    Get a few detailing tips (or just some biggish q-tips) for cleaning gunk out from between seal and window. AutoGlym rubber and vinyl protect seems to be great for my seals in terms of keeping them clean and having a nice black to them, although I've no idea whether it will prevent mould buildup. I'd have thought you could just give them a bit of a scrub with a microfibre with a bit of dettol on to get rid of that, then a thorough rinsing and put some rubber protector on.

    All purpose cleaner (Megs APC or AS G101), spray on agitate with a brush.

    You can protect them with Autogylm vinyl & rubber or similar. Gtechniq C4 gets good write ups

    APC as said. I use Megs, but they go crazy over Tesco Daisy APC over on Detailing World.

    Auto Glym Vinyl and Rubber is pretty good, as is 303.

    As for actual cleaning. I never let mine get moss bad! But regardless, i like a jet wash, gets right in there.
