Lubrication for dry rubber bushes????

Does anyone know of any sort of lubrication for dry rubber bushes....

If been told to stay away from WD40 etc as it can eat into the RUBBER......

I'll call into Halfords on my way home and see what I can find...

Mine are making all dry due to LOTS of STEAM washing...!
