    I'm trying to find either handcuffs or a leash that won't rust, are stainless steel cuffs and chain leashes generally rust-proof? I plan to use them in my shower with my pet. I know some chain leashes have a leather handle on them though so that might not be a good idea.

    I have never seen a stainless steel that would rust

    You could also shop for nylon strap restraints and cuffs. They have plastic closures, dry well and won't present a problem a long as you let them dry.

    Nylon rope can work the same way, but you'll have to whip the ends with rubber cement or thread instead of tape.

    Make sure you let the stuff dry after each use, and I wouldn't leave them in the shower unless there's good circulation so that you don't get mold, mildew.

    The stainless steel won't rust under normal conditions (wet then dry) but if constantly exposed to moisture, you might get some rust since even stainless steel items have different qualities.
    Because of cost, some chains are steel plated (or dipped) instead of all stainless steel.

    Your best bet is to dry and treat your steel products immediately after it gets wet.
    Dry it, then spray it with mineral oil, or other lubricating oil (not vegetable) and use a towel to wipe off the excess. You can use baby oil if you like.

    Also, if you use leather restraints with steel you're gonna have to use mink oil to treat the leather and make it waterproof. Even then it will take constant care to maintain it. I would use the nylon.

    Lastly.... showers are slippery, and chains and handcuffs are not forgiving. Be careful not to harm your sub with your fantasies.
    I'm guessing we're talking about the cold shower/bath punishment.
    Use a panic snap (same care suggestions apply).

    That sounds like a better idea, nylon cuffs are softer than steel, it'll be safer considering like you said showers are of course slippery and it's easier to break your wrist on steel cuffs. I'm getting a shower mat to prevent slipping but it would be a good idea to get those too... Probably cheaper anyway, and I like cheap :p
