Default Clean and rejuvenate rubber

Greetings all! Anybody have a quick and easy way to clean old paint from window rubber? The previous auto body/painter did not give a DAMN about removing or masking off the trim and such. I have spent $$ to get new weatherstrip and such, but alot remains to be cleaned up. I am trying to avoid just painting the rubber black, but if no other way, what kind of rattle can works well and lasts? Someone said his buddy would soak it all in a tub of Armorall, I gotta wonder how can you afford GALLONS of the stuff just to find out if it really works? Open for suggestions, Thanks in advance.

Acetone should take the paint right off

Brake fluid is another way to remove paint from any surface.

Zippo fluid and a little elbow grease works well.

may have to put something on the rubber after, as the acetone may dry the rubber out, test it on a small spot first.
