Maintenance of rubber seals on slides

What do you recommend for maintenance of the rubber seals on the slides?

A lot of people use baby powder on the seals to keep them from sticking and tearing and I have had good luck with this. Also a silicone spray can be used for wipers and such.

I read somewhere that you should use a Teflon based spray rather than silicone. I found 303 Aerospace which looks like it will work great.

X2 for 303 because it doesn't get stickey,prevents freezing, doesn't breakdown under direct UV and last a good amount of time.
