How to care for weatherstrip?

My '06 has seen little rain but while waiting for a cover it has been exposed to several days of it. I'd like to keep the weatherstrip in good condition- what do you recommend I use for it?

Is Mother's Back to Black appropriate?

Do your mean the rubber or the plastic trim moulding? Silicone spray for the rubber parts.
I use Turtle wax ice for the plastic areas.

I am sure that is fine. You just do not want to use something that may dry out you weatherstripping. To be honest I really do not use anything on mine. I just keep it clean and it looks great.

i would go to parts store and get a can of silicone comes with a lid that unscrews and there is a thick wire with a ball of cloth that you just dip and then rub it alover your door seals repells water and keeps them real soft.
