    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?

    Sounds like you're talking about 303 Aerospace Protectant...well that's what I use.

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

    I use silicone spray. Spray it into a paper towel, then apply to the weatherstriping.

    +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.

    I would agree with 303...I need to get a new bottle. I've also used Back to Black on the really rough spots on my sunroof in the scion.
