    As per the title I am looking for advice as to what to use to clean and condition the rubber seals around the window and roof. I've heard about gummy pledge (or something sounding similar!!) but I can't seem to source where to buy it. Also heard silicon spray is good (???) but I had a horrible experience of it getting on the windscreen and it's not nice on the motorway in the rain!!

    So I'm looking for recommendations to products AND where to buy them from (preferably the web!)

    Thanks

    I used the Einszett Gummi Plegge Stift and I am very happy with it.

    This is the place to buy it from: http://www.einszett.co.uk/Gummi-Pflege.php

    I got 2 bottles from them and got the 10% discount, received the next day.

    Hope this helps,
    Sol
