A member came on here back around 2014 with the PolyButter concept. He offered up some free product to a few select folks and from what I recall they found it had little effect. After that it disappeared.

Have you ever heard of the "tire shine trick" ? spray can of stuff like Son of a Gun or ArmorAll it will help you in a jam

Murphy's Oil Soap mixed with water works better than tire shine and way more economical.
