I have a number of designer rubber hooks (Ikea) of varying colors hanging from the wall.
The black and red hooks have white spots (not pictured) all over them.
I have read that this whiteness appearing on the rubber over time is called "blooming" and is due to excess vulcanization powder coming to the surface.
I've wiped them down with olive oil, which seems to have solved it, but I don't know if this is a good solution, or a permanent solution.
How do I clean this white bloom off the rubber and can I prevent it from happening further?
