    i use tissue paper and go between them with my nails and wipe them the dirt off . Its a nerve-wrecking process , but sure pay off . If its wear , then im not sure .

    I apply Armor All onto the rubber parts of my camera, lenses, and tripod to keep them supple. Incidentally, it also has a darkening effect, which is what I believe you're after.

    it happened on my body rubber grip. i used my facial moituriser and applied it using my finger. all turned out black again. nice!

    my friend said he used mink oil. i dunno what is that though, its some oil from some animal i guess that is commonly used for leather.

    try it out n let us know the outcome
    all e best>!

    you can use a toothbrush to get in between the grooves to remove the dirt.

    I use tooth pick and damped cloth to get rid of those dirt inside rubber grooves.

    It's not dirt. It's the rubber.

    My advice is remove it then brush it gently using a toothbrush and soap....then let it dry before putting it back!
