Curious as to what you guys use to keep weatherstripping and rubbers seals coated as to keep them supple and not dry out.
Thanks.

Personally wouldn't use Armor All on my dog's out house.

For years have been using a silicone oil, and, or, a silicone grease depending on which I have at the time. Not the cheap silicone spray which comes in a spray can, that I use on my snow blower chute. If you can't find an oil or grease you can use the spray.
Spray it on a small square of clothe and generously apply it to the gasket. Let sit for a while to absorb, than wipe with a moist (water) towel to remove the excess.

I guess we all settle in on a product that gives us good results. On my 84 SS, I've used Armor All on my seals and dash and interior pieces and my interior looks like the day it rolled off the line.
