actually i made a mistake in my original post - it's silicone spray lubricant   
(with an "e").                                                                  
i just buy the cheapest stuff i can conveniently find and use it liberally      
on the rubber seals.                                                            
for best results, let it sit overnight with the doors open so that the seals    
can absorb the lube and swell up to their original size and shape for a         
better seal.                                                                    
no need to rub it in or wipe it off - it will all be absorbed and/or
