Simple green and soft top zippers...

My zippers on my soft top aren't working so well and I suspect dirt and salt build up... Is a solution 1:1 of simple green and water safe to use? Or a different ratio?

I'd just use some car wash soap and a small brush to get the teeth clean. Then put some zipper lube or candle wax on them to lube them up.

it's not spray lube, and it has the little brush already attached.

And they're clean and smell fresh. Do they make bubbles when it rains?

Actually I use the Mopar zipper lube... Just because I know where the parts dept is at my Jeep dealer... I don't know where in which store they keep the zipper lube anywhere else... My was was the lazy woman's way.
