    I use 303 Aerospace Protectant. I think it is one of the best!

    Warm water and a mild soap like Ivory to clean any residue, and if you want then add a rubber/vinyl protectant over it, but be careful to make sure it is not silicone based or it will leave a residue and could attract additional dirt. Water based rubber protectants are much better.

    If your straps are natural rubber, as Nokie says, warm water and soap is all that is needed !!
