soft top - best way to clean zippers

What's the best way to clean the zippers on a soft top? wd-40 and stiff brush?

For dust I blow them out with air & put zipper lube or rub a bar of plain soap on them, I think wd40 would attract dust so maybe' not a good idea

Mopar soft top zipper cleaner. It's got an included brush.

This, I think bestop also makes a bottle that includes a brush. They are both cleaner/lubricants.

Also like mentioned above a air hose will work ok as well. In a pinch soap, or even wax works well as a lubricant, crayons are handy for this.

I agree with jcf, don't use anything like WD40 or White Lithium Grease as they will both attract and hold dirt which will really screw up the zipper until the gunk is cleaned off. Get something that is designed to be a zipper lubricant and avoid problems.
