At one time, a mix of green soap and glycerine was popular as rubber lube. That would be a good choice. It rinsed off easily. However, I imagine any mild soap and water would work, assuming it didn't have weird ingredients.

Rubber  grease in a tube from your auto parts store.
I've found that the best for many many years.

I think I did not explain well when I asked
The question would be: what product do you use to wash the rubber before lubricating it?
thanks for the previous answers

Just warm water in the sink/bath. It's only talcum powder

Warm water and a bit of hand soap.
The scent in it does harm the rubber?
I am not a top contender anyway, so at least the rubber emanates a pleasant perfume on the flying field. Still better than the sweat-soaked shirts of competitors  Wink Cheesy

Typically many people use a very mild soap such as baby shampoo and warm water.
I rarely if ever wash my motors though so ......

If Dawn is gentle enough for degreasing wildlife caught in oil spills...?
