Default Exterior rubber cleaner/preservative.

Can anyone recommend a product to clean and protect black rubber exterior items such as window and door seals? Something with weather resistance.



Autoglym do a vinyl and rubber care but it reads like it's for the interior.

Hi.

Start with a really good clean with an "All Purpose Cleaner" using something like an old toothbrush to get them really clean.

Then use Gtechnic C4 and ideally cover the car/put it in a garage overnight to allow the coating to cure.

If you've never heard of Gtechniq, they are a small company based between Northampton & Daventry and make many excellent products:

Hope that helps and Good Luck.

Thanks Andy.

Is it definitely suitable for rubber? The trim mentioned seems to be solid.

It's mentioned and recommended on the Detailing World forum (https://detailingworld.co.uk/). There's a fair few of us on here that are on there also - and yes, I have the same username.

Give Gtechniq a ring and ask. I've found them to be honest, decent folks to deal with.

Looking forward to the photos .
