ArmourAll? Be interested to find if there is anything more specialised,
though.

Would someone please tell me what they use to soften rubber
trim. Mine are
dry and getting brittle.

Armor All is really awful stuff. It penetrates the rubber and then
evaporates out quickly. This tends to cause the rubber to fail sooner
than later. In my gas station days, working in the bays doing tune-ups
and lube jobs, we used a rubber lubricant/conditioner specifically
designed for rubber and synthetic rubber parts. It was a yellowish
opaque liquid, worked wonders, and stayed in/on the material. We bought
our supplies from an industrial chemical wholesaler. Because it worked
so well, no doubt it has been outlawed in California.
