Meguiar's makes an excellent product for this called Trim Detailer... I've been using it for years!

Just a heads up I've determined acetone and a paper towel and some elbow grease will clean the moldy door weatherstrips (bottom of window running horizontally along door)
Here are some pics. Feedback welcomed. Hope this helps someone else. While your here I'm also soliciting feedback on my factory size wheel scrub issues over in maintenance and repair
(Wheel Scrub) please give me thoughts on this issue. (this also works on the G3 oval rear backglass / windshield moulding

Pics driver door moulding cleaned rear door not.

both pics were with it completely dry! thats why i posted this because I know several forum members have tried all sorts of stuff (neva dull, plastx, back to black etc) and havent been able to get these good looking again. i even read about one person buying new mouldings for $20+/piece to get rid of this. About a millimeter or a half a mm of crud came off my driver one. Havent done my others yet.

Here are some images from now.
