It's a cleaner, lubricator and protector... CLP.

I use it for a lot of things, but it's mainly for guns.

Rubbing an old candle on the zippers works great too.

Anything that leaves an oily residue, will attract dust and dirt.
Stain the zipper fabric too.

When you wash the Jeep, use a small brush up in there to clean the area, rinse it well and use some silicone spray on the zippers. Makes them work beautifully, without leaving a big ol' mess.
