    Bobs' tip of the day....WD40.....Inside the car door locks, the rubber door seals and the area on the doors where the seal meets the door. Helps your car doors from being frozen shut....Just Saying.

    Does that really work on the rubber door seals? On the news this morning, they were going over different things to do with your car, like alcohol in your locks to unfreeze them, but they didn't say anything about door seals. I pointed that out to my wife, saying that's probably the biggest issue we'll have with our cars.

    I would only think cooking oil would work just as well as WD....Good idea.

    Think what cooking oil will do in the freezing temps around 20. It becomes a paste.

    I've found parking the vehicle in the garage has worked quite well in the past.:):D

    Gun oil is good..
    But in a pinch, so is Vaseline, Crisco, hand lotion, shampoo, or plain ol' spit.

    Petroleum base oils will break down rubber I think.Use to wear rubber boots in the mines ,and would get hydraulic oil on them,they would swell and bubble up.I just spray cooking oil on a paper towel,and wipe the rubber down, more or less keeps the moisture off

    I think this has moved into the Sexual Lubricants area....
    KY Jelly would also work on the door seals.
    Olive Oil will work wonders to slide things into tight places as well as ice proof the door seals.

    WD-40 is actually good for rubber door seals.
