White rubber molding

Talking about the horizontal molding that runs around the perimeter separating the metal skirting from fiberglass side. Anyone have a method of cleaning? I've tried simple green, goo gone, goof off and even removed a piece and soaked it over night in bucket of 50% Clorox with little success.
I have found that turning a knife blade 90 degrees and using a scraping motion cleans better than anything I've found but is slow and if not careful can cut molding.

Easier and saves time just to replace it. I think I bought a roll from Tweety's but many dealers have it also. Buying it by the roll makes it reasonably priced.

I have tried most all suggestions with not much success. Thought about masking off the area and spraying them with white paint. They paint them on the full body paint units.

Thanks for the tips. To paint as I've considered, it would have to be a special paint like plastic car bumpers are painted. Easy to replace but would be a temporary fix. The other suggestions I will try.
Amazon's 100' roll for $16.00 do you have a link? I want to get the correct molding as there are several different sizes.

Magic eraser soaked with acetone - super easy. I wear a respirator and wear rubber gloves. Done it this way for many years. I cut the erasers in 2 in segments and use all sides.

Never tried magic eraser before. It does do a pretty good job even though it does take some elbow grease. Think secrete is to not let it get bad before cleaning. Might try small area with acetone but that stuff is strong.
