Frozen door seals - 01-13-2010, 02:45 PM

What is the best product to treat rubber door seals & window tracks with to help prevent frozen doors & windows after a washing. Sometimes ya just can't wait for a warming spell. Ric

In the winter time I treat the door jam seals with PAM the cooking spray and then wipe down with a microfiber. Keeps doors from sticking shut and cheap. Paul

Paul not sure cooking oil won't have a long term effect of drying out the rubber

I regularly clean/treat all of my own vehicle's weather stripping with PB's Natural Look. Normally works out quite well, but I will tell you after this most recent bout of cold weather...don't do it. It will be a problem. Luckily, we don't see this kind of cold often...like usually more than a decade between occurrences.

I don't know if 1Z's Gummi Pflege or Tiefenpfleger would be any different. I have both, but NL is what I had on when the cold weather hit.

water-based products will tend to have that problem

That certainly has a ring of reason.

If I lived where it got real cold all the time, I might be forced to treat my rubber weatherstriping with a silicone grease with the understanding that though it might get on my clothing (if I weren't careful when entering or exiting the vehicle), but I wouldn't be in a wrestling match with my doors

Thanks everyone. Looks like I'll give the TR a try and hope it smells as good as the natural look. Ric

But NL cleans and protects in one-step. You know I'm always in a hurry.

It smells different, but good.
