Black streaks from new rubber seals

Anyone got any tips of how to stop black streaks from a new car after a wash?

Have they had a dressing as mine do that if I over apply a dressing as the water runoff when it rains or something?

I see those streaks when working in car wash but those was on very old and neglected cars/seals and almost imposible to get rid of them no matter how much seals are washed. It seems they can "bleed black" forever.
Newer see such on a new car.
If mine I will contact dealer and ask for waranty (better quality seals) as that for me seems like bad quality ones.

Not much you can do I'm afraid other than use a blower to fully dry the area but that wont stop the streaks if and when it rains or after damp mornings. Curse of owning a white car I'm afraid.

The streaking below the petrol flap should be easy to control, just makes sure you wash and dry this area fully, it can easily get overlooked but I always wash and dry the petrol cap area on mine. Water streaking from the door mirrors is a bit more harder to stop other than making sure you dry the area as best you can. As I said a blower will help or you could try these - https://www.microfibermadness.de/en/product/dropnetic

This is completely normal, even for new cars. Not something to contact the dealer about.
