what rubber cleaner do you use

as the title suggests...

what do you use to clean the rubber around the windows and door seals etc? it seems mine are bogging and when it rains they leave trails on my paintwork.

Still on my to try list, Adams tyre and rubber. The cost puts me off slightly. Currently using bilt hamber surfex and I can't see how it can be better.

I was using Adams,it’s a great product but I couldn’t warrant the cost when Koch green star does a good enuf job for a fraction of the price

Adams is definitely better for sure! But again it's expensive compared to my Koch Chemie GS that does a fantastic job anyway!

i went for BH Surfex. I like that BH keep their prices low even though they know their stuff is well thought of.

If the surfex doesnt cut it i can use it for other stuff as it appears to be well thought of as a general purpose cleaner.

Thank you for your recommendations guys much appreciated
