cleaning rubber window seals

I recommend Einszett plastic and rubber deep cleaner with a brush. It's very easy to use, and cleans the seals very very well.

As john mentioned, a great cleaner is the einszett plastic cleaner. It may take a couple applications, but it'll take the rubber back to its original satin look.

Once you've cleaned, condition with a high quality rubber conditioner like Swissvax Pneu. This product won't build up and it penetrated the rubber well. It also works great on tires as well.

We no longer use either of those products. Thread is pretty old.

I'll post some before/afters and what we use now.

Moe,

I interested in finding a product to restore the rubber seals. What do you currently use for this type of issue. I am seeing discoloration on the seals at the door jam on the outside of my windows. Can this be restored, or should it be replaced?
