F06 rubber seals going white

Hi guys

Quick one, has anyone noticed some of their rubber seals on their cars turning white?

Looks terrible , but don't want to use tyre shine or anything that will dry it out more.

And if so what treatment did you use ?

I suppose like leather, rubber needs to be fed.

My daughters VW EOS is very prone to roof leaks if the rubber is not properly treated. There is a lot of info on a product called Krytox, by Dupont. I have some, conditions the rubber nicely, and turns it nice and black, though the liquid is clear. I would recommend this stuff.

There is also a product called Gummi Pflege. Also has high marks.

Then there are always the products from 3M.

Lots of options.

there are vast numbers of detailing products that can assist here both cleaning and treating the rubber. At a pinch even some Vaseline on a lint free cloth will do the job just as well.
