Weatherstrip Maint

What you guys do to maintain your weatherstripping? I recall reading something (not on the boards) about apply a lite film of some type of oil or grease after cleaning them. It keeps the moisture in them or something.

Anyone recall anything about this?

Probably not a bad idea, but it seems like oil would attract dirt and dust which would make it worse.

+1 on 303 Aerospace Protectant. Works great on any rubber/interior moldings. I even do the sidewalls to clean them up. Its not greasy either.
