Einszett Rubber Care stick

I just tried the Einszett 914806 'Gummi Pflege Stift' Rubber Care Stick for the first time. Wow! Great results. Makes the weather stripping and other rubber seals look and feel brand new. Apply, let dry 15 minutes, then check out the results.

Hmm, sounds good... Maybe I'll give it a try.

One thing: Since the door windows seal against the weatherstripping, do the windows get stained with the rubber care stuff?

Not a deal breaker, but I was just wondering...

So far so good, and I have tinted windows. I would let it sit 15-20 minutes to dry before closing doors.

OK... No residue after it dries?

Nope! I'm really loving this stuff.

Plexus Plexus Plastic Cleaner, Protectant and Polish is another one of my favorites for everything plastic (headlights, tail lights, side markers, etc).

I have one myself and I've used it a couple times but I'm not that impressed. Maybe the next time I'll see better result.

If you don't want any residue, after you apply and let it dry, wipe it off.
I didn't wipe off but the residue isn't really that noticeable

That's what I figured: let it soak, then wipe off any excess.

On my E36, I was using Vinylex and though it worked well, it always left some oily residue on the glass where it contacts the weatherstripping... Even after wiping off the excess... And then it would get smeared across the glass when you raised and lowered the window.

I've been doing some research into what to use on my door seals to eliminate the wind noise I hear sometimes at highway speeds. I've found that using silicon based products is a no no and that is why BMW stopped offering the gummi pflege and now offer Carbaflo. Any body have input on this?

According to Auto Geek (link) it has no silicone and is safe for rubber.

1Z Einszett Rubber Care Stick “Gummi Pflege” conditions rubber weather seals on car doors, windows and trunks, protects and keeps the rubber elastic, restores color to dried out rubber, protects against extreme temperature and UV rays. Einszett’s solvent-free, water-based formula is packaged in an easy-to-use shoe polish-type applicator that makes application simple and neat.

1Z Einszett Rubber Care Stick has become a staple item in the garages of detailers who’ve tried it. It is an incredible rubber protectant that maintains the look, feel, and function of rubber door seals and surfaces from day one. It leaves a natural-looking, protective finish that blocks out the elements and keeps rubber looking like new.

1Z Einszett Rubber Care Stick “Gummi Pflege” is a real standout product among rubber protectants because it is water-based and non-silicone. Silicone gives rubber products their shine but it attracts dust and dries out the rubber over time. 1Z Einszett Rubber Care Stick protects the rubber under a safe, water-based formula that does not attract dust and it’s healthy for the rubber.

1Z Einszett Rubber Care Stick “Gummi Pflege” isn’t a dye or darkener. The treated rubber will look conditioned, but there is no artificial color. If your rubber needs restoration, apply Forever Black Bumper and Trim Dye and allow it to dry. Then apply Gummi Pflege to the rubber to maintain the look and feel of the rubber.

1Z Einszett Rubber Care Stick “Gummi Pflege” is capable of withstanding extreme temperatures so you can use it underneath the hood on rubber hoses. It maintains their flexibility and, of course, keeps them looking great.

1Z Einszett Rubber Care Stick “Gummi Pflege” is packaged in a sponge-tipped applicator bottle, which makes it extremely easy to apply it to rubber weatherstripping.

If you want to maintain your car’s rubber surfaces or you are looking to recondition weathered surfaces, 1Z Einszett Rubber Care Stick “Gummi Pflege” is a tried and true solution.

I didn't know that -- I still have some gummi pflege in little packets from BMW with the Roundel and a BMW part number. Must be NLA.

Have you tried this stuff yet? I put it on all my seals recently (door, hood, trunk), they seriously look and feel brand new even after some time has gone by. I also used it on the rubber surrounding the windshield.

No, not yet. I haven't even ordered it yet!
