I have a general question on the new door seal rubber. When mine arrived I pulled it out of the bag to start planning the installation.

I noticed it is covered with a whitish-gray particle coating all over. Maybe it is new old-stock and has been sitting on the shelf somewhere a long time. I was expecting a black rubber door seal, and it probably is black once you rub off all the gray coating.

Should I take this seal and wash it with soapy water? I don't think adhesive will hold it well in its current condition.
