The pantyhose thing may have worked for a few miles 50 years ago.....with todays vehicles, not a chance.
Buy a new belt.

Thanks for some stimulating reading and good info. Interesting enough the can label says it is for serpentine belts as well as v-belts. (Don't fired up folks, I'm not going to use it on my serpentine belt.) I don't need a new serpentine as of yet, but may give it a try on the v-belt of my riding mower.

I just caught this old post. The last time I used belt dressing was around 1994 and after it eat up the internals of the alternator the very next day, I would never use it again. Come to think about it, I haven't seen belt dressing in the stores for a long time.

I think you can find belt dressing next to Fuster Banana's Snake Oil Elixor and Mort's Chrome Muffler Bearings.
This is a product that creates a need by its own marketing. If the belt is not working properly, you replace it. Even on a riding mower.
Mr. Goldie, thank you for serving in the U.S. Marines. I appreciate your service and that of every Marine. I always feel better when there are Marines around.1994 Chevy K2500 Silverado, 454 (modified), original owner.
