NEXTZETT’S RUBBER CARE STICK
£8 ● nextzett.de Rating: ★★★★
Adetailing trade secret, the Gummi Pflege Stift (rubber care stick) conditions rubber weather seals around car doors and windows. The water-based product applied using the built-in foam applicator reduces squeaks from seals and keeps the rubber supple and elastic, protecting it against high temperature and UV rays. I’ve used them on all our vehicles for years, and it keeps the door and boot seals looking and feeling like new, maintaining their sealing performance.
The tiny bottle seems never to get empty. You only need a minute amount of product every time you treat the seals – and that’s three to four times a year. It’s just as useful in the summer ‘feeding’ the drying rubber as it in the winter when it prevents the seals from freezing and sticking. To keep the foam applicator clean, I recommend cleaning the seals with a damp microfibre before use. VERDICT: Essential for maintaining seal performance.
