door rubbers are creaky

hi people!

couple days ago after some serious cleaning, I applied sonax gummi pflege* to my door rubbers. I don't know why, but I've thought It's good for cold weather. unfortunately my doors started to create creaky sounds like leather jackets on very low speeds, speed bumps and bad road. Even I'm cleaning the rubbers everytime with wet towel and dry towel I've never been able to get rid of from that crazy sounds. my car is only in 15k kms.

I'm thinking to apply silicone lubricant spray. What do you recommend me to do?

*product: SONAX gummi pflege (100ml bottle, sponge on it)

In the past i have used a degreaser on all rubbers and anything that comes into contact with them, then left to air dry this cured my squeeky seals. I have also read that swissvax rubber feed is good but expensive if it doesn't cure it for you. I was told once to be careful when applying polish, wax, sealant not to get any on the rubbers as this can cause some squeeking i dont know how accurate that info was though.

makes sense if they use the same rubber on the f56 mini mine are worse with the new design softer ones after having them changed due to rubbing the paint work

I got the Teflon tape fix applied by the BMW dealer to my f30. There's a technical bulletin for it apparently - that's if the op actually has a BMW. So far so good.

You need to fully degrease using something like surfer HD then apply Carbaflo to the seals.

Ive got this with my mk4 golf 3 door (bigger doors so even more creak), its really bad, tried all sorts and nothing has worked!

Will try a strong greaser next.

I found tape solutions online but i think tapes will make poor contact between door and body. may cause heating problems as well. are you facing those problems?
