Default Black rubber on keg

So... Everytime I handle my kegs I get black rubber stuff on my hands. Is there any way to get the rubber to stop coming off on my hands? Not sure what I would search for on google or the threads. Any help would be appreciated.

I know you're troubles, but have yet to find a cure . I just bought a cheap rug to keep in the kitchen when I sanitize or rack.

So just wipe it down with armorall wipes? Like for the dashboard or tires?

ArmorAll - Extreme Tire Shine Spray
Click the link for the product that will fix the problem.
By the way, It will work very well on any color top and bottom of the kegs.

I hit mine with oxyclean and it cleaned the top of the kegs right up. I'm not worried about the bottoms because I don't see those that much.

armorall works pretty good, its not magic but it helps a lot
I just used the tire shine stuff and it helped a lot with the decaying rubber.
I still get some marks but no where near as many as before.

When I first get mine, I soak them in PBW, and scrub the black rubber handles till they stop turning the rag black. Works for me.

K-Y Jelly.

It's safe for all rubbers.
