Used 303 Protectant. Now my car Squeaks

I used 303 Aerospace protectant on my door seals. Now my drivers side door makes squeaking noises everytime I go over an uneven surface of the road (which is 99% of the road in houston).

I tried to use water to wipe off the 303 from the seals, but that didn't help anything.

Anyone have any ideas on what I can do to fix my screwup? I thought I could use 303 on seals, but obviously not.

Einszett Gummi Pflege Stift. You can get it from detailed image, detailers domain, or amazon.

I did the same thing with 303 man. Gummi Pflege works.

Highly diluted IPA solution(4:1 distilled water to 70% IPA), wipe down seals to remove the 303, then wipe down again with just water, then some Gummi Pflege or Swissvax seal feed(expensive but works).

Funny - I had this happened after I cleaned my seals too. Purchased Gummi Pflege - gone. Plus it smells good.

You can try cleaning it first with something like the 303 Cleaner & Spot Remover or a light APC to remove the 303 AP. If not try the Einszett 1Z Gummi Pflege Stift Rubber Care Stick as others have mentioned.
