Is this stuff safe on rubber such as hoses and door gaskets? The manufacturer claims it is but I have noticed it contains petroleum distillates.

Not answering your question directly, but I bought Gunk Silicone spray and it has a boatload of petroleum in it. Stinks like penetrating oil. Chances are the Liquid Wrench is just as bad.

Use Ace Hardware Pure Silicone lubricant (spray) - really good stuff - no petro, no odor.

Dielectric Grease is great to use on rubber gaskets and hoses. It is a little messy but conditions them great.

Some silicons are not compatible with rubber and will actually deteriorate it. Without knowing the exact composition and a compatibility chart it is difficult to know which ones are bad.

Spray the silicone spray on a styrofoam coffee cup. If the cup dissolves quickly, this is not something that is safe around plastics or rubber. For long term safety around rubber, use a pure silicone spray or the grease as mentioned above. You would be surprised at the number of silicone sprays that will fail the cup test!
