I use silicone grease to restore or keep rubber parts in good pliable condition.

303 Aerospace protectant. I swear by it. It's the only stuff I've found that has UV protection with regular use. It's brought faded plastic and rubber back to life. I found it cheaper to get the gallon jug from Camping World and buy a spray bottle. Check out this link for more information.

I use “Roller Cleaner or Roller Rejuvenator”, our techs use it to clean feed tires on office machines and printing equipment. Most have natural rubber rollers and that stuff will not dry them out, you can get it at office supply stores.

when protecting your rubber, always use water based lubricants, not Petro based
