If you have a shower and no tub access, make up a bowl of
soapy water and wipe it liberally over your pad one area at
you get it clean and at the same time
find the leak when the bubbles bubble
Patch with kit of **good** bike tire patches..mine was patched
two years ago from a thorn puncture and still going strong--
I used a bike tire patch.
