Bib leg grippers/tightness

Does anyone have any tips for getting silicone leg grippers grippy again? Maybe some light sanding? Anything to shrink legs to get the bibs tight/not riding up again?

There's "Shoe Goo" which is used by surfers, scuba divers to repair wetsuits etc...maybe dab some of this on with a thin brush...it's like liquid silicone but longer lasting and more grip?

shoe goo dries too hard and would most likely dig into your skin if used on the bands of warmers.

silicone adhesive sealant from any hardware store is very similar in consistency to stock grippers on warmers. I've used it on the backs of my sunglasses, backs of headbands, sealing wiring on the lighting system on my commuter, etc.

There is a polyurethane wetsuit glue called Aquaseal/Aquasure that may fit the bill. Unlike Shoe Goo, it stays soft and pliable aftet curing even down into low temperatures. Just don't let evaporating toluene touch your skin or get into your lungs as it cures.

I had this kind of problem with my team's clothing; grippers wouldnt....grip!
The only solution I found was getting the shorts 1cm tightened at the end of the leg (where there's the elastic).
It didnt resolve totally the problem but helped a bit.
