the heat wipe with paper towels(rags will do)
Then spray an ‘orange degreaser’ (home depot brand works best ‘ZEP’) and let it sit 20 to 30 minutes
Then wipe and clean, Repeat if needed

Finally I rinse and re-rinse the inside and outside of the tank

Handy hints there carapace, thanks for adding that.
I usually use a credit card/store card swipped along the background to remove all bubbles. ONE Tip I will give is never use cotton wool to wipe of any excess.........what a mess that makes. Yes I did it lol, I had run out of kitchen paper so grabbed a lump of cotton wool without thinking.

Vaseline must be cheaper than this...

Has anyone here ever used this? Is it worth paying £4 plus for? Perhaps it has some advantages over Vaseline.

I haven't used it personally but from what I have heard its just another way of these places making money, stick with vaseline (excuse the pun :-): )

A friend of mine bought a similar product, in all honesty it was like babyoil, hers cost about £6 for a tiny bottle. Personally I think its just a money grabber. I stick to vaseline or if you havent got that veg oil works too.
