Mold on door rubbers


Looking for some advice here. I have a 159 3.2 2006

Some (if not all ) of my external door / windows rubber seals seem to have some sort of black mold on them. I've tried using autoglyms rubber & Vinyl trim cleaner to see if I could remove , but although it has taken some of it off , some still remains.

I've also tried using a small hard bristle brush, but again some remains .

Has anyone else had the same problem , and if so , what have you used to get rid.

Many Thanks in advance

Sometimes a cloth is better than a brush. I would use a dedicated cleaner but you could try some supermarket cleaner such as Stardrops or any one of the All Purpose Cleaners. Apply (diluted) mixture to the rubber and let it dwell for a minute and then start rubbing. Finishing by giving it and the surrounding area a damn good rinse to remove all of the cleaner. Sometimes it can take several treatments to remove everything. Once everything is nice and clean then apply a exterior dressing to keep it looking nice
