Messed up rubber on door seals

Washed my 08 e90 at the hand-car wash the other day. They had a "foam gun" that sprayed out pinkish foamy suds that you soak the car with before washing.

After washing it, now the rubber seals that face outward are mottled white/gray. I'm pretty sure it was from this foam soap.

I tried using Einszett Rubber care, as well as the BMW Tiefenpflegge stuff, but neither has removed the stuff on the rubber.

I'm now wondering if the stuff also stripped the Zaino off the paint.

Anyone have any suggestions other than not using the car wash again?

Try wiping the rubber down with a MF and Aerospace 303 Protectant. Not sure re the Zaino but you do need to be a bit careful with some wash shampoos stripping LSPs like Zaino. Is water still beading well ? - although this isnít the only measure of whether its still there or not.
